Atlas Insurance collaborated with the Haz-Zebbug local council and Saggar – and NGO dedicated to the reforestation of the Maltese islands – to plant 10 trees, replacing the Cypress plants which had been stolen following a tree-planting initiative.

The trees were planted along a public path in Wied ta’ Baqqiegha.

“We’re truly appreciative of the financial and human support that Atlas has provided to re-plant these trees,” a Haz-Zebbug local council representative said.

“We condemn acts like the ones we witnessed a few weeks ago and augur that the public can enjoy and appreciate the work being done to our green locality,” the continued.

A small group of TeamAtlas employees helped to plant Pinus Halepensis with the help of a gardener provided by the local council.

“We are really proud to be supporting this initiative and, once again, we are collaborating with Saggar to contribute to the betterment of the Maltese environment, which is in line with Atlas’ own environmental and sustainability program,” said Atlas Insurance CEO and Managing Director Matthew von Brockdorff.

Atlas Insurance aims to collaborate with various local councils in similar initiatives that promote a better environment and contribute towards improving green spaces for the public to enjoy.

Previously, Atlas had teamed up with Saggar and created an opportunity for all its employees to contribute in a hands-on manner toward this national initiative, which has the aim of planting one million trees in Malta.

Volunteers from Team Atlas spent a day at Saġġar’s working facility in Wardija, learning how to grow saplings from seeds and cuttings from other trees. In addition, Atlas gave a donation of €5,000 to Saġġar for the purchasing of supplies and the running of the workshops.
