Earlier this year, the o2h community collaborated with The Ahmedabad Project to plant over 2000 trees in the community managed urban forest at Thaltej, Ahmedabad. The Ahmedabad Project was founded by Renu Pokhrana and aims to create awareness on governance among the citizens.
This collaboration was in line with o2h group’s aim of becoming a carbon neutral company in the near future and planting 10,000 trees as a first step – besides other sustainable development practices adopted and implemented internally across all the sites.
An urban forest, as the name suggests, is a systematic method of developing mini forest or collection of trees within a city, town or a suburb. In addition to beautification of the urban environment, techniques such as urban forest play a crucial role in preserving natural ecology as well as offer benefits like positively impacting climate.
The o2h community has so far planted more than 4000 trees in various regions of Gujarat and has collaborated with many well-known local NGOs throughout the journey to effectively reach its goal of planting 10,000 trees and subsequently becoming a carbon neutral company.
