By 2025, Quest Global plans to plant 500,000 trees around the world. As Quest Global celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the company is commemorating its dedication to environmental sustainability by planting 25 trees for each of its employees. The activities will begin on World Environment Day, June 5, 2022.
The Quest Worldwide Pledge is based on a multi-year cooperation with One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to global reforestation and positive social effect. The organization will make sure that 500,000 trees are planted and that they are native to their locations. They will also make sure that the trees are cared for and watched over over time.
The initiative will be divided into three phases, with the first beginning on World Environment Day on June 5 and ending on Earth Day in 2023.
It's simple. To make the planet habitable for future generations, preserving and expanding our forest cover is critical. We are in the business of engineering, but what we are really building is a brighter future. The Quest Global Pledge is our way of building a brighter future - by creating an environmental imprint that lasts for generations to come. And our association with One Tree Planted is just the beginning of this meaningful journey."

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is celebrating its golden jubilee while it celebrates its silver jubilee. According to the organization, the coincidence of these anniversaries is a sign of hope.
So, Quest Global started its pledge on World Environment Day, which is a day set up by the United Nations Environment Programme to raise awareness and push for real environmental change.
The Quest Global Pledge is associated with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #15 Life on Land, reflecting the organization's commitment to do their bit in attaining environmental sustainability. The purpose is to maintain, restore, and promote the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, as well as to manage forests in a sustainable manner.
