Greenville, SC (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
Green Cloud Technologies, an employee-owned cloud solutions provider (CSP) based in Greenville, SC, announces strong growth in its flagship “Plant a Tree” environmental effort.
Green Cloud Technologies—Business Black Box’s 2015 Green Award winner and one of SC’s Top 25 Fastest-Growing Companies—is dedicated to environmental sustainability by reducing the company’s carbon footprint. In partnership with Carbonfund.org, Green Cloud plants a tree for each of their customers during each quarter of the business year. Launched on Earth Day in 2014, Green Cloud’s Plant-a-Tree Initiative planted 1,490 trees in its first year. For 2015, Green Cloud planted 1,896 trees, a nearly 28% increase.
Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree Partner program helps companies offset their environmental impact by encouraging companies to calculate their carbon footprint, and then participate in Carbonfund.org's third-party certified projects for forest preservation and improving local environments.
“Green Cloud’s commitment to environmental stewardship is directly tied to our tremendous growth as a company. 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.” said Green Cloud CEO, Shay Houser.
