The primary aim of Travel4Green (T4G) PNG establishment is to sustain the forests while minimizing the impact of the carbon footprint on our environment.

In this way you are helping to fight global climate change. As trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees also provide many benefits to us, every day.
Fiji’s Permanent Secretary for Forests, Pene Baleinabuli at the REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries) Environmental Stewardship Inter-Faith Based Organization Leaders Awareness Forum at the Pacific Regional Seminary in Suva said “The aim for Fiji is to plant 4 million trees in four years, to get the communities involved and actively engage with them and the Ministry of Forests wants to establish nurseries around the country where we will invite members of the community to look after them.”
The objective is to create awareness of Fiji's National REDD+ Program amongst the interfaith based organizational leaders.
