Environmental Team-Building to Boost Employee Engagement

Fitness for good: Connecting employee engagement with environmental impact

Almost every day, a new report, piece of research, or environmental disaster proves that our planet is in crisis. And in light of this, taking action and implementing environmental initiatives has become a business imperative. In addition, more and more companies are realizing that including their employees in such initiatives improves job satisfaction and creates additional impact.

Together with atlasGO, we're able to create initiatives that help companies improve the health and wellbeing of their employees, while also making a positive impact for the planet.

Our partnership💚

We've been working with atlasGO for several years now! They're a digital community engagement platform that brings people together around impact and well-being. They focus on organizing corporate team-building to strengthen employee health, engagement, and culture.

Together, we've combined our strengths to allow corporations to organize what we call environmental team-building.

As mentioned above, more and more companies are looking for ways to involve employees in their environmental actions. In turn, employees are also asking employers to be active for the climate. With atlasGO, we're connecting the dots.

Because trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity, planting trees with the help of employees is one of the best ways to take a corporate environmental strategy to the next level.

How does virtual environmental team-building work?

Unite your employees around a common goal: the fight against climate change, either in-person or virtually, and make a difference that will last for generations to come. Here's how it works:

  • 📲 Employees, wherever they are, can convert their daily activities into planted trees on the atlasGO app. 
  • 🤸🏼‍♀️ Hundreds of activities are available. Companies can choose to motivate their employees to move and take care of themselves with activities such as running, yoga, meditation, taking a nap, swimming or even cycling. But they can also choose to promote environmentally friendly activities such as recycling waste, eating a vegetarian meal, donating old clothes or buying seasonal products. Anything goes! 
  • 🗣 Build awareness. This kind of team-building can also be used to inform your employees on how to improve their well-being or on how to level up their sustainability habits.
  • 🤝 It's a great way to strengthen company culture and team spirit by connecting with colleagues, sharing fun pictures, supporting each other, and uniting around a common goal. 
  • 🌳 You can customize your campaign further by choosing the project you want to support and the number of trees you want to plant.

Plant Trees Where They're Needed Most

As the need for reforestation is global and ever-changing, we feature where trees are most needed now. Today, we're raising funds to jumpstart forest fire recovery in British Columbia. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Restore landscapes damaged by a historic season of wildfires
  • Create habitat for iconic biodiversity like the moose and grizzly bear
  • Support old-growth management areas to maintain complex ecosystems
  • This reforestation initiative is helping to restore the landscape in British Columbia after the Hanceville fire burned over 590,000 acres in 2017 and natural regeneration has not occurred. The fire has impacted the forest, soils, riparian ecosystems, wildlife, and water quality. Local indigenous communities have seen their ability to hunt and gather food drastically altered. But your support will go a long way! The goal of planting trees here is to not only re-establish a healthy forest, but also to plant species that will be resilient in the face of climate change. Thank you so much for your support of healthy forests! 🌲
  • Planting trees will catalyze the process of returning the area to a forested state. Newly planted trees will begin the process of sequestering atmospheric carbon, and over time improve the hydrological benefits of the forest. The ecosystems that have been greatly simplified by extreme fire conditions will once again become complex ecosystems, This project will also create habitat for many local wildlife species including mule deer, moose, black and grizzly bear, wolves, sandhill cranes, various raptors, songbirds, and small mammals.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • B.C.'s rich forest diversity includes more than 40 different species of native trees, with some of Canada’s most interesting and valuable tree species. In this project, we made efforts to maximize species diversity, including the following species: Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, hybrid spruce, ponderosa pine, trembling aspen.
