Global Sky Has Planted More Than 4,000 Trees, Setting a New Benchmark for the Call Center Industry
Environmental Effort of a Global Call Center Continues after Achieving a New Milestone
Global Sky CEO James Stinson launched the tree-planting program in 2010 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, offering a unique way for companies using call center services to green up their service and demonstrate their commitment to replenishing the earth.
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 local people in many ways such as improving crops, providing additional food and income, and reducing soil erosion.
"Global Sky has demonstrated in the last couple of years a remarkable commitment not only to tree planting, but also to sharing the concept of better use of resources with its customers,” says Raz Godelnik, Eco-Libris CEO. "Planting over 4,000 trees is making them a true green leader in their industry."
"This life is short, every day is an opportunity to plant seeds that will outlast it," says James Stinson, Global Sky CEO.
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.
