salesforce event tree kits

Salesforce Engineering is excited to bring Forest Nation Tree Kits to our conferences and events. We want to create our events with zero waste in mind and this begins with our giveaways.

Our CEO, Marc Benioff, has said that “The business of business is improving the state of the world.” We hope that by having zero-waste swag we will continue to improve the world. With two trees planted for every one seed we purchase, we are excited to see the difference the Salesforce Forest will make in Tanzania.

At Salesforce, we consider the environment to be a key stakeholder and we are committed to harnessing our culture of innovation to improve the state of the world. We leverage the power of our people and our products to reduce the impact that we and our customers have on the planet. Salesforce achieved net-zero greenhouse gas emissions globally and delivers customers a carbon neutral cloud.

* Vision: We’re committed to a sustainable future for all
* Clean Cloud: Delivering an environmentally-friendly customer success platform
* Operations: Integrating sustainability into everything that we do
* People: Leveraging our employees to create a greener world

You Plant We Plant Impact

We plant matching trees for every Tree growing kit that companies give to their community, teams or customers. Our nurseries in developing countries like Tanzania plant and take care of these trees as they grow into a forest. We also plant more when people name their Trees on ForestNation.

For every 1000 matching trees ‘We Plant’:

  • 25 tons harmful Carbon Dioxide is offset per year
  • 100 tons of Oxygen is created per year
  • 40 hours of employment is guaranteed for local people
  • 1 hectare of degraded land is reforested

For every 1000 Trees ‘You Plant’:

  • 1000 people are connected to nature
  • 8 hours of work created for our Tree kit makers

We use locally harvested tree seeds in each Tree kit, so people can nurture home grown trees. Each kit is handmade with love by local Tree experts. Every element of the Tree kit is either compostable of biodegradable, leaving zero waste behind.

A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide per year. That translates to 25 tons of CO2 absorbed per year for 1000 trees. To put this in perspective, around 25 tons of CO2 is emitted per year by 5 passenger vehicles.

Please note that the CO2 aborption per year is a weighted average. This is because trees have low CO2 absorbing capacity in their early years, peaking as they gain maturity and then slowing down as they grow older.

You can learn more about the calculations here.

On average trees produce 4 to 5 times the amount of co2 they sequester each year depending on the species. So we are basing our CO2 number as a conservative estimate at 4 times.

We plant 1000 trees per hectare as a general standard of reforestation and agroforestry practices. This allows for adequate space for the trees to grow naturally as part of the forest.

It takes 68 hours for 1 person to create 10000 tree seedlings. Then approximately 1 hour per day to maintain every 1000 seedlings.

All this translates 40 hours of work created at our nurseries for every 1000 trees.
