One Partnership
Many Possibilities

Why Partner?

American Forests has been protecting and restoring forests for more than 140 years. And, while we may be the oldest national conservation organization, our work today is more important than ever. And corporate partners have played a vital role in making this work possible. Our partnerships are:

Impactful

Our work impacts people, wildlife, water, climate and the overall health of the planet. An example of our impact is the work American Forests has been doing to restore habitat for the endangered Kirtland’s warbler over the last 25 years, planting nearly 4 million trees. Since then, their population has rebounded from just 200 to nearly 4,000. Join us and be a part of success stories like these!

See how our work aligns with 10 different Sustainable Development Goals.

Marketable

Our work is easily translated into messages that your customers and audiences will understand and support. From cause marketing efforts like an Earth Day campaign to add-a-dollar at checkout options, we will work closely with you on the most effective ways to market our work together.

Nonpartisan

Everybody loves trees! 55 percent of global online consumers across 60 countries say they are willing to pay more for products and services provided by companies that are committed to positive social and environmental impact. Sodo employees. 51 percent won’t work for a company that doesn’t have strong social and environmental commitments and 74 percent say their job is more fulfilling when they are provided opportunities to make a positive impact at work (Nielsen 2014 Global Survey).
