MGA Plant 17 New Trees For New Employees In Green Initiative

MGA Plant 17 New Trees For New Employees In Green Initiative
Jan 31 2024 Share

The Malta Gaming Authority has embarked on a new initiative that continues to echo our commitment towards Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles. 

As a part of our ongoing efforts to champion sustainability, we are proud to announce a unique initiative, whereby one tree is planted for every new employee that joins the Authority.

Kicking off this project, the MGA recently planted 17 trees, a mixture of the indigenous Tamarisk and Chaste trees, at the Marsaskala Nature Trust Reserve. This area is currently undergoing several conservation projects, and we hope that our initiative contributes to this mission.

17 MGA employees, who joined the Authority over the year 2023, got their hands dirty planting the saplings and learnt more about conservation, what needs to be done when planting a tree, and the after-care that Nature Trust will carry out to ensure that these trees continue to grow.

Christopher Formosa, Deputy CEO and COO, said: “This initiative aligns perfectly with the MGA’s dedication to fostering a more sustainable future. By planting a tree in the name of our new joiners, we aim not only to signify the beginning of their journey with us, but also to symbolise the professional growth and development we anticipate for both them and our organisation”.
