...While we were working at Presidio Bluffs, hundreds of people walked and bicycled by us, most of them visitors headed for the Bridge. We heard thank-you’s for our efforts from people who had crossed oceans to see this world landmark. It made me proud to get that recognition, working for a global company that crosses oceans every day, but still cares about the sustainability of the local communities it serves.

Making Metros Greener

Every time I visit a U.S. city, I try to find a path, park or greenway so I can be in nature and see the city from a different angle. Without doubt, these parks and pathways are filled with local citizens enjoying these outdoor resources.

Viable parks, waterways and greenways make cities come alive. They are vital to not only the ecosystem, but the health of the city – attracting talent, creating fitness options, and offering outdoor learning labs for children and families. For FedEx, these spaces provide communities with safe places for children to play, reduce carbon and create communities that will prosper.
