The FIS Group Plants a Tree for Each of Its 800 Employees and, in Doing so, Focuses on Sustainable Corporate Philosophy

The FIS Group sets an impressive sign for environmental protection and sustainability by planting a forest with 800 trees in Pegnitz (Upper Franconia). The number of the planted trees stands for the 800 employees of the FIS Group consisting of the three enterprises FIS Informationssysteme und Consulting GmbH (FIS), FIS-ASP Application Service Providing und IT-Outsourcing GmbH (ASP) and Medienwerft – Agentur für digitale Medien und Kommunikation GmbH (Medienwerft).

On March 20, 2024, the management board members of the enterprises took the opportunity to jointly plant the first seedlings into the ground during a planting event.

The project site extends over a spacious area of 1,620 square meters and fulfills the demanding PEFC standard. In cooperation with project partner Treemer®, it is not just the planting of the trees that is ensured, but also the long-term care and preservation of the forest according to highest forestal standards.

The FIS forest spreads over an existing surface that is reafforested and enlarged by additional plantings. In doing so, the focus is primarily on the species of “lime” and “cherry” as well as on other particularly climate-resilient and insect-friendly tree and shrub species. The aim is the creation of an ecologically valuable, species-rich and stable forest ecosystem.

With this initiative, the FIS Group proves that enterprises can play an active role in environmental protection. The planting of 800 trees in Pegnitz is not only a contribution to the local environment, but also an inspiring example of the connection between corporate responsibility and ecological sustainability.

In a time when environmental awareness and sustainable action become more and more important, the FIS Group sets a sign for a greener future with this campaign. “We hope that this initiative will inspire other enterprises to take similar steps for environmental protection and jointly promote sustainable changes,” Christian Lang, Management Board Member at FIS, points out.
