A Tree for Each – Coconut Plant Distribution by ATG Group

ATG Group of Companies launched its Third “Green Project,” a coconut plant distribution, at ATG Premises in Katunayake. Under the programme, 2000 Coconut Plants were distributed to the staff and they were encouraged to plant more trees in their neighbourhoods, as a mean to create environmentally friendly households.

Joining in the ceremony, Mr. M K D Lawrance – Director All Zones at Free Trade Zone, Katunayake said that they require more companies to join in this initiative of making a greener Sri Lanka.

Speaking at the event, Managing Director of ATG Group of Companies, Mr. Fazaal Abdeen said that the company aims to do more projects of this nature that will benefit the environment. He further explained that a number of coconut trees were cut down in the expansion process of one of their companies in Koggala Free Trade Zone, therefore this distribution will be a mean to compensate to that.
