Accedia Forest: Rooting for a Greener Future

Last Saturday, June 3rd, around 50 volunteers from Accedia left their mark on the planet. For the first of a series of volunteering events, they planted around 240 spruce saplings on the 2-decares terrain in Vitosha mountain near Aleko hut. The number of trees planted is not accidental – it corresponds to the approximate number of people in the company.

Nikolay Mutafov, CEO of the company, shares more about the idea: “I am personally interested in deforestation issues and their impact on the planet. In the first months of the war in Ukraine, we helped Foundation with voluntary renovation work and material donations. Inspired by their main cause to create new forests, I came up with the idea to plant our own Accedia Forest. That way, we make our small contribution to the cause and unite our people around something meaningful. In the beginning I envisioned a forest with as many trees as people have been part of Accedia that we can expand as our team grows. Who knows, we might reach that number at some point.”

Under the supervision of experienced foresters from the State Forestry Administration – Sofia and with the organizational support of the Bulgarian Environmental Partnership Foundation (Fondaciya EkoObshtnost) team, Accedia people and their friends and families have worked tirelessly to prepare the weedgrown soil by digging over, forming pits, and sowing saplings.

They have committed to cultivating Accedia Forest and making sure it grows into a beautiful forest for recreational activities.
