Since 2016, Hyundai has been carrying out the IONIQ Forest project together with Tree Planet and SUDOKWON Landfill Site Management Corp. The project involves planting trees to reduce fine dust at the Incheon metropolitan landfill site. The IONIQ Forest project aims to create ‘fine dust-preventing forests’ by planting over 30,000 trees by 2020 together with forest-building experts, IONIQ customers, and
participants of the IONIQ Longest Run.
In 2018, 1,000 trees were planted in April by tree-planting volunteers. In addition, volunteers and 200 customers who participated in the IONIQ Longest Run together planted 2,000 zelkova and pine trees in November. Including an additional 5,000 trees planted by forest experts, a total of 8,000 trees were planted during the year. As of April 2019, a total of 15,250 trees have been planted through the IONIQ Forest project.
