KnowledgeTree, an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) provider focusing on affordable document management software that is easily installed and used by business professionals, today announced the launch of a green IT promotion benefiting Food & Trees for Africa to promote environmental sustainability.

Established in 1990, Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) embraces best practices in sustainable environmental activities that empower poor communities while also playing an important role in reducing the carbon emissions that are threatening the planet.

FTFA brings trees to impoverished areas through its National Tree Distribution Program, which relies on help from corporate sponsors like KnowledgeTree.

KnowledgeTree solutions help organizations manage the document lifecycle, promote collaboration, ensure compliance and reduce paper with electronic document storage and retrieval. KnowledgeTree’s commercial offerings are available as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution or an on-premise product.

KnowledgeTree provides an easy-to-use, secure platform that enables access to documents anytime, anywhere – reducing both paper dependency and carbon footprint. Each planted tree will be documented with a certificate issued to
customers outlining the details of their contribution.

To date, over 3.5 million trees have been distributed through the National Tree Distribution Program to schools, clinics, retirement homes, hospices, police stations and parks. “Sustainable development is about people, participation and common purpose,” said Jeunesse Park, Founder of Food & Trees for Africa.

“FTFA is pleased KnowledgeTree is demonstrating a commitment to environmental sustainability and social welfare by participating in the program.”
