In 2023, FedEx launched Picture Proof of Planting to engage team members in environmental stewardship efforts around the world. More than 300 employees participated in tree plantings in cities to address urban heat, promote health and restore ecosystems. FedEx is investing more than $2 million in 50 urban conservation projects with One Tree Planted, Arbor Day Foundation and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through May 2024.

Canada: FedEx Montreal, in partnership with GRAME and One Tree Planted, launched the 2023 Picture Proof of Planting campaign at Paul-Jarry Elementary School. By removing asphalt and planting trees, the project improved the aesthetics, diversity and water management of the area.

Columbia: FedEx team members joined Fundación Red de Árboles to plant native trees along the Rionegro River near the Medellín airport. Volunteers planted 140 trees, contributing to water conservation, urban cooling and community well-being in the Antioquia region.

Singapore: FedEx partnered with The Arbor Day Foundation and Garden City Fund to plant 80 trees in Singapore. This project contributes to Singapore’s OneMillionTrees movement, dedicated to improving urban environments and building resilience to climate change.

Turkey: FedEx Istanbul organized its first tree-planting event with Arbor Day Foundation and Aegean Forest Foundation. Volunteers planted 41 trees, and FedEx funded 7,000 more seedlings. The initiative increases sustainability and supports socio-economic development by employing local villagers – mostly women – to maintain the trees for the next three years to ensure their survival.

Spain: FedEx team members gathered near Madrid to help plant 600 trees, shrubs and plants along the Arroyo Meaques River. Working with the Arbor Day Foundation and Arbocity, the project aims to revitalize the degraded area, supporting social and environmental well-being.

Thanks to FedEx Cares, we could feel freedom, friendship, solidarity and commitment to caring for our planet.
