Planting of Cedars Aims for a Greener Lebanon
An environmental project that promotes a green and sustainable environment
Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel, Beirut, Lebanon, celebrated with local communities the planting of 15 cedars through the Lebanese Reforestation Initiative.
Lebanon got a little greener last Friday. Fifteen cedar trees were planted in the village of Ehmej in the northern region by the team of Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel, Beirut, to support the Lebanon Reforestation Initiative (LRI).
Deforestation is a serious issue in Lebanon. With a population that is constantly growing, more forest are being destroyed to be replaced by residential areas, shopping centers, and other buildings. LRI is an environmental project that aims at reforesting Lebanon and promoting a green a sustainable environment.
Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the boarder commitment of the Radisson Hotel Group to sustainable development for many years. Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel, Beirut is passionately green and we are very proud that we have always been a pioneer of Responsible Business. We believe that planet-friendly business is also good business for everyone concerned.
We believe in nature and the preservation of all species; which is why we want to try as much as possible to conserve our precious geographical are and reserves. LRI is seeking to restore the natural appearance of our mountains in order to boost tourism and the economy and we look forward to achieving more together. Despite all the challenges, there is still hope for green spaces through nature preservation. It is also important to defend against global warming which is affecting almost the entire world and threatening wildlife, flora and vegetation.
The Lebanon Reforestation Initiative (LRI) – a program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) - implements a community-based reforestation program that has resulted in the planting of more than half a million native trees throughout Lebanon since 2011. The project promotes a participatory approach to reforestation, bringing together diverse committed municipalities, local stakeholders, Lebanese civil society organisations, and other participants – such as the private sector – to restore and replant degraded community lands.
