THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT – This year on Earth Day, six weeks into the COVID-19 quarantine and lockdown, Michael Ziman, president and CEO of New Jersey–based Ziman Development, witnessed satellite photos of the Himalayan Mountains taken from over 100 miles away. The site had not been viewed from that distance in over 30 years due to smog and pollution, and Ziman walked away inspired to help the environment and become carbon neutral in his business.
With the aim of planting 10 million trees by the end of 2021, Ziman invites all builders and construction companies to join the campaign. Those who make the pledge will receive a certificate acknowledging their commitment, as well as publicity on the One Tree Pledge website. Builders can sign the pledge or learn more by visiting www.onetreepledge.org.
