Guwahati Refinery and Pollution Control Board, Assam, Launch Mass Tree Plantation Drive


Guwahati: As part of its commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2046, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) has initiated a mass tree plantation drive through its Guwahati Refinery in collaboration with the Pollution Control Board, Assam. This initiative aligns with India’s pledge at COP 26 to become Net Zero by 2070.

The drive, launched during the World Environment Day celebrations at Guwahati Refinery, involves planting 25,000 saplings of more than four native species on a 1.2-hectare plot using the “Modified” Akira Miyawaki method for carbon sequestration. This method promotes rapid forest growth and increased biodiversity.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Guwahati Refinery and the Pollution Control Board, Assam, to ensure the successful execution of this initiative. This collaboration marks a significant step towards reducing emissions and promoting sustainability through energy reduction, green fuel usage, and extensive tree planting efforts.
