The spring power of regeneration: planting our first RITS Forest

RITS Professional Services joins the spring tree planting campaign by Posadzimy.pl, once again demonstrating our commitment to the environment. Trees are true heroes in adapting to climate change, which is why soon our first 100 trees will join this group.

They function as natural air filters, absorbing pollutants. The main cause of global warming – carbon dioxide, is transformed into life-sustaining oxygen through photosynthesis. Their roots act as natural sponges, regulating soil moisture by retaining water, which is particularly crucial as rainfall frequency and intensity increase. Their canopies provide natural shade, offering relief on hot days and reducing ambient temperatures. The rustling heroes – trees, allow us to detach from the rush of everyday life. Forest walks have a therapeutic effect, as evidenced by the growing popularity of forest bathing (shinrin yoku), observed among masters of spiritual development – the Japanese.

A forest is a space for rest and regeneration, but above all, it’s an ecosystem that plays a crucial role in protecting our planet. Therefore, we joyfully partnered with Posadzimy.pl to collectively create a forest that will effectively reduce our environmental impact. This initiative perfectly aligns with our values and our efforts towards environmental protection, as well as balancing work and private life for our employeessays Aleksandra Kamieniecka, Head of HR at RITS Professional Services. 

Where will our trees grow? 

RITS Professional Services has chosen Posadzimy.pl as its initiative partner, which has been collaborating with local authorities for several years, providing areas where forests have been destroyed, partly due to weather anomalies. Plantings occur twice a year (in spring and autumn) under the supervision of foresters, who select seedling species considering biodiversity. Foresters oversee the entire planting process conducted by professionals to give each seedling the chance to become a majestic pine, birch, spruce, larch, oak, or maple. 

The spring campaign by Posadzimy.pl will cover forest areas damaged by storms in Tuchola and the Gostynin municipality, while in the Żary municipality, trees will grow in a redeveloped area after a landfill site. 

RITS Forest in numbers 

Our first forest will cover 111 square meters, and the hundred trees planted within it will produce oxygen for 67 people and absorb 600 kg of CO2. That’s a lot of good for a promising start to our partnership with Posadzimy.pl! According to forecasts, the amount of paper saved will be close to six tons (exactly 5800 kg). And speaking of paper, RITS Professional Services has more to say here because joining the tree planting initiative is just one of many steps the company takes towards building a sustainable business. 

Paperless document circulation 

Thanks to electronic document circulation, RITS Professional Services has saved 52 961 sheets of paper to date, equivalent to saving 21 trees and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 7768 kg. These are data collected only from 2022 to the present. Electronic document circulation has been a standard for RITS since RITS -Anna Frąckowiakits inception, but it’s only since 2022 that the company has had the ability to monitor its environmental impact through tools provided by its solution provider. 

We are aware that as a company providing technological services, our environmental impact may be smaller than that of manufacturing companies. However, we do not underestimate this fact and constantly seek ways to minimize our negative impact on the planet. Planting trees or implementing electronic document circulation are just some of the many actions we take for this purposesays Anna Frąckowiak-Kaczmarek, Head of Marketing at RITS Professional Services.
