Riyadh: ROSHN, the Kingdom’s leading national real estate developer and PIF-funded giga-project, has launched a live tree planting event led by its YUHYEEK Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative at Cityscape Global in Riyadh to highlight the importance of environmental sustainability to attendees.
The ROSHN green initiative will turn its outdoor pavilion at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center, where the Cityscape exhibition is held, into an interactive space allowing attendees to participate in the tree planting initiative and take part in raising awareness about the importance of sustainable environmental practices. The initiative will account to more than 300 trees planted, which will then be relocated to a permanent home in one of ROSHN’s developments.
“At ROSHN we put sustainability at the heart of everything we do and integrate the natural world into our every one of our developments. You can see this in the green spaces, parks, and tree-shaded living streets that are so important to boosting quality of life through our communities. With this interactive live tree planting initiative, we’re showcasing how the natural world is a vital partner to the future of living, while our wider green initiatives extending the benefits of nurturing the natural world across the Kingdom,” said David Grover, ROSHN’s Group CEO.
