Meeting ReLeaf

Overview

American Forests Meeting ReLeaf is a fast, easy and affordable way for associations to offset carbon emissions from their major meetings, while also achieving significant additional environmental benefits. When you sign up for the program, American Forests will plant a tree in honor of every attendee at your meeting in a carefully chosen forest restoration project in the U.S.

This will not only help offset carbon emissions associated with the meeting, but also significantly enhance air and water quality, promote biodiversity and expand animal habitat.

Program Benefits

  • Easy – Once you sign on, American Forests will take care of all of the details. All you have to do is tell your members and reap the praise!
  • Turnkey – American Forests will provide a sample press release, ads and copy for your program guide or brochure to explain Meeting ReLeaf and your environmental commitment. A PowerPoint to be used between sessions illustrating the impact of your participation in Meeting ReLeaf will also be provided, along with talking points that can be used to describe your involvement.
  • Affordable – The program costs only one dollar per attendee for meetings of 1,000 people or more.
  • A Crowd-Pleaser – While it is great to say that your meeting is offsetting carbon, it is even better to say that you achieved this by planting a tree for every attendee, providing habitat for countless animals and clean air and water for everyone.

With Meeting ReLeaf, your investment goes far beyond reducing or eliminating your carbon footprint. You’ll also be contributing to cleaner air and water, rebuilding wildlife habitat and encouraging sustainable recreation. Download our Meeting ReLeaf flyer for more information.
