Activities staged for a greener Vietnam

Thanh Hoa, May 28 (VNA) - A series of activities focusing on the environment was held in the central province of Thanh Hoa’s Vinh Loc District on May 27.

The event was jointly organised by Panasonic Vietnam, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s Environment Administration and the provincial People’s Committee.

Under the programme, Panasonic Vietnam planted 20,000 trees for Vinh Loc District, which is home to the Ho Citadel, raising the total number of trees it planted in provinces across the country over the past three years to 70,000.

The “Panasonic for a green Vietnam” programme not only aims to create green space but also helps mitigate greenhouse gases and responds to climate change in these areas, according to the company’s press release.

The company also presented 300 solar-powered lamps to the Nhu Thanh and Quan Son districts, which still have no access to electricity.

Also, a class on the environment was organised inside the Ho Citadel complex for 100 local students.

A programme encouraging local residents to exchange used batteries for Panasonic’s green batteries was also held.
