The Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Ghana Integrated Aluminum Development Corporation (GIADEC)  Hon Akwasi Osei-Adjei has called on government to declare the Green Ghana Day celebration as Holiday like Famers day for Ghanains to get the opportunity to go to the nearest nursery center for the seedlings.

Delivering his speech during the Commemoration of the Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai Municipal 2024 Green Ghana Day at the Bibiani Government Hospital, He Explained that it is with great joy and pride that we join you in celebrating Green Ghana Day.

He said Today marks an important milestone in our collective efforts to protect and nurture our environment. As many of you are aware, the Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC) is committed to establishing a robust Integrated Aluminium Industry (IAI) that is designed to drive economic growth and development across our nation.

He said their vision for the IAI goes beyond mere industrialization. At GIADEC, we firmly believe that economic progress must go hand in hand with environmental stewardship. This belief forms the core of our operations and is reflected in our unwavering commitment to biodiversity action. We recognize that the natural beauty of Ghana, particularly our precious forests, must be preserved and protected, even as we engage in the extraction and processing of bauxite.

The hallmark of our approach is the integration of sustainable practices that safeguard our forests while enabling us to harness the economic potential of our bauxite resources. We are dedicated to implementing strategies that minimize the environmental impact of our activities, ensuring that our operations coexist harmoniously with nature. Through our innovative practices, we aim to set a new standard for the mining industry, demonstrating that it is possible to achieve industrial success without compromising the health of our ecosystems.

Today, as we come together to plant trees and rejuvenate our green spaces, we reaffirm our commitment to this vision. Green Ghana Day is not just an event; it is a symbol of our dedication to creating a sustainable future for our nation. By integrating biodiversity steps to initiate our offset programs. This is not merely a symbolic gesture; it is a concrete action that aligns with our broader strategy of environmental stewardship.

Our ambitious goal is to plant three times the number of trees we will degrade through our mining activities. This three-to-one ratio reflects our deep commitment to creating a net positive impact on the environment. It ensures that for every tree affected by our operations, three new trees will be planted, thereby contributing to a significant increase in forest cover and biodiversity.

He said collaboration is key to the success of our offset programs. We will work closely with the Forestry Commission to ensure that the areas we plant are protected and maintained. This partnership will involve continuous monitoring and care of the planted areas, ensuring their growth and survival. Special attention will be given to those areas specifically earmarked for our offset programs, as these will serve as critical benchmarks for our reforestation and conservation efforts.

In conclusion, our offset programs are a testament to GIADEC's commitment to environmental sustainability. By actively engaging in reforestation and ecological restoration, we aim to mitigate the impact of our industrial activities and contribute to the health and vitality of Ghana's forests. Together with the support of the community
and our partners, we are confident that we can achieve our vision of a greener, more sustainable future for all.
