Road towards 15 Billion Trees

In support of the government’s plan to plant 15 billion trees by 2032, KAM, in partnership with Synresins and the Kenya Forest Service, planted 11,000 seedlings today at Kinale Forest in Kiambu County.

KAM Chief Executive, Anthony Mwangi, emphasized that KAM is committed to driving the green manufacturing agenda. This commitment manifests in two ways: by transitioning production systems to be environmentally friendly and by actively planting trees to capture carbon emissions. He emphasized that this initiative is not just about planting trees but about nurturing their growth.

The CEO of Synresins, Ms Mira Shah expressed enthusiasm for the achievement in the first quarter, stating, ‘We are celebrating this milestone for Q1. Synresins will continue to partner with KAM and KFS for future tree planting activities.’

Also present was Mr Arun Devani, Chairman Synresins, who remarked, ‘I have been a staunch proponent of industrialization for many years and its integration into various sectors of the economy.’

Officials from the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) expressed their appreciation for the Association’s efforts to increase the country’s forest cover by planting more trees. Their recognition highlights the important progress made by the Association in addressing deforestation and supporting environmental sustainability.
