Partnering with One Tree Planted, Collabera Moves Forward on Sustainability Initiative
Basking Ridge, NJ: Collabera is excited to announce a new partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. The sustainability effort is designed to advance an eco-friendlier presence for Collabera across the globe.
As a charitable environmental leader, One Tree Planted has doubled the number of trees planted each year since being founded in 2014, In 2020 alone they planted 10 million trees. Their projects have helped restore and protect habitats for wildlife – while creating job opportunities and rebuilding communities. Now Collabera and One Tree Planted are working together to promote environmental awareness and create healthier global climates.
The joint program includes projects targeted at individual, local, and global impact. At the community level, Collabera is funding the planting of 1,100 fruit trees in the Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh Indian regions – promoting sustainable biodiversity, community, and soil and erosion control impacts throughout the Villages of Palwal. Additionally, plans include building two new nurseries in communities where the fruit trees will be planted to economize transportation costs and improve sapling acclimatization. As a global initiative, Collabera will be eliminating paper business cards for employees by transitioning to a digital alternative. To celebrate this significant change, Collabera has committed to plant an additional 500 trees to countervail the number of business cards printed over the past 25 years. Collabera will also be showing our gratitude for our enterprise clients by planting one tree per candidate hired in 2021.
Collabera plans to implement additional sustainability goals going forward.
