With Earth Day 2019 approaching, I’m pleased to share, for its third consecutive year Veritas Technologies is launching a global digital initiative in support of the Trees for the Earth campaign byEarth Day Network. Trees for the Earth is an ambitious effort to contribute to the fight against climate change, help protect biodiversity, and support forest-dependent communities. The campaign aims to plant 7.8 billion trees by 2020—that’s one tree planted for every person on the planet by 2020.
And notably, since 2010 the Earth Day Network has planted approximately 2 billion trees in more than 30 countries—empowering communities to “conserve and increase forest cover on their lands while improving their local economies.”
Asking members of #TeamVtas to complete a brief survey, our Corporate Responsibility team then plants a tree on their behalf; over the past 2 years, Veritas Technologies has planted over 4,595 trees representing employees across the company’s global offices.
Opportunities like supporting the Trees for the Earth campaign are a part of what makes #LifeAtVeritas so fulfilling. Please find additional details on the Earth Day Network and its campaign efforts at earthday.org.
