SECAUCUS, NJ, March 10, 2020 – IPS, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions that transform accounts payable and invoice processing end-to-end, today announced that it has made a donation to Trees for the Future, a non-profit group that plants trees in developing communities worldwide.
IPS is a Trees for the Future Global Cooling Business partner and a longtime supporter of the group. IPS has pledged to plant enough trees each year to offset its annual carbon dioxide emissions.
“IPS is pleased to continue its support of Trees for the Future. TREES plays an important role in building communities and in helping farming families thrive,” said IPS President and CEO, Greg Bartels. “Our donation to Trees for the Future is part of IPS’s long commitment to creating a greener, more sustainable business environment through the elimination of paper and manual processes.”
Trees for the Future has been helping underserved communities plant trees since 1989. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training and country programs, Trees for the Future has empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps preserve traditional livelihoods and culture for generations.
