International planning, architecture, engineering, interior design, and program management firm LEO A DALY announced that it will celebrate Earth Day 2015 with a worldwide day of volunteerism on April 25. An estimated 625 employees and family members in 31 offices will spend the Saturday after Earth Day in a variety of community-focused cleanup activities.

The Earth Day event, which will mobilize volunteers in the United States and China, is being coordinated by The Futures Council, a group of LEO A DALY company leaders who take on special initiatives to push forward the firm’s vision of “enhancing the quality of the human experience, and the environment.”

“This is LEO A DALY’s 100th year as a company, and the 80th anniversary of our subsidiary LAN. What better way to reinforce our commitment to the next 100 years than to go all-out in volunteering to make our communities, and our world, more livable, beautiful, and green?” said LEO A DALY President Dennis Petersen.

All volunteers will be wearing a t-shirt designed in-house as part of a company-wide design contest. The winning t-shirt, by West Palm Beach employee Tung Chui, depicts several of the firm’s iconic buildings emerging from a green globe.
