Green provider Green Cloud Technologies
(Green Cloud) has announced the extension of its ‘Plant-a-Tree’ initiative into 2016. Green Cloud, which has headquarters in Greenville, South Carolina, United States, operates on a “channel-only” distribution model. The company provides a range of solutions and manages an extensive network of channel partners and dealers that include resellers, managed service providers, and telephone companies. Its cloud solutions allow its partners to offer customers “turn-key Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions”. Green Cloud’s extended program underscores its environmental efforts.
Green Cloud is committed to “environmental sustainability” and has partnered with carbon offsetting organization Carbonfund.org - a leading non-profit climate solutions organization that has worked with over 2,000 corporate and nonprofit partners to help them calculate and offset their carbon footprints. Green Cloud’s ‘Plant-a-Tree’ initiative sees Green Cloud plant trees on behalf of its customers. It began on Earth Day in 2014 and the company planted 1,490 trees in the first year of the initiative alongside a further 1,896 trees last year – an increase of around 28%.
“Green Cloud’s commitment to environmental stewardship is directly tied to our tremendous growth as a company,” explained Shay Houser, CEO of Green Cloud. “As we grow and our carbon footprint increases, so does the level of our commitment to offsetting the consequences. The increase in trees planted this year is exciting for us as a company, because it not only represents our business success, but also means we’re making a bigger effort to help the environment.” Do you know of any other companies helping the environment?
