Green Key Global, North America’s leading international environmental certification body. For every new membership, Green Key Global will plant one tree.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for Green Key Global,” said Green Key Global’s Rebecca Bartlett-Jones, Manager of Business Development. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make a tremendous impact by supporting improved environmental performance for hotels and meeting spaces, it’s great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”
The objectives of this new partnership include:
- Supporting global reforestation efforts
- Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
- Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Green Key Global on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting a tree for every new membership. It’s a prime example of how hotels and meeting spaces can make positive change for our planet.”
The partnership is designed to be simple for Green Key Global members to get involved in global reforestation. For every new membership, Green Key Global will donate $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
