REFINITIV Philippines, led by its Sustainability Action Team, completed a reforestation project at the La Mesa Dam and Reservoir. This is part of the company's global reforestation initiative called the Refinitiv Global Forest.
Through this project, Refinitiv aims to combat climate change by planting and conserving one million trees across the world by 2030 through its identified sites.
The local activity served as a prelude to the identification of a third Refinitiv Global Forest site, to be unveiled in the Philippines in 2021.
The first two sites were launched this year in Scotland and Tanzania, respectively.
The Refinitiv Global Forest mirrors Refinitiv's 2020 sustainability goals, which are all guided by three core pledges on environment, social impact, and sustainable initiatives -- all in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Early this year, the global provider of financial markets and data also announced the early achievement of these targets and is already moving forward with a new set of goals for 2025 and 2030. (PR)
