On March 16 2016 Cargill, Semarang Branch as the second planting project of Cargill, planted 1000 Albazia trees. This is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility efforts which means that the company should care not only for the environment but for the local community as well.
Albazia trees were chosen because they are relatively easy to grow, fast growing, and have economical value at the time of harvest. Albazia is also good for capturing water.
Cargill Indonesia, Purwodadi Branch joins Trees4Trees in turning Ketitang village green.
Ketitang is close to Cargill factory buildings and is a rather desolate area. It is hot and uncomfortable all day long and it almost calls for something to be done about it. The mahogany trees were chosen because of their capacity for providing some shade and cool to the area.
