Around 90 employees of the Office of the Comptroller General of the Republic participated in the “Sowing Hope” reforestation day, in which 1,200 mahogany bushes were planted in the town of Palero Arriba in the municipality of Bonao, in the province of Monseñor Nouel.
This time, the action was focused on carrying a message of hope within the framework of the commemoration of the “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” and the “Reforestation Month”.
Welcoming remarks were given by Oscar López Reyes, Director of Communications of the Comptroller’s Office, and general guidance was offered by Amanda Santiago, head of the Sustainability and Social Responsibility area.
The activity was attended by the provincial director of the Ministry of the Environment, Franklin Bautista; Rudy Pérez, representing the reforestation department, and Héctor Caraballo, technician of the provincial department.
The reforestation is also part of the Sustainability and Social Responsibility program of the Comptroller’s Office, so that the entity assumes the commitment to promote sustainable practices and an active role in the protection and preservation of the environment. It also seeks to faithfully comply with the National Reforestation Plan, initiated last June by the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader Corona.
About Social Responsibility
The Sustainability and Social Responsibility program was launched in June of this year with the planting of some 2,500 plants in the community of Maimón.
This initiative was conceived with the purpose of carrying out social and environmental actions that impact a given community and involve public servants in social causes.
With this initiative, the Comptroller’s Office is committed to the creation of a culture that contemplates actions oriented to the common good, committed to respect for people, ethical values and interest in the communities.
As part of the actions, the entity also carried out a coastal cleanup day at Manresa beach last September.
