Business Impact

We would like to say a particular thank you to all of our corporate partners who have supported us over the year. Our partners have worked with us through cause-related marketing, project sponsorship, employee volunteering, donations and plenty in-between. Trees for Cities has a range of projects and our corporate partners have supported them across the board. We simply would not have been able to achieve what we have the past year without the support of all our partners.

We are not able to tell the story of every partner here, although they are all as important to us. Here are some examples of how our partners have supported us.

Associated British Ports

Associated British Ports (ABP) operate 21 ports throughout the UK. ABP partnered with Trees for Cities to plant 21,000 new urban trees in multiple coastal locations around the UK, representing their 21 ports, and supporting both our Forgotten Places initiative and in partnership with the Queen’s Green Canopy.

Hays Specialist Recruitment

Hays Specialist Recruitment partnered with Trees for Cities to plant a tree for every work placement they made. Not only that, their employees engaged in tree planting and other environmental activities in locations all over the UK.

Golden Acre Foods

Golden Acre helped us plant 14,032 urban woodland creation trees as well as enabling us to plant 243 more mature standard trees in Glasgow, Newcastle and Bexley. Standard trees are amongst the most difficult projects to gain funding for.


MOJU is unique in that they support our projects, and also commit 100% of their workforce to helping us with our work. The Planting Healthy Air in Schools MOJU contributed towards last season was visited by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan at an event celebrating the playground.

IG is a premier sponsor of our Trees in Schools programme, committing to a multiyear partnership. They have enabled us to plant trees in 8 schools, whilst also providing us with the means to develop capacity building materials that we engage the pupils and teachers with.

American Express

American Express helped us with a large project in Tower Hamlets, whilst their employees also gave their time to help with environmental projects across London and in Brighton.

British United Provident Association (BUPA)

BUPA raised funds for Trees for Cities with a Healthy Cities challenge, encouraging their employees to walk 6,000 steps a day, and matching funds raised to go to good causes. BUPA enabled us to support four schools in and around the four cities their offices are located, funding school projects best fit for each playground.


Bloomberg is Trees for Cities’ longest-standing corporate partner. They have continued to support our Planting Healthy Air in Schools programme, as well as engaging hundreds of employees to support Trees for Cities. This has included planting and caring for trees in London, as well as supporting our international work.
