How Salesforce is Planting Trees

Oscon and Gracehopper 2019

OSCON is an annual conference for open source software development. Gracehopper is a yearly get together for women in computing. Salesforce tech teams take part in these events every year.

Last year, they brought Salesforce tree kits made by ForestNation to these events. More than 7000 nature loving techies picked up these trees to grow at home. And because we plant matching trees for each tree kit, we planted 7000 more trees in Tanzania.
We planted 1 more tree for everyone who named their tree on ForestNation. Here are some of the best Salesforce tree posts:

Futureforce Quiz Challenges

Every summer, Saleseforce recruits university graduates for their Futureforce internship program. All interns receive paid time off to volunteer for good causes. To make it more rewarding this year, we created a virtual challenge for the interns. For everyone who passed this challenge, we planted trees in the Salesforce forest. 7,700 trees were planted through this initiative.

Salesforce has pledged 20,000 more tree kits to plant with their team and community. These trees will get planted once offices are back to normal. We’ve started planting the matching trees in Tanzania.

100 Million Trees by 2030

Salesforce has set a goal to plant 100 million trees by 2030. This will support World Economic Forum’s Trillion Tree initiative. The Salesforce forest in Tanzania is part of this initiative.

I know planting a trillion trees sounds daunting but there used to be six trillion trees on earth, now there are three trillion trees so we should be able to get another trillion back.
