EcoMatcher brings tree planting to Microsoft Teams

EcoMatcher has announced the EcoMatcher app for Microsoft Teams, bringing the benefits of tree planting directly into Microsoft Teams. Teams users can now plant trees, track them through satellite mapping, view pictures of the trees and farmers looking after them, and even chat with their chatbot powered trees and listen to 'Forest Sounds', to improve their overall wellbeing, all without leaving Teams.

The integration helps Teams users contribute to reforesting the planet where it is most needed, while providing a moment to relax in nature virtually.

‘We have seen a significant increase in companies looking to leverage technologies that support climate action and promote employee wellbeing. The EcoMatcher app for Microsoft Teams does exactly that, allowing employees to plant and track trees while taking a moment to recharge before their next work challenge,’ said Bas Fransen, CEO, and founder of EcoMatcher.

Talking about the collaboration, chief sustainability officer for Microsoft Middle East and Africa, Sherif Tawfik, commented: ‘EcoMatcher allows any person or organisation to plant a tree at the touch of a button. By integrating the app within Microsoft Teams and making it accessible to over a quarter of a billion people that use the platform, we are empowering more individuals to become actively involved in tree planting. Ultimately, it is collaborations like these that are needed to shift the momentum, to build a more sustainable future for all.’
