The leading tech firm has pledged to plant double the number of trees that they need to, every month, forever. Tribepad has planted 48,735 trees in Madagascar so far, to cover twice the value of all of the carbon that its data centres have ever used. The tech firm has also committed to planting trees that cover twice the value of all the carbon that their office consumes.
Tribepad is taking action and working with a monthly subscription service that helps businesses invest in protecting the planet, through planting trees across the globe to offset carbon footprint now and in the future.
Dean Sadler, CEO of Tribepad, comments: “We know that climate change is a major crisis facing our planet. We can’t afford to sit on the fence and wait for the politicians to do something. And we must take action ourselves. That is why we’re working with a green tree planting organisation - everyone can make small changes, which collectively make a huge positive difference.”
Tribepad has also given its team the ability to offset their personal life - committing to plant the number of trees required to offset how much carbon each employee has used, since being born. Further, Tribepad will also plant 100 trees on each team member’s birthday, 500 trees for each existing client in September 2020, and 1,000 trees for each new client, from now on.
As part of its ethical manifesto, Tribepad is also working with a non-profit community loan organisation that provides micro-loans for individuals and businesses; to help them build a better, more sustainable world for their families and local communities. Tribepad has pledged to provide at least $500 a month in incremental lending, each and every month, from hereon in.
Tribepad also recommits to regularly participating in fund-raising events for their annually chosen local and national charities, to help support UK communities. In recent months the tech firm developed a platform for Voluntary Action Sheffield, which helped to organise more than 1,000 volunteers across 25 partner organisations, the council and NHS
Sadler continues: “Our mantra has always been “people first, product second, profit third”, but in 2020, we’ve updated our thinking to improve the way we live and work sustainably. And with specific community organisations aiming to build a sustainable future, it was a no brainer that we wanted to jump onboard and help.”
As part of its ethical manifesto, Tribeped has also restated its commitment to delivering on diversity. Its talent technology has the power to help make recruitment fair and equitable for everyone. So whether it’s using video, AI or anonymous candidate features, Tribepad’s mission is to help clients deliver on their equality, diversity and inclusion agendas for the benefit of their organisation, and society as a whole. And as a team, Tribepad represents their clients and community in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, disability and sexuality.
Sadler adds: “Tech firms especially need to look at other ways they can take an ethical stance. From delivering on diversity by using tech to help make recruitment fair for everyone, or planting trees to stop climate change, or even investing in micro-loans for people less fortunate - there are lots of ways tech firms can make a positive impact.”
