“Our commitment to environmental preservation is not just a corporate mandate; it’s a shared responsibility towards the wellbeing of our communities. Our environmental initiatives are rooted in nurturing awareness, education, and active participation in tree planting. Our goal is to play a pivotal role in preserving our environment for future generations,’’ she said.

According to AAR Healthcare, they aim to mirror the government environmental effort in combating deforestation by creating a greener and healthier environment for the community while also contributing to the fight against climate change.

“The urgency of national tree-planting efforts in Kenya is clear as the current forest cover is at 8.8%, falling below the recommended global target of 10%. Tree planting initiatives like Trees for Health will help us secure our planetary and individual health and play a role in the fight against climate change,” Europa Pharmaceuticals Chief Executive Officer, Anantharaman Nagarajan said.

“By collectively participating in these initiatives, we can pave the way for a greener, healthier, and more sustainable future for Kenya.”

The healthcare provider has planted 5,000 trees out of the projected 37,000 in 2023 in Ngong Forest as a way of combating environmental degradation.
