Hanoi (VNA)Toyota Motor Vietnam Co. Ltd. (TVM) will plant 1,000 trees in eight secondary and primary schools in Vinh Phuc, Nghe An and Dong Nai provinces as part of the programme “Toyota chung tay xanh hoa hoc duong” (Toyota joins hands for green schools) launched in Vinh Phuc province on April 4.

Speaking at the event, Nguyen Viet Dung from the Vietnam Environment Administration under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) said that the programme will create a tree planting movement nationwide, especially at schools.

He added that through the programme, the MoNRE hopes for greater involvement of local people, organisations, schools and armed forces in afforestation and forest protection.

The programme will be carried out annually and more trees will be grown to create a clean and fresh environment, he highlighted.

Meanwhile, Toru Kinoshita, General Director of the TVM, said that the programme, held for the first time in line with the orientation of Japanese Toyota Motor Corporation, will contribute to the global environment’s sustainable development.

Aiming to raise public awareness of environment protection, the company attaches special importance to educating young generations about environment improvement in Vietnam.

Since its establishment in Vietnam in 1995, the TVM has made efforts to carry out social activities in numerous areas, especially environment protection with a line-up of meaningful programmes like using biogas for small-scale electricity energy production, ecological village building, and the television programme Green Journey.-VNA
