“Today, we are honored to be back to extend Ricoh greenery effort at Siloso Trail, and also happy to revisit Sentosa Island to witness the fruit of our labor which Ricoh has planted 9 years ago, back in 2008.” said Mr. Kaz Goto, Managing Director of Ricoh Asia Pacific.
Ricoh planted many different types of Singapore-indigenous-trees during this event, such as Memecylon Edule (commonly known as Delek Air), Ardisia Elliptica (Mata-ayam), Podacarpus Polystachyus (Sea Teak) and other species at the stretch of Siloso Trail. Some of the trees are considered as endangered or critically endangered species. Not only Ricoh employees have got the opportunity to learn more about the local tree species and plant breeds, but their children have also enjoyed the ecological craft workshop.
