Introducing Picture Proof of Planting

In 2023, FedEx launched Picture Proof of Planting to engage team members in conservation efforts worldwide. Over 300 employees participated in tree plantings across various cities, addressing urban heat, promoting health, and restoring ecosystems. FedEx is investing over $2 million in 50 urban conservation projects with One Tree Planted, Arbor Day Foundation, and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through May 2024.

Canada: FedEx Montreal, in collaboration with GRAME and One Tree Planted, launched the 2023 Picture Proof of Planting campaign at Paul-Jarry primary school. By removing asphalt and planting trees, the project enhanced the area’s aesthetics, diversity, and water management.

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

Singapore: FedEx worked 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 enhancing urban environments and building resilience against climate change.

Turkey: FedEx Istanbul organized its first tree planting activity with the Arbor Day Foundation and Aegean Forest Foundation. Volunteers planted 41 trees, and FedEx funded 7,000 more saplings. This initiative boosts sustainability and supports socioeconomic 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. Collaborating with the Arbor Day Foundation and Arbocity, the project aims to revive the degraded area, fostering social and environmental well-being.

It was a feeling of freedom, friendship, solidarity and commitment to take care of our planet thanks to FedEx Cares.
