Under the patronage of HRH Governor of the Eastern Province Prince Saud ibn Nayef ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz Al Sa’ud, Saudi Aramco on Sunday launched an ambitious environmental stewardship initiative to plant 1 million trees native to Saudi Arabia throughout the Kingdom by 2025.

The “Saudi Aramco Environmental Initiative for Planting One Million Trees” follows the company’s successful project of planting 2 million mangrove trees along the shores of the Arabian Gulf coast, which was completed in 2017, and is in keeping with Saudi Aramco’s ongoing effort toward nurturing the Kingdom’s biodiversity. These environmental stewardship efforts are also aligned with Saudi Vision 2030, as well as the United Nations conventions on conserving biodiversity. 

We are looking forward to creating a vegetation cover in order to reduce the effects of sandstorms and absorb 20,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year
