CENTENNIAL, Colo., May 2, 2022 /CSRwire/ - In honor of Earth Day, employees at Arrow Electronics’ global headquarters gathered to plant and stake trees at Berkeley Lake Park in Denver. Nearly 40 trees were planted as part of Denver Parks and Recreation’s Game Plan for a Healthy City.
Planting trees helps to make a positive impact on the planet by absorbing carbon and helping to reduce the heat island effect. Collectively, Arrow employees contributed over 200 hours to the project. Through Arrow’s Dollar for Doers program, the volunteers also generated matching funds for Denver Parks Trust, which is committed to helping achieve Denver’s vision of a more equitable and sustainable park system.
“This project serves as a great example of how our employees can help mitigate climate change by expanding critical green spaces and giving back to our community,” said Lindsay Tyson, Arrow’s director of sustainability.
Planting trees is one way that Arrow’s employees are working to make the world a little greener. In Arrow’s inaugural ESG report, the company announced a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve environmental certifications for its largest North American distribution center.
