Annual Green Week of Volunteer Projects Promote Environmental Awareness
NEW YORK, Apr. 20 /CSRwire/ - Today, CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) announced its continued commitment to sustainability by hosting its eighth annual Green Week of employee volunteer activities around the globe. The projects, in celebration of Earth Day, will take place April 20 – April 24 and include beach and park clean-ups, tree plantings, gardening, trail maintenance, landscape beautification and litter removal.
Green Week projects are being held throughout the US in locations including Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Ewing, NJ; Fort Collins, CO, Framingham, MA; Islandia, NY; Lisle, IL; New York, NY; Plano, TX; Portsmouth, NH; and internationally in Australia, the Czech Republic, China, France, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain and the United Kingdom.
“CA’s Earth Day celebration has continued to grow since its launch in 2008,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “We applaud our colleagues around the world who continue to give their time and talents through Green Week activities, assisting their local communities and raising awareness about the environment.”
CA Technologies employees in more than 18 countries will take time out of their work day to give back through company coordinated events. Many of this year’s Green Week activities are being held with longtime partners.
“We all benefit from the beauty and serenity of our nation’s protected lands,” said Joseph Leissle, volunteer coordinator for the Robert Moses State Park in Babylon, NY. “It’s an honor to be selected as a benefactor of one of CA’s Green Week projects. CA employee volunteers will work to control erosion and clear litter, and will hopefully inspire others to take an interest in preserving our natural surroundings and caring about the environment.”
“It’s exciting to see that a technology firm and an environmental advocacy organization can have aligned goals to address issues around waste reduction and greenhouse gas emissions,” said TJ Lemanski, director of operations for Ecology Action in Austin, TX. “During CA’s Green Week, we will give CA Technologies employees a first-hand look into the recycling process and provide them a unique opportunity to work in material processing. We believe that direct connection with waste and what happens after materials are discarded builds a person’s propensity to recycle in their everyday life.”
"On Earth Day, CA Technologies employees will get a rare opportunity to step back in time and help protect ruins in the Roman acropolis of Tivoli," said Giorgia Montesano, Property Manager of Parco Villa Gregoriana, Fondo Ambiente Italiano's (FAI) property in Tivoli. Affiliated with the International National Trust Organization, FAI oversees the protection of the landscapes of Italy’s cultural assets.
