Scality announced an initiative with Reforest’Action to plant 14,000 trees to help address climate change in California and Europe by the end of 2021. The effort has become a more urgent priority after the recent complex lightning fires in California burned over 1.4 million acres surrounding US Scality’s home base in the San Francisco, Bay Area.
To help the most impacted forests in California, Scality is committing to planting 10,000 trees in California by the spring of 2021. The other 4,000 trees will be planted at the start of 2021 near Paris. Employees from Reforest’Action and Scality will come together with forestry experts and agricultural technicians to plant trees and will work with local communities to ensure their growth with the best possible conditions.
Scality is the leader in software solutions for distributed file and object storage.
Reforest’Action was founded in 2010 to raise awareness about the enchanting power of forests and the need to protect them. They focus on multi-species planting projects, adapted to the local ecosystem. Since its creation, 10 million trees have been planted across the globe to improve the condition of humanity and the erosion of biodiversity.
