During a CSR teambuilding event by Prohealth Ltd in late October, 50 tamarisk trees were planted at Xrobb L-Ghagin Park in the Wildlife Rescue and Rehab operations area being run by Nature Trust. True to our character, Prohealth is being innovative even in this aspect. Using the Groasis technology, we aim to have far better survival rates of the saplings that were planted.
‘By planting Tamarisk trees, which predate human presence on the islands, we are literally going back to our roots by planting something truly indigenous and which is so adaptable to our local climate, characterised by extreme heat, little rainfall, and very salty conditions, says John Jaccarini, who heads the CSR committee.
We will continue working to reduce the company’s carbon footprint by planting a tree for each employee on a yearly basis. This initiative and others we are already taking on, such as the Seabin in Spinola Bay, rainwater collection, the elimination of plastic use in the office, waste separation, the soon-to-be installed PV panels on our roof, and others, show our commitment to the environment – our common heritage.
The environment and mental health wellbeing remain the two main pillars of Prohealth’s CSR focus, as the company remains committed to fulfilling its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) responsibilities.
