American Express EMPLOYEES took part in a science day as part of an environmental initiative.

Planted at East Lancing Recreational Ground in March 2021, the Lancing Tiny Forest is the first on the South Shore.

It has an outdoor teaching area that can be used by both local schools and community members.

Throughout the day, 38 Amex colleagues collected data to assess how forest age, species composition, forest design and geography affect four areas:

  • Flood Management: Monitor soil moisture, compaction, texture and color
  • Thermal Comfort: Air temperature, humidity and wind speed monitoring
  • Carbon Capture: Monitor tree species, height, diameter and mortality
  • Biodiversity: Monitoring butterflies, pollinators and soil dwellers

The Argos:

In April, American Express announced a series of grants to support nature-based solutions and sustainability efforts around the world.

Earthwatch received approximately £110,000 in grants to fund the planting of several hundred trees in the UK to mitigate the effects of climate change and improve biodiversity. American Express colleagues volunteer with Earthwatch Tiny Forest, Lancing
