Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) employees from the Generation and Transmission Department planted a tree in Ofer Forest on the Carmel in honor of having won the CEO’s environment prize. “It’s nice that we can take part in caring for the KKL-JNF forests on the Carmel as part of our work for the environment,” said the director of the department, Ron Weiss, at the ceremony that took place there.


The ceremony was held at the donor recognition site in Ofer Forest, which was created by KKL-JNF in gratitude to the many friends of KKL-JNF in Israel and abroad, who helped with the rehabilitation of the Carmel after the disastrous 2010 forest fire. The new grove was dedicated to the winners of the CEO’s Environment Contest, which is held annually by the IEC. Every year, a grove is planted in honor of the winners in one of KKL-JNF's forests all over Israel.

The event was emceed by KKL-JNF Israel Fundraising Director, Michael Ben Abu, who stressed the importance of the ongoing cooperation between KKL-JNF and IEC. He highlighted the development of Hagit Forest by IEC customers. Hagit Forest is dedicated to customers who have opted for receiving their electricity bills by electronic mail, which saves trees that would be felled for paper. The forest is located near the green Hagit power station, which produces energy using natural gas. Development of the forest includes footpaths, bicycle trails, a recreation area and picnic sites.
