AFL has taken on several initiatives to protect our environment. We monitor electrical, natural gas and water use as well as the generation of non-hazardous and hazardous materials. AFL is concerned about environmental stewardship and takes an active approach to giving back.

Part of this giving back includes protecting our environment by providing trees and shrubs in our communities. Every five years, AFL sets a long-term goal for planting and/or donating trees. Having met our first objective of 5,000 trees in five years, AFL has set a new goal to plant a tree for every associate during the next five-year period. The new goal amounts to over 12,000 trees!

Monterrey, Mexico

Chipinque


AFL Monterrey is supporting reforestation efforts by providing the funds to plant 4,000 trees in Chipinque, a natural habitat of 4,425 acres rising to altitudes from 2,395 up to 7,218 feet above sea level. After a forest fire affected one-third of the park, an ecological restoration project was created.
