Pledge Reporting US Chapter aims to connect, empower, and mobilize a national reforestation community, unleashing their potential to act at an unprecedented scale and speed, to conserve, restore, and grow one trillion trees globally within this decade. We acknowledge the importance of matching this ambition with accountability that is both consistent and transparent.

Over the first three years of the US Chapter, we have seen tremendous support for forests and trees from U.S. leaders across all sectors. In consultation with our pledgers and global restoration experts, we developed a reporting framework that can fully capture the complexity of the pledges with rigor and accountability without being administratively burdensome. We are now asking you to report on the first two years of pledge activities. US Chapter Reporting Framework

Our aim is to ensure that the reporting process is both succinct and efficient, drawing on readily accessible information and aligning with emerging reporting and accounting frameworks. The progress reports will provide a concise overview of accomplishments, enabling stakeholders and the wider community to grasp the progress achieved thus far. This will encompass insights into lessons learned and potential avenues for future collaboration.

Within the reporting structure, you will share the fundamental data of your entity’s pledge from 2020 to 2022.  The Pledge Ambition section will serve as the public representation of your pledge, telling your story to the broader audience. This section allows you to narrate your entity’s activities in your own words and is required for all pledges. Under Pledge Implementation, we will inquire about specifics such as the number of trees or hectares, along with metrics concerning supporting action activities. Report only on the sections that correspond to your pledged activities. The Pledge Indicators section of the reporting structure captures additional details on the actions and impact of the pledge. You should pick two indicators to report on.

The chart below outlines the reporting structure. The US Chapter Reporting Framework Guide will walk you through step-by-step how to complete your pledge report.
