We’re thrilled our Endava Thank You Forest project has been awarded CSR Project of the Year at 2022 ANIS Awards in Romania. We partnered with Planting Good Deeds, an NGO that focuses on protecting and expanding the forests in Romania, through various tree planting initiatives that involve volunteers.
Our project includes now tree planting activities in various countries, engaging around 300 Endava volunteers. Involving our people enables us to increase and multiply the impact by raising awareness and active involvement.
Endava Thank You Forest, our tree planting project kicked off with our initial commitment to plant 30,000 trees and we plan to keep growing it. The project is designed to engage our people in climate action, and it is connected to our internal recognition programme. For each e-Thank-You card our colleagues send internally to each other, sharing their gratitude, we are planting a tree.
Since we launched in November 2021 our Gratitude Grows | Endava Thank You Forest campaign we had a great response, with over 20% of Endavans sending e-Thank You messages in the first 48h of the campaign. Additionally, to celebrate our 10,000 people milestone, we have planted a tree for each Endavan, as a thank you for being part of our story and helping us reimagine the way technology impacts the lives of millions.
We also took this initiative beyond Endava. We joined the NYSE Global Giving Campaign with this tree planting project and invited everyone to send a thank you. For each e-Thank You card sent through the thankyouforest.com platform, we are planting one tree up to 10,000 trees.
Encouraged by the positive impact of the project, we are keen to develop it further and we are already expanding it in other countries where we have a presence.
