ASA environmental sustainability drive reaches Dormaa-Ahenkro


ASA Savings and Loans Limited has planted 160 tree seedlings at Dormaa Senior High School in the Dormaa Municipality of the Bono Region.

Mahogany, ofram, coconut, guava, mango and oranges are some of the tree seedlings planted.

Mr. Isaac Agyapong, Area Manager of the company, said: “This is part of our corporate social responsibility and to support government in the Green Ghana project”.

Also, he said the tree-planting exercise is to contribute to the global fight against climate change.

Mr. Eric K. Asamoah, Branch Manager of the company, mentioned that the tree-planting exercise will be done annually.

Currently, he said the company has exceeded the 2,000 target it set for this year and continues to grow more.

“We want all the institutions in the areas we operate to be filled with trees to serve as shade, for medicinal purpose, among others,” he added.

Mr. Asare Kenneth, a representative from the Forestry Commission, encouraged the school to water the seedlings to grow.

Mr. Richard Nartey, Corporate Social Responsibility Officer of ASA Savings and Loans Limited, added that “the tree-planting exercise is the company’s way of responding to emerging global issues, such as environmental pollution and effects of climate change, as well as ensuring socially responsible stewardship.

He said it is the company’s transition to green economy and the pursuit of long-term sustainability. Sustainability is about preserving the natural resources and the climate for future generations.

Mr. Paul Ackah, Head of the Agric Department at Dormaa Senior High School, was glad the company chose the school for the tree-planting exercise.

“We are happy it has been fenced; we promise to take good care of them to grow to the maturity stage,” he said.
