Arise Demonstrates Commitment to environmental Sustainability on Earth Day
MIRAMAR, Fla., April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Arise Virtual Solutions Inc. continues to demonstrate that they are not just changing the way the world works but changing the world for the better. Dedicated to promoting a sustainable and healthy environment, Arise commemorated Earth Day 2019 with a tree planting ceremony at their global headquarters in Miramar, Florida.
Spearheaded by Angela Miller, Director of Human Resources, employees of Arise partnered with Workspace Property & Trust to give back to the South Florida community by planting three oak trees on the property of their corporate headquarters.
“The oak tree is one of the most beloved trees in the world,” said Miller. “And with good reason - it is a symbol of endurance, knowledge and strength, much like the employees at Arise.”
World Earth Day began in 1970 to raise awareness about environmental issues and as a way to channel human energy toward actively doing something about it. Globally, the World Earth Day movement strives to plant 7.8 billion trees globally by 2020 and Arise was pleased to do its part.
“Today’s tree planting is a symbol of the day-to-day commitment to environmental sustainability that Arise has proudly represented for over 20 years,” said Scott Etheridge, Arise’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s not enough to promote corporate sustainability, we have to demonstrate solid corporate citizenship as well.”
The tree planting is only a small part of Arise’s green efforts in 2019. A pioneer of the gig economy, Arise connects work-at-home Service Partners to major brands to provide customer service support across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. As such, Arise facilitates a significant reduction in carbon emissions (98,000 metric tons of CO2), gas consumption (10.8M gallons), and energy (57M kWh) annually due to their virtual platform.
“With a completely virtual platform, there is no longer a need for businesses to waste energy or force their employees into commuter traffic. Instead, it’s an embrace of small businesses, local communities, and environmental stewardship” said Mr. Etheridge. “A brighter future is a greener future.”
