2024 Earth Day on April 22

Earth Day brings people together to protect the precious earth we live on. Greenfleet supporters are longtime proponents of taking action to protect our earth, and the plants and animals that need our help.

Earth Day 2024 is a chance to reflect on our 26 years of climate action, how far we have come and how much there is still to do.

What Is Earth Day?

Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of this environmental movement, started in the USA in 1970. It began as public rallies against pollution, the loss of wilderness and the extinction of wildlife. It continues to unite political parties and people from diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic groups pushing for better environmental outcomes.

In 2016, April 22 was also the date chosen for the signing of the Paris Agreement, where 175 world leaders recognising Earth Day as a significant marker of the climate and environmental movement. Earth Month became a month-long extension of Earth Day, much-need to raise awareness and advocate for change on the major climate issues affecting our planet.

Greenfleet is passionate about protecting our planet, and since 1997, we have planted more than 10.8 million trees, restored 10,950 hectares to native ecosystem and created over 550 native forests. We will continue to legally protect these forests for up to 100 years, and as they grow, they will remove 4.9 million tonnes of CO2-e from the atmosphere.
