Dallas, 22 April 2020 – o9 Solutions, a premier AI-driven integrated planning and operations solution provider for the enterprise, announces a partnership with Tree-Nation, a platform dedicated to reforest the world and fight climate change. The partnership is one of the many steps o9 Solutions will take toward its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
Tree-Nation, a non-profit organization that allows citizens and companies to plant trees worldwide and offset their CO2 emissions, was selected by o9 employees as the non-profit to support during the o9 Solutions’ Walkathon. Almost 350 employees worldwide joined the challenge and walked 50 million steps to help Tree-Nation. Upon reaching this goal, o9 Solutions donated $20,000 to Tree-Nation, funding the growth of 6,000+ trees in nine countries across four continents.
The collaboration has now expanded to a long-term partnership. In 2021, for each employee’s new hire and work anniversary, o9 will be planting a tree. Moreover, o9 will compensate for all emissions generated by the traffic on o9’s website, and the company will adopt tree-gifting to show gratitude to customers and partners for their collaboration with o9. In addition, several initiatives are planned to raise awareness of the problem of deforestation and collect funds to plant more trees around the world.
Igor Rikalo, COO of o9 Solutions, said: “As social impact is one of o9’s core values, the mission of Tree-Nation is very much aligned with our vision of helping enterprises plan better, so they can make better use of Earth’s resources. Tree-Nation’s mission also helps mitigate the global warming effects of climate change, and we are more than happy to contribute to this cause.”
