Today ecology.IT completed the process to become a member of 1% for the Planet. This membership reflects our commitment to live what we teach as a company. While technology companies cannot help but generate significant pollution as a result of our ever-growing need for power and equipment, we can commit to do our best to offset those demands.
Joining the 1% for the Planet organization demonstrates our belief that business can factor sustainability priorities into their operations, and where possible can commit resources toward long-term sustainability goals outside of their corporate sphere. Programs like 1% for the Planet ensure that investments continue to be made in environmental stewardship – from projects that directly impact the planet to education programs that help foster an environmental focus in science and technology programs.
Ecology.IT believes in the need for both technology and sustainability, and we hope that our commitment to 1% for the Planet helps demonstrate that belief.
