The campaign, which is also supported by multiple members of the Berkshire Hathaway Sustainability Leadership Council, is a forest restoration effort with an end goal of planting a billion trees. Shaw said its donation represents the company’s commitment to supporting organizations that are making efforts to increase the health and well-being of the planet.

“Trees contribute so many benefits to both people and nature, like providing clean air to breathe and helping regulate the earth’s climate,” explained The Nature Conservancy. “Shaw is one of several Berkshire Hathaway Sustainability Leadership Council members that is supporting nature this Earth Day, with a total impact of 15,000 trees planted.”

For its part, Shaw pledged a donation that is said to result in the planting of 1,250 trees all around the world, including the U.S., Mexico, China and Columbia. Shaw said its hope is to provide an easy way for others to help make a bigger impact, including an associate awareness campaign and opportunities for Shaw to match associate donations.

Shaw said it welcomes its customers and other partners to help support the planet through personal donations to the campaign. Donations will start at $10, which the company indicated should plant five trees and provide numerous benefits to people and the planet.

“The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign aligns with our sustain[HUMAN]ability philosophy and understanding of the systemic connections between people and the planet,” said Kellie Ballew, Shaw’s vice president of global sustainability. “We’re proud to support the campaign as part of our mission to create a better future, both in our communities and across the globe.”
