Muscat: Strengthening its commitment to sustainability, Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has joined the national initiative to plant 10 million trees in 10 years. The fuel marketing company has allocated several of its service stations to the scheme, which was inaugurated by the Environment Authority (EA) and Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) in 2020 during Oman Environment Day 8th January in order to preserve wild plants, combat desertification and increase green areas in the Sultanate. As part of its active Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, OOMCO continues to champion charitable, educational, and environmental causes that add value to the community.

tion and preservation of our precious natural resources, as well as creating wider economic benefits for local communities.”
