ONE MILLION TREES, EVERY YEAR SINCE 2006.
In 2006, we made a commitment to plant 50 million trees in national forests over the course of 50 years. That means 1 million trees, every year, planted across the United States, Canada and Europe. In 2015, we're happy to report that we're right on track, reaching 10 million trees planted by the end of this year.

What Drives Us
OUR VISION IS 20/20
Starting in 2010, we committed to a five-year plan to cut both our energy use and energy costs by 20%.
ABOVE, BEYOND AND BELOW
OUR BRANCHES LOOK BEYOND THE FLEET TO REDUCE ENERGY IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE WAY.
Reduced energy use in one branch by more than 40 percent during the summer months by implementing a heat-reflective window tint and more energy-efficient lighting.
Tracking energy use with new and existing tools helped to identify the group’s largest area of opportunity: energy. Installing new LED lighting at several locations reduced energy consumption by more than 35%.
Installing new pressure washers helped reduce water use by 40% compared to the previous year.
EAST MIDLANDS, ENGLAND
Replacing lighting internally and externally and adding timers and light sensors is expected to reduce energy use by more than 30%.
Updating lighting fixtures to LEDs, installing more efficient pressure washers and engaging employees in small everyday changes helped reduce water use by nearly 25% and netted more than $140,000 in savings.
