One Tree Pledge

Join us for our 2nd annual RESNET VIRTUAL Conference 5K Race during the #RESNET2022 Building Performance Conferences!

RESNET is raising money for our campaign with One Tree Pledge to plant 300,000 trees by the year 2023, in honor of our #3MHERSandCounting milestone! Over 119,000 trees have been planted so far!

The 3 million-plus HERS® homes built since 2012 have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by over 49 million tons,* the equivalent of taking nearly 9.7 million passenger vehicles off the road for 1 year. We are celebrating the milestone with environmental activism because there is more to be done. Trees capture carbon, so help us plant some!

We’ve partnered with One Tree Pledge, a commitment to help offset the carbon emissions of the homes or buildings we occupy, to make it easy and cost-effective. One Tree Pledge has partnered with One Tree Planted who will plant one tree for every $1 donated. One Tree Pledge and RESNET are urging everyone from ratings companies to builders to realtors to help us plant trees. The trees will naturally sequester roughly 3 million pounds of carbon from the atmosphere annually. For only $1 per tree, we can help mitigate carbon emissions, building a better future for those who will be living or working in the homes and buildings we build, rate, or sell.

Join our campaign to plant 300,000 trees by January 2023. Help us combat climate change!


  1. When you participate in this year’s #RESNET5K, each dollar raised will plant 1 tree! Here’s how you can participate on your own or on a team:

    2. Create a team fundraising page and recruit coworkers, family, and friends. Or make it a friendly competition in your office! Because it’s virtual, anyone from anywhere can participate. Share the custom team link provided to encourage your social networks to donate.

  1. Remember to take a picture of you, your course, or your running time and share it on social media, and tag RESNET with the hashtag #RESNET5k. 
    You must complete the 5K anytime from Earth Day, April 22 to May 31, in honor of this year’s virtual #RESNET2022 Building Performance Conference. So start setting your goals TODAY!
