This year was BNP Paribas’ fifth consecutive year sponsoring MillionTreesNYC. By supporting this joint initiative between the NYC Parks Department and the New York Restoration Project, the Bank has contributed to the Mayor’s goal of planting one million new trees in New York City over the next decade.
Volunteer efforts this year focused largely around St. Mary’s Hospital in Queens. At our “adopted” tree planting site, BNP Paribas volunteers worked with the New York Restoration Project over the spring and summer months to plant over 130 trees on the hospital grounds. Work at the site wrapped up with BNP Paribas Cares Day on September 13th.
Stay tuned for the next MillionTrees event! On October 27th, BNP Paribas will participate in Fall Reforestation Day, a city-wide event where volunteers will plant 20,000 new trees across the five boroughs of New York City.
