Nesbitt Hazelman said the federation had about 500 members and every member is supposed to plant trees in their free time.
The Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation officially launched the Global Employers Climate Action Forum on Friday.
The programme was followed by a tree planting exercise in a bid to help offset the carbon footprint.
There were 15 participants who took part in the event.
Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation (FCEF) chief executive officer Nesbitt Hazelman said the federation had about 500 members and every member was supposed to plant trees in their free time.
“Planting trees is to reduce carbon emission from all our delegates flying from overseas, so when they are flying by air, airlines release carbon into atmosphere,” he said.
“After estimating the amount of carbon that will be emitted, we plant trees to neutralise the carbon emission.
