Document management and imaging software author, Version One, have been Tree Appeal partners since October 2006 and have planted more than 4600 trees to date.
Working with Tree Appeal, Version One plants a tree for every software purchase, proving that they are a company who are committed to giving something back to the environment.
Julian Buck, General Manager of Version One, says, “Our involvement with Tree Appeal is a fundamental part of our green initiative. This initiative is vital for improving our environmental credentials and proving that as a paperless office software provider we are green with our actions as well as our words.” By making tree planting integral to their business, Version One are adding instant value to their products and services, enabling their customers to make a tangible difference to the natural world.

All of the trees sponsored by Version One are planted into schools across the UK, where they fulfil the important role of acting as a fantastic learning resource for the younger generation. Sponsoring trees into schools not only benefits the environment but gives Version One a medium through which to actively engage with local communities.
Document management and imaging software author, Version One, has launched its Carbon-Neutral Initiative. As part of this initiative, Version One will offset its carbon emissions by planting native broad-leaved trees, through Tree Appeal, on behalf of new customers that purchase Version One software and services.
Julian Buck, Managing Director of Version One, says, “Our document management and imaging software has been helping businesses reduce their paper consumption for nearly eighteen years. Now it’s time for Version One to take its environmental commitment to the next level.”
“Since first established, Version One has emitted over 2000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere and so by launching this Carbon-Neutral Initiative, we are making strides to offset these emissions. This initiative will also force us to put environmental thinking at the heart of our strategy, enabling us to make a real difference to both our local community and the wider environment. By setting standards for others to follow, we hope that more and more businesses will introduce their own carbon initiatives thereby helping to meet Government targets of a 60 per cent cut in emissions by 2050.”
