Knox City Council coordinates two National Tree Day planting events each year in July - a day for the community where everyone can get involved, and another for businesses to come together and network whilst making a positive difference in the local environment and community.
There are a host of reasons why trees are good for the environment, not least of which is their ability to improve air quality, mask urban noise and beautify surroundings, which helps attract business to the area. The plants will provide valuable habitat and food sources for local wildlife and will build on existing habitat to extend wildlife corridors.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) describes how a business commits to and becomes involved in initiatives contributing to the interests and welfare of their employees, customers, the environment and the community. National Tree Day is a great CSR opportunity for businesses to contribute to their local environment and community. These events are great team building opportunities and act as an entry point for greater community involvement and environmental awareness.
As more and more consumers, businesses and employees seek out organisations with moral and ethical dimensions, Corporate Citizenship is fundamental for any business regardless of size aiming for long term sustainability. It develops a positive image and reputation for businesses, builds customer loyalty, increases profits and makes you an employer of choice.
