Area Tech Leader to Plant One Tree for every new Client, Contractor Renewed Contract
CPU, Inc. has today released the details behind its 2021 One Tree Planted Campaign. This initiative will result in one tree being planted for every new partner signup, every new contract, and every renewed contract from this point forward.
“We are delighted to partner with One Tree Planted, who we’ve been admiring for a while now, through their efforts to rebuild forests after natural disasters,” said Senior Vice President Jeanne DeWitt. “My husband David (Hood) and I had a wish to build a business that could give back to the planet, and even before we met, both had a desire to help with wildlife rehabilitation and supporting their habitats.”
CPU Inc’s initiative began to reduce their carbon footprint and give back to individuals and the company. Having been a very early adopter of the cloud, they recognized the need for smart, sustainable efforts that even individuals could do, which would have a major impact over time. Deforestation quickly caught their attention as they realized the devastating effect of 15 billion trees being cut down every year.
“Our planting projects will play an important role in protecting the homes and food sources of our global wildlife population,” said DeWitt. “David and I both grew up finding and rehabilitating hurt animals, which felt rewarding for supporting nature in our community, so after 35 years in business, we made this our social responsibility.”
One Tree Planted has committed over 20 million trees in the first 7 years of operation. They have doubled the number of trees planted every year, and in 2020 alone, planted over 10 million trees around the world in more than 28 countries. Individual and company support made all this possible, as they received more than $15 million in support, setting them up for ambitions and possible record-breaking 2021. A single tree can be home to hundreds of insects, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants while providing a canopy, shelter, food, protection, and promoting ground growth and shade.
