In Kenya, Del Monte is planting 1,000 trees in Murang'a County in response to the drought that has hit the East African nation. The initiative will also be carried out in other counties in order to limit the effects of climate change. In order to halt the advance of the desert in Murang'a county, the American food company Del Monte Foods has just planted 1,000 trees at the Maragwa primary school.
The initiative is part of a large reforestation operation launched by Del Monte to plant 2.5 million trees throughout Kenya. Other counties will soon follow suit, making a significant contribution to the government’s goal of reducing Kenya’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 32%.
