THANH HÓA – A series of activities focusing on the environment was held in the central province of Thanh Hóa’s Vĩnh Lộc District yesterday.

The event was jointly organised by Panasonic Việt Nam and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s Environment Administration as well as the provincial People’s Committee.  

Under the programme, Panasonic Việt Nam grew 20,000 trees for Vĩnh Lộc District, which is home to the Hồ Citadel, raising the total number of trees granted to provinces across the country over the past three years to 70,000.

The “Panasonic for a green Việt Nam” programme not only aims to create a green space but also helps mitigate greenhouse gases and responds to climate change in these areas, according to a press release.

The company also presented 300 solar-powered lanterns to the Như Thanh and Quan Sơn districts, which still have no access to electricity.

Also, a class on the environment was organised inside the Hồ Citadel complex for 100 students from Vĩnh Lộc District’s Vĩnh Tiến Secondary School.

A programme encouraging local residents to exchange used batteries for Panasonic’s green batteries was also held. — VNS
