HOYA Employees in Brazil Plant 140 Trees to Mark Environmental Week

As part of their annual recognition of Environmental Week, employees of HOYA Vision Care Brazil recently launched a re-forestation initiative, joining forces to plant 140 trees across Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo.

Arising from the One Vision programme, the initiatve was idealized by HOYA Brazil’s HSE/QA Manager, Mrs. Fabiola Hamaoka.
Taking place in June, the tree-planting project brought all hands-on deck, with employees being joined by their families to collectively sow the seeds of the future.

“The purpose was to reinforce the culture of environmental preservation to HOYA Employees and the next generations – hence our successful invite for families to participate. We were grateful to have shared this experience with colleagues from the global team as well, who during their business travels, have decided to join us! Together, we can shape a world where nature thrives and generations to come will enjoy the results of our collective efforts.” -Leonardo Martins, One Vision Ambassador, HOYA Vision Care Brazil.

The trees planted during Environmental Week are a symbol of our shared responsibility in creating a better tomorrow, while serving a strong practical role: it’s estimated that in just one year, a mature tree will absorb more than 48lbs of CO ₂, releasing oxygen in exchange.
