DARMSTADT, Germany —Schenck Process’s European training program planted its first tree in Erlebnisallee Darmstadt to follow through with its slogan: plant a tree, start your career. The program is designed to educate and provide training for young professionals and students.

The initiative is part of an overall campaign launched in October 2019 to donate and plant trees around the world to increase and demonstrate environmental awareness, the company said. Schenck donated more than 500 trees in early October.

The recent tree-planting event in Darmstadt was supported by Harmut Müller, head of the Forestry Office in Darmstadt, Annerose Stambke and the Europe training team at Schenck. The company and forestry staff are encouraging others to plant trees in Darmstadt going forward.
