Staff from law firm Appleby and airport operator Skyport turned over soil to plant 100 endemic cedar trees at the airport.

The Appleby-inspired project highlighted the firm’s interest in contributing to improving the environment. The Monday event saw trees planted throughout the airport grounds.

“We have been focused on participating in and leading more environmentally friendly initiatives,” Appleby’s managing partner Brad Adderley said. “This is our biggest undertaking to date, with more exciting things planned by our team.”

The Bermuda office has taken the lead in introducing a green team committee in its continued effort to transition to a more environmentally friendly workspace for all. The committee is focused on office, home and community-based initiatives.

Mr Adderley said: “We initially wanted to gift all our Appleby and AGS Bermuda employees an endemic cedar tree to plant at their place of residence, but realised that might not be possible for all colleagues and decided to purchase the cedars and donate them on behalf of our Appleby team to the airport, where locals and visitors can enjoy them, and where they can thrive for years to come.

“We hope the cedar trees will further add to the airport’s already green and lush environment, which is beautified with oleanders and hibiscuses.”

Tree planting has become a key initiative in many environmental campaigns around the world to help reduce the impact of carbon emissions and restore natural ecosystems. In 2020, the World Economic Forum launched the Trillion Trees campaign to help restore biodiversity and help fight climate change.

Skyport president Aaron Adderley said Appleby’s donation deeply aligned with Skyport’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship and their recent Level 1 certification under the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, which sets out to reduce airports’ carbon footprints.

“Planting these trees not only beautifies our airport but also creates a meaningful impact on our island’s ecosystem,” he said.
