Ant Forest, a green and low-carbon afforestation program launched by China's top e-payment app Alipay in 2016, has become popular all over the country.
Inspired by China's Alipay Ant Forest initiative for a greener planet, the Philippines leading mobile wallet, GCash, is introducing a new green feature on the app called GCash Forest.
Alipay released its second sustainability report on May 20 in Beijing. The report is titled “Moving towards a better society for the future”, and lists the company's initiatives and achievements from 2017 and 2018 that had positive social impacts.
In April, Pandaily went to Ordos, China with Ant Forest and its users, to participate in a green movement involving 300 million people — Ant Forest. Ant Forest is a special feature of Alipay, a payment app and platform under Ant Financial, that was created as a social corporate responsibility (SCR) project.
How many netizens will reduce their carbon footprint with Ant Forest to plant real trees? Alipay is serious about this ecological undertaking.
