Visionary Afforestation: MillionOaks as a Corporate Game-Changer

In response to escalating environmental challenges, Hasar Partners introduces MillionOaks, an innovative afforestation initiative transforming Iraq’s urban landscapes. Beyond a mere response, MillionOaks is a resilient, forward-thinking solution for environmental sustainability. Led by Hasar Partners, this project transcends traditional afforestation efforts, evolving into a scalable urban reforestation model. We’ve already planted 315,000 trees, setting a solid foundation for our next goal: planting an additional 700,000 trees.

Our pilot projects have provided valuable insights, enhancing our scalability and impact for the upcoming phases. With a focus on native species, primarily “Quercus brantii lind,” and complemented by diverse species for ecological balance, MillionOaks is a vibrant model of innovation and sustainable development.

We’re actively assessing land opportunities offered by authorities, aiming to select those that meet our sustainability criteria. We also invite impact investors to engage with us in Carbon Sequestration Impact, Biodiversity, and Sustainable Development Goals, leveraging our initiative for global environmental benefits.

There are three main objectives in this project;

  • Implementing large-scale afforestation to significantly enhance green cover.

  • Cultivating and nurturing a widespread culture of tree-planting among communities.

  • Restoring natural forests and expanding green spaces for ecological balance and sustainability. effects of climate change.
