Our reforestation project
Today, according to theADEME* (French Environment and Energy Management Agency), the IT sector accounts for 4% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Given the impact that digital technology has on the environment, we decided to take action by launching a reforestation project. To do this, we called on the company Reforest'Action.
Symalean is participating in a reforestation project in the region of Piura, located in northern Peru. A region which is facing climatic challenges, but which is also affected by desertification, according to Reforest'Action. Symalean has chosen to plant trees in Peru in order to fight against these phenomena.
In order to involve as many people as possible in our action, we have given each of our customers the opportunity to plant 10 trees in Peru. A gesture to thank them for their trust, but also so that they contribute to our Green IT approach. A simple cooperation via a code or a link allowing them to plant their trees.
