Spain (2019) | Oiltanking Social Activity
Wildlife Conservation and Renaturation Actions as Part of the Agenda of the Oiltanking Annual Conference
For three years now, the so-called “Social Activity” has been an established part of Oiltanking's annual conference, offering a welcome change from the busy conference program. In 2019, about one hundred international employees devoted their time to a charitable activity – this time for the benefit of the environment: Located near the conference venue in Girona is the coastal nature reserve “El Montgrí, les Illes Medes i el Baix Ter” with wetlands and dunes and the nature reserve “La Gola del Ter”. Here, the employees cleared the beautiful landscape of rubbish, extracted invasive plant species, planted native ones instead and built nesting boxes for birds as well as bats. The afternoon work not only benefited the environment, but also strengthened the team spirit of the group.
