Employees of Nhood Services Hungary took part in a tree planting project
Nhood, a company that develops, regenerates and operates mixed use properties, places special emphasis on social and environmental responsibility. It conducts all its activities for the benefit of the community, taking into account the impact on people and the planet in all its decision-making. Nhood seeks to create added value by taking an integrated approach and, in collaboration with local advocacies, associations and residents, transforms its sites into lively community spaces with a triple positive impact (environmental-social-economic).
With the collaboration between Nhood, the local government and the foundation, on March 5, 2021, the playground area was enriched with a total of 144 saplings. The Nhood donated 40 trees and 15 evergreens, which the colleagues planted themselves after a short preparation. Nhood employees improved the soil with organic seed treatment to make the planted trees as strong as possible, and covered the tree plate with a high-absorbency mulch to protect freshly the planted seedlings from drying out.
„Through our work in the area of the playground we helped to create a park where both children and adults can have a good time and which makes this neighborhood more beautiful. Warmer summers and rising temperatures caused by the climate change make it necessary to shade public spaces, and the role of trees and plants is particularly important in this. The trees planted here will form a cool grove in a few years and sequester 22.3 tons of CO2 as well as 170 tons of dust in 10 years while producing 24.5 tons of O2. The 144 trees planted on March 5th will represent nearly 36 million HUF value for the local population in 10 years. Plus, these good-natured community activities bring the team closer together, making it easier for employees to communicate and work together on office days.” - said Dóra Diána Szemerédi, CSR and Internal Communications Senior Manager about the tree planting.
