Our purpose is to help organizations make confident decisions, powered by mathematical optimization, for a more sustainable world. To further our purpose, we also support reforestation projects around the world through our partner, One Tree Planted. Our goal is to plant at least 500 trees per year. You can contribute to our forest in several ways.

AIMMS and One Tree Planted

One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization based in Shelburne, Vermont. One Tree Planted drives global reforestation by working with awesome partners across 43 countries to get trees in the ground. These projects restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for wildlife.

Over 300 Trees Planted in the Amazon Rainforest – Sustainable Agroforestry

With the world’s largest rainforest ecosystem, the Amazon Rainforest spans 9 countries and is home to iconic species like the Jaguar, Macaw, Amazon River Dolphin, Black Spider Monkey, and Poison Dart Frog. By holding an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, its forests play a critical role in the fight against climate change. Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, it’s also a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation. This tree planting project will help protect the Amazon’s biodiverse primary forests and restore degraded land.

BC reforestation project

Over 300 Trees Planted in British Columbia – Yunesit’in Fire Guard Rehabilitation

This project’s objective is to rehabilitate fireguards within and around the Yunesit’in Indian Reserve in the Chilcotin Region of British Columbia. The project aimms to plant 107,480 native aspen trees. Fireguards provided protection to the Yunesit’in community during the 2017 Hanceville fire. Rehabilitating the fireguards surrounding the Yunesit’in community will sequester carbon, promote biodiversity, improve wildlife habitat, and provide long-term enhanced fire protection to the Yunesit’in community. Planting prescriptions will use Climate Based Seed Transfer (CBST), which will ensure the resilience of the seedlings to future climate.
