  • Hyundai Donates $150,000 to Help Plant Trees Across the United States

SAN FRANCISCO, April 25, 2022 -- Hyundai Motor America today announced a partnership with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organization that focuses on global reforestation. Hyundai's donation will assist in the planting of 150,000 trees across the country throughout 2022, with the partnership kicking off on April 23 during a tree planting event at the iconic Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

The initiative is the latest to underscore Hyundai Motor's commitment to sustainability, mitigating environmental impacts caused by climate change and advancing its Progress for Humanity company vision. Hyundai is making significant investments in its journey toward electrification leadership, with plans to have 23 eco-friendly vehicles globally and one million electric vehicles by 2025, and a fully electrified vehicle lineup by 2040.

"This means creating a more sustainable future for everyone. It's critical to take care of our planet and One Tree Planted is a natural partner for us to further this mission."

"One Tree Planted is proud to continue our partnership with Hyundai, which includes two IONIQ 5's they have generously donated to be part of the One Tree Planted fleet," said Matt Hill, Founder & Chief Environmental Evangelist at One Tree Planted.
