Last year, we took a pledge to plant 500,000 trees by 2030. Why? Our mission is to change the way hospitality businesses are run. So far we’ve helped some of the biggest brands streamline their working day and supercharge productivity. But we wanted to extend our impact to the planet. And help the industry on its journey to net-zero.

So how’s it going?

With the help of you, our amazing customers, we’ve planted a total of 65,000 trees, offsetting 290.06 tonnes of CO2. That’s the same as 223 long haul flights or 719,639 miles driven in a car!

We’ve also supported a range of carbon reduction projects. From helping to fund the first ever wind project in Honduras to improving the efficiency of metro transport in India to preserving the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.

See all the climate projects you have helped us support. 

None of this would’ve been possible without you. So we want to say a special thank you to some of our top tree planters: Wagamama, Craft Union, BrewDog, GAIL’s, Benugo and German Doner Kebab.

How does it work?

We partner with Ecologi, an environmental organisation based in the UK that funds reforestation projects. Each month, we plant a tree for every site using Trail. And as more seeds are planted, we reduce our impact on the planet together. It’s as simple as that.

Why tree planting?

Trees help improve water quality, preserve biodiversity, support local communities and stabilise soils to minimise the risk of natural disasters. This is why tree planting is one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5°C.

So do you want to help us achieve our goal of planting 500,000 trees?
