WOBURN, MA – April 22, 2021: As we celebrate the 51st annual Earth Day, Ethos Veterinary Health is proud to reflect on our sustainability and environmental efforts.
To mark the 5-year anniversary of Ethos in 2020, we committed ourselves to increasing our focus on “Green Strategic Initiatives” with a goal of reducing our overall carbon footprint. As a step towards guiding and measuring our goals, strategies and impact, we created the Ethos Environmental and Social Responsibility Program. Some of the program’s activities will focus on energy and water use, recycling, and sourcing from environmentally-conscious suppliers and distributors.
On a national level, one activity Ethos is supporting reforestation efforts. The National Forest Foundation (NFF) launched a campaign to plant 50,000 trees. We have decided to partner with the NFF and sponsor a 10,000-tree planting initiative. Reforestation is a natural way to help combat climate change, restore and protect watersheds, provide habitat for a diversity of wildlife, and improve air quality. At Ethos we view this partnership as a way to improve the environment and recognize our employees, and their dedication to the natural world.
We will be funding the planting of about 5 new trees per employee as a way to acknowledge the hard work each of our team members do on a daily basis.
