Rebuilding the Planet
This Earth Day, we’re delighted to announce our partnership with Perkbox, a global employee benefit & rewards platform. Perkbox have a global reach of over 4500 businesses and 600k + users in over 34 countries.
Environmental action is fast-becoming a mainstay of company culture around the world. With our partnership, Furthr and Perkbox are here to help employees and companies across the globe make a tangible, positive difference for our planet each and every day. How? Through enabling each employee to redeem their Flexi Perks across Furthr’s climate positive subscription: planting protected trees, fast-tracking critical renewable energy solutions, as well as reducing their emissions through Furthr’s personal green living engine.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Perkbox & Furthr without some exciting rewards: each of our Perkbox users also get the chance to win monthly Tree-wards: eco experiences, planet-positive products, cash & much more - with all prizes exchangeable for more trees planted!
Our partnership allows each employee to use their Flexi Perks to chip in towards planting 1 million trees together over the coming year.
Some Projects We're Sponsoring Together
More than 90% of Madagascar's original forest cover has been destroyed due to human activity, displacing entire animal species and significantly reducing water quality. We're helping combat this by planting protected trees each day, and providing paid work for local communities in the process.
Nuetech Solar Water Heating
India is the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases worldwide after China & the Us, with coal still meeting a whopping 80% of the nation's energy demand. Evopure is tackling this issue at a household level, helping to provide homes & buildings across India with innovative solar cells to heat water directly from the sun.
Mozambique loses over 1000 football fields' worth of forest every day, with 45% of the population living below the poverty line and relying on biodiversity for survival. We're planting trees across 30+ coastal Mozambiquan mangrove sites, whilst providing fair wage employment for communities local to the projects.
Over 72,000,000 people in Tamil Nadu breathe toxic air that does not meet WHO's clean air guidelines. Our Nammakal Biogas plant tackles this through turning chicken manure & press wood into clean electricity & organic fertiliser.
From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. However, the management of its biodiversity has been unsustainable, with the nation having lost over half of its forests in recent decades. We're planting trees each month across two distinct region: the Great Rift Valley and the North Coast.
