As part of our ongoing initiative to give back to the communities where we live and work, DraftKings S.E.R.V.E.S (Service, Equity, Responsibility, Vitality, Environment, Sports) is proud to share the recent success of our employee volunteer tree planting projects.
Together with the Arbor Day Foundation, our team was able to make a substantial impact on important real-world issues like biodiversity, mitigating against pollution, improving water quality and increasing tree canopies to support community development. Trees play a vital role in creating healthier, safer, and more connected communities, and we’re proud of the impact that our employees have made in communities around the world.
Through our multi-year commitment with the Arbor Day Foundation, DraftKings has planted over 1 million trees around the world through large-scale reforestation planting, resulting in nearly 3,500 acres restored. This September we embarked on a journey to bring our employees together for this initiative and over the course of 10 weeks, 250 DraftKings employees came together across seven cities around the world to plant over 750 trees. These events have allowed our employees to connect with their colleagues outside of the office, while supporting the creation of a greener and more sustainable future for the communities where we live and work.
