Arbor Day is an annual celebration that encourages people to plant and care for trees. It is a day when we reflect on the beauty and importance of trees, and the vital role they play in sustaining life on our planet. Arbor Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, and it is a time for communities to come together to plant trees and promote environmental awareness.

Avanti and Croda have experienced incredible growth and positive changes. As a company, we have adopted several new initiatives that align ourselves with Croda. Croda’s Purpose - Smart science to improve lives™ - underpins our commitment to sustainability. Smart science embodies our innovative philosophy and ability to offer customers something different and valuable. Improving lives describes the positive impact our products have in use and how we are working to reduce the environmental impact of our actions.

In the spirit of sustainability, Avanti has adopted a wonderful idea from Croda Indonesia Cikarang to show appreciation for their colleagues who visit the Alabaster site. The idea is simple but powerful - for every visitor, Avanti plants a tree in their honor and identifies the tree with a plaque that includes their name, title, and date of visit. This small gesture not only shows appreciation for their colleagues but also supports the company's sustainability commitment.

Planting trees is one of the most effective ways to combat climate change and promote a healthy environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. Trees also provide numerous benefits such as producing oxygen, improving air quality, providing habitat for wildlife, and preventing soil erosion.

To date, Avanti has planted 64 trees in honor of their visitors, which is a remarkable achievement! Each tree represents a small but significant step towards a greener and more sustainable future. The trees will continue to grow and thrive, providing benefits to the environment and the community for many years to come. It is also a reminder of the importance of trees and the positive impact they have on our planet. As we celebrate Arbor Day, let us all take a moment to reflect on the beauty and importance of trees and commit to planting and caring for them in our communities.
