Green House Data, a provider of data center services including cloud hosting, colocation, and managed IT, has announced its support and sponsorship of the #HackClimate campaign, including the planting of 3,000 trees that would remove 150 tons of C02 from the atmosphere.
Those 3,000 trees will count towards the primary goal of #HackClimate to plant 1,000,000 trees globally. Beginning October 6th, supporters can help crowdfund the campaign for one dollar per tree. The crowdfunding campaign was designed by Republic of Change, a soon-to-launch social network promoting individual and collective action on climate change.
“I’m glad to see more organizations drawing attention to the climate challenges facing us today,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “Participating in this campaign furthers the Green House Data goals of energy efficiency and sustainability, while also supporting additional outreach and education on the issues of climate and deforestation.”
The consensus of the UN, NASA, NOAA and many climate scientists would be that sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere remains one of the best ways to combat climate change.
Green House Data was founded with efficiency and sustainability in mind, with energy efficient data center facilities and over 100% of the power supplying them attributable to renewable energy sources. The company is also an EPA Green Power Partner and a certified B Corp.
The #HackClimate campaign will also include series of articles on Medium and the production of a feature-length documentary covering socially and environmentally responsible businesses. Individuals and businesses can learn more about the campaign online at http://republicofchange.com/campaign/.
