Mapfre em­ploy­ees plant trees and hold clean-up at Mel­lieha

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

Em­ploy­ees of Mapfre Malta planted trees and held a clean-up in Mel­lieħa, as part of Mapfre’s Global Vol­un­teer­ing Day.

Across 26 coun­tries in which Mapfre op­er­ates, 6,700 em­ploy­ees vol­un­teered by plant­ing over 1,500 trees and col­lect­ing more than seven tons of garbage in 51 dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties held around the globe.

The aim of this ini­tia­tive was to raise aware­ness about the im­por­tance of car­ing for our en­vi­ron­ment. Cor­po­rate vol­un­teer­ing forms an in­te­gral part of the Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity Strat­egy of the Mapfre Group.

This was the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year in which em­ploy­ees of Mapfre Mid­dle­sea and Mapfre MSV Life chose to help in Malta’s af­foresta­tion plans by plant­ing trees. The CEOs of both com­pa­nies also par­tic­i­pated in this event.

“We can­not stress enough the im­por­tance of plant­ing trees. They give off oxy­gen that we need to breathe and they are home for many birds and mam­mals. It is amaz­ing to see so many vol­un­teers across the globe com­ing to­gether for one goal,” Fe­lipe Navarro, CEO of Mapfre Mid­dle­sea said.

Through­out the year, Mapfre Malta or­gan­ises a num­ber of ini­tia­tives through which em­ploy­ees of­fer their time to help out in the com­mu­nity. “It is our duty to give back to the com­mu­nity in which we op­er­ate in. Such ac­tiv­i­ties mo­ti­vate our vol­un­teers fur­ther and ed­u­cate them about the im­por­tance of be­ing a re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zen,” said Ines Silva, HR chief of­fi­cer of Mapfre Mid­dle­sea.
