ACCA/NParks Plant a Tree Project20th September 2022
As part of ACCA’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 13 – Climate Action), ACCA Singapore has partnered with National Parks Board’s (NParks) OneMillionTrees Movement and the Garden City Fund, to allow our member and business community to play a bigger, more important role in conserving and enhancing the splendid greenery that surrounds us.
Headed by the ACCA Community and Social Impact (CSI) Interest Group and supported by the ACCA Singapore office, the movement raised a total of $16,540 from generous donations by ACCA members, employers and friends of ACCA.
Special acknowledgement goes to Coinhako, a local crypto company, as the key supporter and underwriter of the event. Coinhako knew about this initiative through its ACCA member employee and decided to support it in a big way. With its generous support, the total collections had even exceeded the initial target of $15,000.
The project cumulated in a tree planting event on Friday, 16 September along Upper Serangoon View. 34 supporters of the event, including ACCA volunteers from the CSI group, ACCA staff members, our CAANZ friends and the team from Coinhako showed up with gloves in hand to plant a total of 55 trees.
“The members had a fruitful day getting their hands dirtied and experiencing first-hand the joy and significance of doing a small part for our environment.”
Irene Ho FCCA, Lead of the ACCA Community and Social Impact Group
“This is a meaningful event to remind ourselves that we all need to do our part to protect the environment.”
