As part of the series of events commemorating World Environment Day in 2023, PT. Bumi Konawe Minerina (BKM), an investment company in North Konawe Regency, held a mahogany tree planting initiative in the former pit area recently.
The Mining Technical Head of PT. BKM, Eko Setiawan Sidik, stated that the mahogany tree planting in the former pit area of PT. Bumi Konawe Minerina is a commitment by the company to reforest the previously opened mining land covering an area of 1 hectare.
“The tree planting will be carried out gradually in the designated 1-hectare area. The plan is to plant around four hundred trees,” he said.
In the future, Eko Setiawan Sidik mentioned that the company has scheduled to conduct annual tree planting activities regularly in the final reclamation area.
“Besides the tree planting activity, PT. Bumi Konawe Minerina is also participating in an environmental and workplace safety campaign competition involving its employees, taking place for one month in July 2023,” he concluded.
