Therefore, it came up with a campaign to encourage its employees to take alternate transportation instead of driving private cars. The campaign resulted in a 1,417.7 kgCo2e greenhouse gas emission reduction, which is equivalent to planting 150 trees. One tree can provide a year’s supply of oxygen for 2 people.
