The company announced the Alliance ‘Sustainable Cartama’ that involves representatives of the public and private sectors.
Celsia said that this alliance seeks the protection and environmental regeneration of the Cartama Province, in the Southwest of Antioquia, according to a press release.
“The goal is to achieve the recovery of strategic ecosystems in the region through restoration practices, the protection of the Cartama river basin and the promotion of sustainable development,” Celsia said.
Proantioquia’s Project Manager, Edward Jaramillo, recalled that the initial objective was to plant 62,000 trees of different species, but this figure was quickly exceeded.
“A strategic component is the creation of educational modules thought about the role of young people in the Province,” Jaramillo said.
Maria Camila Villegas, Conservation Director of the Fundación Grupo Argos, said that it is a source of pride to be able to announce this alliance for the conservation of this strategic area.
“We will continue working with determination to protect water. We will plant 300,000 native trees,” Villegas said.
The alliance will seek the development of training, education, and environmental culture activities for the communities of different municipalities in the region.
Celsia said that the alliance achieved the recovery of more than 140 hectares from the restoration of strategic areas. More than 200,000 trees were planted in 2019 and 119,000 in 2020 in the Cartama basin.
