ExxonMobil Australia staff take on Conservation Volunteers Australia's largest annual planting event
To celebrate World Environment Day, two teams of ExxonMobil Australia staff participated in Conservation Volunteers Australia’s annual planting challenge.
The teams, based in Perth and Melbourne, were a part of 180 representatives and 22 teams who swapped out their morning meetings for a few quality hours amongst nature, together planting nearly 7,000 trees.
ExxonMobil LNG Australia General Manager, Marg Rogacki, was one of eight staff members who participated in the challenge in Perth.
“ExxonMobil is proud to support Conservation Volunteers Australia, and we’re thankful for the opportunity to connect with nature and get our hands dirty whilst encouraging teamwork and a little bit of rivalry as we worked to plant the most seedlings and be crowned the winner of our region,” said Marg.
“Although we didn’t take home the winning title this year, we had a great time and everyone involved should be congratulated on their impressive effort,” she continued.
ExxonMobil Australia has been a long-time supporter of Conservation Volunteers Australia, having partnered with them since 1992.
“We work with long-term corporate partners to build teamwork through environmental stewardship, today’s challenge was to celebrate World Environment Day,” said Ellie Corley, Strategic Partnerships Director at Conservation Volunteers Australia.
“For some clients, our Corporate Challenge Series is often their first experience partnering with Conservation Volunteers Australia and it’s a great way to build long-term relationships, strengthen local ecosystems, and provide homes for the local species,” she concluded.
