For 2023 and the future, Continuent has decided to focus more and more on important Climate related issues, naturally to the extent a software company can.
To demonstrate this commitment, for the Holiday Season 2022 we decided to donate 14 Mangrove trees for all Tungsten customer contacts as well as the internal Continuent team members, plus some friends and family members. Continuent has partnered with a Finnish company Treebuddy.Earth to get this done.
Why 14 trees, one may ask?
In order to reach individual annual Climate Positive status, it takes about 14 trees over 20 years — each Mangrove tree will reduce in 20 years 0.5t CO2 from the atmosphere — to offset the average 1-year carbon footprint of a person.
By planting these tens of thousands of trees, the Continuent community as a whole will contribute towards positive development of global sustainability. But not only that - with local empowerment, we also enable a number of local jobs in areas that need them most.
And last, but not least, by this gesture, perhaps we can inspire various people or companies to take on similar action and plant even more trees!
