The Meadowlands, N.J., company continues its commitment to the environment with a contribution to Trees for the Future.
Dec. 17, 2013, Secaucus, N.J. - IPS, a leading provider of AP automation and invoice processing solutions, continued its commitment to decreasing its carbon footprint and increasing awareness of environmental issues by making a sizeable donation to Trees for the Future.
IPS’ contribution will allow the organization to plant 5,000 fast-growing, permanent, beneficial trees in fragile, eroded lands around the world. The company has donated nearly 25,000 trees over the course of its partnership with Trees for the Future.
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, protecting the environment and helping preserve traditional livelihoods and culture for generations.
“At IPS, we’ve been leveraging paperless solutions to create cost savings and efficiencies for our clients for more than 20 years,” IPS president and CEO Greg Bartels said. “But we also recognize how important decreasing paper consumption is to our environment. Working with Trees for the Future is a natural progression of that philosophy. As responsible corporate citizens, giving back is simply the right thing to do – and helping the environment helps us all.”
