QNET announced a new partnership with Certified B Corporation EcoMatcher as part of its new Green Legacy program. Through this collaboration, QNET will plant three new forests of 1,000 trees each in Kenya, UAE and the Philippines. This initiative contributes to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which identify reforestation and sustainable forest management as a key to combating climate change.
“To say we are planting trees is perfunctory,” said Malou Caluza, QNET Chief Executive Officer. “Our commitment to reforestation in these communities goes much deeper. We are in a long-term partnership to ensure these forests thrive long into the future while meeting the needs and desires of each community. QNET is building a Green Legacy to protect the planet for all of us. These three forests are just the beginning. We will work closely with EcoMatcher and other environmental organizations to identify the global footprint of the QNET forests over the next few years.”
EcoMatcher is a certified social enterprise that uses a blockchain-enabled digital tree planting platform and works with vetted environmental organizations from around the world to help companies incorporate tree planting into their business model. With EcoMatcher’s app, QNET can track each tree’s performance through ID geolocation and track its carbon impact through a user-friendly dashboard.
“As a global company with nearly a thousand employees and millions of customers in approximately 100 countries, QNET is committed to being a purpose driven company that is driving change in the lives of our people, our communities, and the planet,” said Caluza. “Most recently, when Turkey was ravaged by hundreds of wildfires across 14 locations, we stepped in by donating 2000 saplings to an environmental foundation leading reforestation effort in Antalya. Our partnership with EcoMatcher is the latest manifestation of our commitment to the environment that stretches back over the past 23 years.”
