The initiative was held within the framework of the third annual meeting of the team of MSD Bulgaria, which passed under the slogan "Plant the seeds, create a future". The ambition of the team is to make the afforestation a tradition to achieve a permanent increase of the green areas on the territory of Bulgaria.

In 2016, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the company's creation, employees donated over 125,000 hours of voluntary work for the benefit of society and nature.

„Volunteerism and giving back to society is in our DNA. We believe that companies have a responsibility to use resources rationally and to stimulate innovation that will allow global development while protecting both the planet and the communities in which we live and work“,
