Harapan Island, July 7, 2023 – Rocktree Group, a leading multinational dry bulk logistics company, recently partnered with CarbonEthics, an impact enterprise dedicated to restoring climate balance and a pioneer in blue carbon conservation, in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event aimed at sequestering carbon emissions. Seventeen dedicated Rocktree Group employees planted 500 mangroves at Harapan Island (7/7).

By planting 500 mangroves, Rocktree Group demonstrated their commitment to sustainability and their dedication to minimizing their carbon footprint.
The event involved the participation of 17 passionate Rocktree Group employees who enthusiastically contributed their time and effort to make a positive impact on the environment. Their collective action serves as an inspiration for others to step up and take responsibility for sequestering carbon emissions. Each participant played a crucial role in ensuring the successful implementation of the CSR event.

By partnering with organizations like CarbonEthics, Rocktree Group aims to leverage its expertise and experience to maximize the impact of its sustainability efforts.
Through this partnership, CarbonEthics hopes to engage more institutions in the decarbonization efforts, championing blue carbon conservation and the empowerment of coastal communities.
