FedEx Corp. supported CI's environmental projects in China by donating $600,000 to CI to run ten community conservation projects in China’s Sichuan Province to assist in the survival of one of the region’s most well-known natives - the giant panda. The projects also supported reforestation in Sichuan Province, which was severely impacted by a major earthquake in 2008, and raise environmental awareness through programs designed to empower FedEx employees to share the importance of a balanced ecosystem with their community.
The employee environmental outreach program was developed by CI for FedEx so that employees can share knowledge about the environment in their communities. The training helped employees, and in turn their communities, understand how reforestation efforts (like planting native plant species such as bamboo – the panda’s primary food source) are helping to lower global carbon emissions and are leading to more sustainable forestry practices.
