We Are CarltonOne

Our goal: make work mean more Our mission: fund climate change eco-action

We believe that our mission & goal are directly connected, and we’ve designed a unique business model that converts member actions on our platforms directly into climate change funding. It’s being applied now across all our products, across all our markets. We are also making a difference internally with robust employee recognition and loyalty rewards programs. Contact our team today to learn more.

We See Responsibility As An Opportunity

At CarltonOne, we’ve committed ourselves to intentional, sustainable, and strategic actions that support our fundamental concern about impending climate change. We’re not about using the environment to garner simple donations or generate corporate goodwill. Our employee recognition services include employee appreciation and loyalty programs.

We see responsibility as an opportunity.

We have the reach, the capability, the passion (and now) the business model to do something to help our environment. We believe that it is this clarity of purpose that helps us attract both exceptional talent and exceptional clients. Working with extraordinary people makes it easy to create employee recognition services. Our appreciation and loyalty programs make an actual impact too.

100 Million Trees by the end of 2022

Today, we’re planting a new tree every 6 seconds - with a goal this year of 10 million trees, and 100 million trees every year by the end of 2022.

We have engaged Eden Reforestation Projects as our first tree planting partner. Founded in 2004, Eden Reforestation Projects is recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation partners on the planet.

When we plant trees, we’re also growing communities. Eden Reforestation Projects targets high-priority sites suffering from deforestation and severe poverty. Our direct funding is being used to plant in Madagascar, Nepal, Kenya, Indonesia and Mozambique.

6,621,635 Trees Funded

Our Impact is Already Growing

Madagascar

In Madagascar, our funding for mangrove planting has created 106 full-time jobs in the local Mahajanga community. We have planted 3.66 million mangroves in the Betsiboka region this year. This critical employment has enabled villagers in this area to become more independent, and be less vulnerable to exploitation by a local gang who cut down mangroves and bake them to form valuable charcoal.

Nepal

In the shadow of Mt.Everest in Nepal we have planted 350,000 new native trees to help stabilize the soil against frequent mudslides. Our project there provides steady employment to local communities that previously would not have had any income. We’re proud to help provide enough income stability to spark new women-led microbusinesses.

Mozambique

In the southeast African country of Mozambique we have funded the planting of 879,441 new mangroves on the shores of the Rio Tembe river. This mangrove reforestation project addresses not just the environmental needs along the Rio Tembe river, but also the urgent humanitarian needs of the local community. Our planting partner is now able to provide 84 days a month of regular work to many local poverty-stricken families.

Ready to Start Making a Difference?

These are just 3 examples of the projects we have underway. Tree planting, and the ongoing nurturing and protection of new forests, brings local villagers critical jobs, food security, social empowerment and a reliable income. We’ve been able to fund nearly 13,000 workdays of local employment in the countries our planting projects are operating.

Growing Our Mission Beyond Trees

We have made a major 5-year commitment to The Sierra Club, to protect the summer whale calving waters in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

We have a zero-waste, zero-paper, zero-plastic policy in corporate offices. Even pre-pandemic, we restricted corporate travel and encouraged commute-free remote work.

We have funded an urban beehive colony of 22,500 bees on a nature reserve beside our office.

Reducing Carbon is Not Enough

We weigh the ecological responsibility of our international scope, and have intentionally structured our solutions to minimize the carbon footprint of our operations.

This is both climate-positive and our competitive advantage. We procure and fulfill locally in every possible market, reducing shipping costs, delivery times and CO2 emissions. However, reducing carbon emissions is not enough.

Increasing carbon sequestration, or removing greenhouse gas from the atmosphere, is critical to stabilizing rising temperatures. And while the science of climate change is complex, the solution is remarkably simple.

This is Our Purpose

We inspire millions of employees around the globe every day, so we understand more than most companies the opportunity for positive global change that our products and community of members can create.

We believe we have the global capability to make a significant impact. How? Our products can fund the planting of hundreds of millions of trees, removing billions of pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Together, we can support ecosystem conservation and species protection. We can bring hope and livelihoods for families less fortunate than ours. This is our purpose.
