In line with its commitment to serve the community, Bahrain Airport Services (BAS) announced its support for the second phase of the national afforestation campaign “Forever Green”. The campaign is being implemented under the patronage of HRH Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, Wife of HM the King, President of the Supreme Council for Women (SCW), President of the NIAD Consultative Council. A number of representatives from BAS took part in a tree planting ceremony held on 4th of January 2023, on Hatim Al Taie Avenue in Hidd. The initiative comes as part of the BAS’ ongoing sustainability and volunteerism initiatives.

Through this initiative, BAS plays an active role in strengthening community partnerships between the private and public sectors to conserve the environment and uphold the sustainability of Bahrain’s agricultural resources. The collaboration will also instil eco-friendly values and sustainability practices, increase environmental awareness, and encourage community engagement.

The National Initiative for Agricultural Development (NIAD) aligns with the Kingdom’s directives to expand green areas and plant trees that are suitable for Bahrain’s natural climate, with the aim of reducing carbon emissions and limiting the impacts of climate change. The first phase of the campaign resulted in the planting of approximately 50,000 trees
