Lagos government collaborates with bank to plant 250 trees.

According to the Lagos State Government, planting 250 Queen palm trees on Victoria Island in partnership with Standard Chartered Bank will help combat climate change. According to a statement on Thursday, this information was revealed by the general manager of the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, Mrs.


Adetoun Popoola, during a tree-planting activity on Victoria Island. Popoola noted that the financial institution's tree-planting initiative is part of its sustainability agenda to achieve environmental sustainability and a net zero carbon emission. Popoola was represented by the agency's Head of Tree Planting and Maintenance Department, Mrs.


Funto Aina. The "net zero carbon emission" campaign, which is being promoted all over the world, is crucial for striking a balance between greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere and those that are being removed, the speaker continued.


Planting trees is among the easiest and least expensive ways to accomplish this. "Climate change is a threat to both the human species and the ecology since it causes the world to continually warm up as a result of many of our everyday activities, such as transportation and energy production, which might have fatal effects if left unchecked.


We are pleased that Standard Chartered Bank supports our mission to plant 250 trees and protect the environment and that they see the value in what we do at LASPARK. Lamin Manjang, the bank's chief executive officer, emphasized the importance of environmental protection in his speech.


Planting trees is one way to lessen the effects of climate change on the environment, and environmental sustainability is at the top of our organization's agenda, he said. "The global warming era has been predicted long ago, and it stresses the need for everyone to support the environment.
