Tree Planting in Bangladesh

Timberland’s Code of Conduct team works to ensure fair and safe working conditions inside the factories where our products are made, as well as positive living conditions beyond factory walls. In the course of their important work, they often uncover inspirational stories – like this one, which comes from a Timberland supplier in Bangladesh:
In July 2011, Timberland footwear supplier Bangladesh Pou Hung (BPH) launched a massive tree plantation initiative, called ‘Plant Trees and Save Environment.’ Under this initiative the BPH has already started to plant trees at its factory premises and all around the BEPZA trade zones (Bangladesh export processing zone authority).
BPH launched this tree planting initiative with the realization that tree planting is something positive for the environment that everyone can do; there’s no big budget to plant a tree, and its returns are valuable and sustainable.
We’re proud to partner with suppliers like Pou Hung that are committed to taking positive action for the environment, and inspiring others to do the same!
