Hyundai Oilbank's Voluntary Tree Caretaker Campaign Spurs Interest in Environmental Conservation

Hyundai Oilbank announced that it successfully conducted the “100 Days of Tree Caretaker Project” campaign to promote environmental awareness among the employees, as part of the company’s commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices.

The campaign invites the employees to grow tree saplings at home for 100 days, providing a log-based container from fallen trees and native tree seeds. Around 100 employees participated in the campaign, where they were given the opportunity to personally plant their grown saplings in the tree grove of Noeul Park.

Approximately 200 saplings were grown with affection and care over a period of 100 days, and then were returned to nature. If all the saplings successfully grow into a healthy forest, it is estimated to reduce 40 tonnes of carbon throughout their entire lifecycle, according to the standard from National Institute of Forest Science in 2019.

Reflecting on the campaign, an employee from Hyundai Oilbank said, “Throughout the whole campaign, I could feel the sincerity toward the environment as they used eco-friendly packaging and containers from recycled wood. It was truly gratifying to think that my small sapling would grow into a part of the forest.”

An official from Hyundai Oilbank stated, "With the enthusiastic engagement of our employees, it was quite meaningful to grow a number of saplings that would become a forest. We will continue to promote ESG campaigns and various activities, further internalizing ESG management into the company."
