We want to make the world a more beautiful and better place. For this reason, we set out to plant the first Victoriabank forest.
On the last weekend of March, just on the eve of Earth Hour, Victoriabank afforested an area in Budesti commune with 1,100 seedlings of various species. Over 400 employees of Victoriabank, their relatives and friends, but also employees of other companies such as: BT Leasing Moldova and Proimobil.md planted, shoulder to shoulder, with the support of the verde.md: nuts, lindens, cherries, ashes and olives.
"First of all, this is an initiative to hold our employees and the society in which we live accountable. It is important to be responsible when consuming paper, water, electricity, to think about how hard these trees grow and how difficult it is to participate in a project in which you have to make the effort yourself to make things” green". We believe that our participation in the campaign of creating the first Victoriabank forest will be an incentive for others to follow our example and we will have as many trees as possible per capita in Moldova. The name of the park is borrowed from the practice of our shareholder Banca Transilvania in Romania. Their project is already 5 years old, so they have reached the Transylvania Forest 5.0 version. We are at the first experience, so it is forest 1.0. Congratulations to verde.md for what they have done so far for greening and afforestation. We were very pleased that they agreed to join us in this partnership" – Bogdan Plesuvescu, CEO of Victoriabank, said.
All the people participating in the planting of Victoriabank Forest were satisfied that they could contribute to the greening of the Budesti region, which will not be the only area forested by the "First Bank of Moldova". Now, there will a forest grow where they used to throw waste! The initiative launched by the bank is part of the series of actions, organized by Victoriabank, to contribute to the protection of the natural environment and the encouragement of volunteering.
