NEW YORK, Apr. 08 /CSRwire/ - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced its annual Green Week of worldwide employee volunteer activities in celebration of Earth Day. Currently in its seventh year, Green Week promotes environmental awareness and supports the company’s sustainability efforts. As part of the program, CA Technologies employees will give time during their work day to nonprofit organizations, and participate in activities like beach clean-ups, tree plantings, trail maintenance and more.
Employee-driven projects will take place throughout the U.S. in locations including Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Bellevue, WA, Cary, NC; East Windsor, CT; Ewing, NJ; Framingham, MA; Ft Collins, CO; Herndon, VA; Islandia, NY; Lisle, IL; New York City, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; Plano, TX; Portsmouth, NH; Santa Clara, CA; Southfield, MI; and Tampa, FL and internationally in countries including Argentina, Australia, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, India, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
“Giving back to the communities where our employees live and work is an important part of our company culture,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “Whether it's planting trees, revitalizing distressed neighborhoods or cleaning local beaches and parks, CA employees will again come together and work to strengthen the communities where we do business.”
“Ecology Action’s mission is to create a healthier environment through resource recovery operations, Brownfield remediation and zero waste initiatives,” said Brent Perdue, Co-Director, Ecology Action in Austin. “Our recycling center reduces waste that is bound for local landfills. Together, with help from CA Technologies volunteers, we can help to create a more sustainable environment for everyone.”
“A great deal of garbage ends up in our rivers every day, which not only creates an eyesore, but threatens the lives of species that depend on this habitat,” said David Thomas, Volunteer Coordinator, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Atlanta. “Once again, CA Technologies employees are dedicating their time to preserving our natural resources. With their assistance, we hope to ensure clean waterways in our park – for all to enjoy.”
“The volunteer efforts made by CA Technologies employees are crucial in helping to protect Australia’s bushland areas,” said Sandra Payne, Bushcare Volunteer Coordinator, City of Ryde. “Planting native vegetation as well as the removal of invasive species will encourage regeneration of the bush lands and ultimately assist in maintaining our valued natural resources.”
