Scality FOR GOOD
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUPPORTING POSITIVE ACTIONS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Scality’s longstanding commitment to environmental conservation is affirmed by its partnership with ReforestAction, an organization founded to raise awareness about the enchanting power of forests and the need to protect them. Since 2010, ReforestAction has planted 5 million trees across the globe to improve the condition of humanity and the erosion of biodiversity.
The partnership, which began with a focus of offsetting travel-based carbon emissions, has reached an even deeper level of meaning and urgency in light of the recent San Francisco Bay Area complex fires. Scality is committing to planting 10,000 trees in California by the spring of 2021. 4,000 trees will be planted in Paris to help improve air quality as the city tackles high pollution levels.

The Laurette Fugain association’s main objective is to fight leukaemia. Scality chose to support this association while taking part in the Course du Coeur, a running and cycling relay race from Paris to the French Alps. The idea originally came from the desire of Scality runners to show their solidarity with another employee upon her return from a 6-month fight against a rare form of leukaemia and to send a clear message about Scality’s commitment towards organ donation.
Save the Children
Save the Children is an international organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. Scality, throughout its Social Responsibility program allows each employee to ask the company to match their own donations to foundations or associations or to propose collective initiatives for causes they wish to support.
The total cost of living in San Francisco is 62.6% higher than the U.S. average. In 2017, Scality, together with CloudNOW, Google and Accenture, chose to support students in need wishing to attend the innovative software engineering school Holberton based in the Bay Area by launching a scholarship program.
WILDLIFE CONSERVATION NETWORK
At Scality, we believe that taking care of human diversity starts by protecting the environment in which we live, and biodiversity is a strong element of that belief. The impacts of species migration, species extinction and global warming on the human population are plentiful and will only become greater with the ever-increasing human population on the planet.
