Impact Stories

In June 2011 hundreds of Ogilvy Beijing staff celebrated the centennial birthday of our founder David Ogilvy and the agency's 20th anniversary in China by rolling up their sleeves to plant hundreds of trees in the suburbs of Beijing. The volunteering effort was pioneered by GR:O, Ogilvy China's internal sustainability program, and was created in partnership with the Huairou Greening Office, a branch of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Parks and Forestry, as part of a wider environmental effort to prevent the sandstorms that plague northwestern China every spring.
