- Offer a Payroll Program to employees, with no cost to the company, to plant a grove of 10 trees a month. The employees can “bank” their trees in their accounts and send out tree-dedication e-certificates with their personal message to friends on birthdays, anniversaries, New Year, etc. The company can share in this cost, if it so desires, and have its logo put on the certificate. This would invite employee participation, reach out to potential customers through employees’ greetings, contribute to CSR, and visibly enhance the company’s green image.
