Whenever Las Vegas-based Global Sky fills a seat in one of its call centers, it plants a tree in Latin America or Africa. So far, the organization has planted more than 2,000 trees.
Global Sky operates a huge call center in the Philippines to help it serve the customer service needs of Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs and global executives. The company offers a 10% discount to client companies participating in environmentally focused efforts.
The trees are planted with Delaware-based Eco-Libris, which has planted 190,000 trees since 2007 in an effort to promote green practices in the book industry. Eco-Libris partners work local communities in developing countries in Latin America and Africa, where deforestation is a crucial problem.
Eco-Libris CEO Raz Godelnik calls the Global Sky effort an “example of how you can do well by doing good.”
