We have a very important mission here at Inframark: to be the partner and protector of the most critical resource that helps communities prosper.
We take this mission very seriously and because of that sustainability is a priority for our organization. This is why we have committed to partnering with One Tree Planted. We want to help to provide a greener living for all.
My guess is you are asking yourself, why trees and not water? Well, trees work just as hard as we do to protect and purify our water sources. In fact, trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters; removing pollutants and slowing down the waters absorption into the ground. This process prevents harmful waterside erosion and reduces the risk of over-saturation and flooding.
In addition to helping filtrate the water, trees can offset our carbon footprint. Many of our daily activities - such as using electricity, driving our trucks, flying to client locations, or disposing of waste - cause greenhouse gas emissions. These gases are contributing to global warming which can be detrimental to our environment and in our instance, our water supply.
In order to support this program and strengthen our impact as a whole, we have implemented a program with our Procurement department to track our air miles every month and donate the proper amount of trees to help off-set our carbon emissions as well as help clean our water the natural way. Along the way, we will also be running employee fundraisers to help contribute to the cause.
We invite you to watch our progress as we donate monthly and plant trees across America.
