LAS VEGAS, April 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading call center provider Global Sky has planted more than 2,000 trees in its ongoing efforts to unify and share resources around the world.
Global Sky President James Stinson launched the tree-planting program last year in partnership with the well-known green initiative Eco-Libris.
Headquartered in Las Vegas, Global Sky operates a 300-seat call center in the Philippines. A tree is planted for every call center seat filled.
The trees are planted with Eco-Libris partners that work in collaboration with local communities in developing countries in Latin America and Africa, where deforestation is a crucial problem. Planting trees in these places not only helps to fight climate change and conserve soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.
"We are very impressed with the commitment of Global Sky and its efforts to contribute to the world's resources," said Raz Godelnik, CEO of Eco-Libris. "This is another example of how you can do well by doing good, as Global Sky is building its reputation among clients as a socially responsible company and a trusted partner."
Global Sky's clients include Fortune 500 companies as well as progressive entrepreneurs and global executives. Global Sky offers a 10 percent discount to companies participating in environmentally focused efforts.
