The month of April can get everyone thinking green – spring takes hold in most places, trees are budding new leaves, and Earth Day celebrations are in the works.
Some environmentally aware organizations think green all year ‘round and make efforts to maintain their environmental commitments as ongoing business priorities. New Carbonfund.org supporter, Green Cloud Technologies, launched a program in 2014 to recognize each customer by planting a tree in their honor. Not only does Green Cloud provide environmentally responsible solutions for data management, Green Cloud also cares about preserving the world’s habitat. Their commitment to donate one tree per customer every quarter to Carbonfund.org should result in more than 1500 trees planted this year.
If a business isn’t in “the Cloud”, a significant portion of company resources may go toward implementing, managing, and maintaining a traditional business IT environment. The Cloud changes all of this. Cloud technology connects your business to servers, applications, and other managed services located at a data center. Users access these resources via their laptops, smartphones, tablets, or desktops via the Internet.
Likewise, tree-planting projects around the world connect and enhance the environment by improving soil quality, reducing erosion, providing local community-based jobs, and better air and water quality. Now, Green Cloud Technologies customers are participating with their data management provider in critical environmental preservation projects around the world.
