Environmental conservation in Shanghai and Beijing

March 2012 │ China

To kick off Earth Week, on March 17, 48 volunteers from Deutsche Bank Shanghai, including friends and family members, participated in a tree-planting activity at Shanghai Academy of Agricultural Sciences Zhuanghang Center in Fengxian District. A total of 120 maple saplings were planted. The unpleasant smell of the soil, due to the naturally occurring organic fertilizers, did not affect the volunteers’ enthusiasm. Tree planting was then followed by strawberry picking at a garden nearby. Everyone enjoyed themselves at this meaningful event despite the hard work.

A week later in Beijing, over 90 Deutsche Bank Beijing volunteers, family members and friends participated in the annual tree planting activity at Dashuiyu Village, Huairou District. 240 cypress trees were planted by volunteers at the foot of Dashuiyu Mountain. The volunteers worked hard, having to run up and down the hill several times to transport each sapling and collect water for irrigation. The tiring work did not dampen the morale of the team. Even the youngest in the group, a four year old boy, happily carried a half bucket of water for his tree. Volunteers were delighted to be involved in this initiative with the younger generation and guide them on the importance of environmental conservation.
