Ghana: VRA Plants 2,500 Seedlings To Mark Green Ghana Day


Ghana’s largest state-owned power generation company, Volta River Authority (VRA), last Friday, June 7, 2024, organised a tree-planting exercise across all its work locations to commemorate this year’s ‘Green Ghana Day’.

Held under the theme: ‘Growing for a Greener Tomorrow’, the initiative saw the planting of 2,500 seedlings, symbolising the Authority’s dedication to sustainable practices and environmental conservation.

Aligned with national efforts to combat deforestation and mitigate climate change, the exercise also sought to amplify the Authority’s commitment to ensuring development.

The Chief Executive, Mr Emmanuel Antwi-Darkwa, in a speech read on his behalf by the Deputy Chief Executive (Finance), Dr Ebenezer Tagoe, underscored the significance of the exercise, emphasising the intrinsic link between environmental sustainability and VRA’s core mission of powering national development.

“This undertaking is more than an environmental stewardship; it reflects our unwavering commitment as guardians of national development and proponents of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” he remarked.

The exercise also served as a catalyst for environmental education with participants receiving guidance on tree planting and care.

As the seedlings take root and flourish, they stand as tangible reminders of VRA’s pledge to champion sustainability and pave the way for a greener and environmentally sustainable Ghana.
