Springer Nature Celebrates Publishing 1 Million OA Articles With a Tree-Planting Project

Springer Nature announced the following:

To celebrate becoming the first to publish one million Open Access ... articles, [Springer Nature] will fund the planting of 10,000 trees—one for every employee—over the next year, in the Khasi Hills in Northeast India.

The commitment, which was chosen to reflect the importance of sustainability to Springer Nature, will be delivered in partnership with C Level and the Synjuk (federation) of ten indigenous Khasi communities. …

The project will address deforestation and biodiversity loss but also the poverty facing rural families by working with the ten indigenous Khasi governments in villages across the region. Indigenous tree species, grown in community tree-seedling nurseries run by local women, will be planted as a special initiative within the larger project in the Khasi Hills, India’s first community-based REDD+ programme (the UN’s programme to guide sustainable forestry).

For more information, read the press release.
