Nextiva Maintains its Environmental Leadership Position by Renewing Participation in Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree® Program
March 13, 2012 - Scottsdale, AZ
Nextiva, the leading unified communications and business VoIP service provider, announced today that it is offsetting its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org Foundation, a leading nonprofit carbon reduction and climate solutions organization. By renewing its participation for the fourth consecutive year in Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree® Partner program, Nextiva demonstrates its commitment to the fight against global warming.
Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree® Partner program supports third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad to reduce CO2 emissions and accelerate the transition to a clean energy future. During the last year, Nextiva has enhanced its internal recycling program by providing employees with beverage cups to minimize the use of paper products, adding many plants around the office and reducing the number of printers onsite. Nextiva continues to utilize eco-effective technology in its data centers and support their clients' eco-friendly goals at the same time by offering an online fax service called vFAX.
"Our commitment to being the best partner for our customers guides all of our business decisions, and we want them to know that in addition to providing cloud-based services, we also make environmentally-conscious decisions about our physical office locations," states Yaniv Masjedi, VP of Nextiva. "By developing a carbon neutral office environment, we demonstrate to our customers and employees that we are doing our part to offset CO2 emissions."
"We are thrilled to renew our partnership with Nextiva and applaud their ongoing efforts to protect our planet," said Eric Carlson, president of Carbonfund.org. "Fortunately, Nextiva is as committed to protecting the environment as it is to delivering reliable VoIP services for businesses. We are excited about their ongoing participation in the CarbonFree® Partner Program."
