KUMASI, GHANA, June 9, 2023/ -- Genser Energy today announced a major tree-planting initiative in alignment with the National Green Ghana Day. This ambitious endeavor aims to enhance environmental conservation, promote biodiversity, and contribute to the country's overall sustainability goals.

Under the initiative named "Genser Goes Green: Powering the Future with Trees," Genser Energy plans to plant an impressive 70,000 trees in June and July along its 110 km Pipeline Right of Way (ROW) in the Ashanti Region. Over the next five years Genser Energy has committed to plant one million trees.

Working hand-in-hand with the sustainability and community relations team, Genser Energy has formed strategic partnerships with local stakeholders to ensure community participation and garnered support for this important cause. Community engagement is a vital aspect of Genser Energy's approach to environmental sustainability, ensuring that the initiative reflects the collective efforts of all participants involved.

Recognizing the significance of government collaboration, Genser Energy acknowledges the critical role played by key partners such as the Energy Commission, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Forestry Commission. These partnerships enable Genser to operate in compliance with regulations, and benefit from the expertise of these esteemed agencies.

Issah Mohammed of Genser Energy expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, "We are not just passing through Ashanti; we are here to stay. By planting these trees, we are committed to preserving the region's cherished status as the 'Garden City' and making a lasting impact on the environment. Together with our partners and the local communities, we are taking proactive steps towards building a greener and more sustainable future for Ghana."

In addition to this tree-planting initiative, Genser Energy continues to implement a comprehensive range of sustainability measures. These include increasing investments in renewable energy sources, promoting energy efficiency through the adoption of advanced technologies, and actively engaging with local communities to address their needs and concerns.
