The Honda Canada Foundation received a Green Legacy Award at Allison Conference during a forestry conference.
The event brought together 400 forestry enthusiasts from across the province for discussions and presentations under the theme of Natural Connections and also hosted an award ceremony that recognized groups and individuals that have contributed to Ontario forestry.
The 2019 Green Legacy Award recognizes a corporate partner who has been leading the change to a green future and was presented to the Honda Canada Foundation, a long-time partner of Forests Ontario, through their ‘One Honda, One Tree’ initiative.
The initiative plants a tree for every Honda lawn mower, tiller, or trimmer sold between April and July, and it has managed to plant over 100,000 trees across five provinces successfully.
Honda also encourages its employees to support and participate in Community Tree Plant events, resulting in hundreds of their employees’ planting trees.
