Alcoa Foundation Partnership for Trees
Alcoa Foundation and American Forests Global ReLeaf are partnering on a multi-year initiative to plant hundreds of thousands of native tree species on damaged and degraded sites to engage communities and restore the health and function of natural ecosystems.
This restoration tree-planting initiative, which commenced in 2011, celebrates the 125th anniversary of the Hall-Héroult process for making aluminum and builds toward Alcoa’s goal of planting 10 million trees by 2020. The initiative supports restoration tree planting projects conducted by qualified nonprofit organizations and agencies around the world. Alcoa employees have been encouraged to partner with local nonprofit groups and agencies in developing and submitting project proposals, as well as engaging in tree planting activities.
