DraftKings believes that in order to be successful, they have to be successful in all areas. In order to give back to the community, the company launched DraftKings S.E.R.V.E.S., a program that is dedicated to creating a better world.
DraftKings is committed to addressing global sustainable development challenges, including climate change, and strives to make an impact on our communities locally and around the world. In collaboration with Gisele Bündchen, our Special Advisor to the CEO and Board for ESG Initiatives, as well as the Arbor Day Foundation, we made a commitment to fund and plant one million trees to better the world we live in.
On behalf of DraftKings S.E.R.V.E.S., we are proud to announce that we have achieved our goal with tree planting projects taking place across 14 U.S. states and 8 international countries in efforts to help clean our water, purify our air, and sequester carbon, among so much more.
DraftKings has also launched an earth-themed FTP pool in honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day to engage with our communities and celebrate our planet!
