Ocienteers Take Action: Empowering Change through Green Service Days in 2023

By Rashel Masters, Senior Documentation Manager at Ocient

The time is now and it’s urgent! Ocient is committed to making a positive impact on the environment and has prioritized supporting the United Nation’s sustainable development Goal 13 to take action and combat climate change.

Our dedication to aligning with Goal 13 for climate action goes beyond mere words. By encouraging employees to actively participate in service days, the company showcases its commitment to playing an active role in addressing the climate crisis.

So far this year, Ocienteers have harnessed their company-sponsored volunteer time to make a difference in their local communities. From trash pick-ups and beach clean-ups to planting trees and clearing trails, these dedicated employees showcased their unwavering commitment to safeguarding the planet for future generations.

Chris Gladwin and Jeremy Bacon at the Forge

 

Chris Gladwin, CEO of Ocient and Co-Founder of the Forge, and Jeremy Bacon, Co-Founder of the Forge, came together to plant a bur oak for Earth Day 2023. Their collaboration symbolizes the power of collective action in tackling climate change. By participating in this tree-planting initiative, they demonstrated their dedication to preserving green spaces and actively contributing to the restoration of the environment.

Jenna Boller with daughters

 

Jenna Boller, Senior Director of Marketing at Ocient, took an innovative approach to environmental education by co-leading a 12-hour outdoor skills day for her Girl Scouts Troop. During the event, Jenna taught the principles of “leave no trace” and other essential outdoor skills. By engaging the young minds of her daughters and fellow scouts, Jenna instilled a sense of responsibility and stewardship towards the environment, ensuring that the next generation is well-equipped to address climate challenges.

Brenton Edwards and Eric Barrett pick up trash

 

Brenton Edwards, Senior Security Engineer at Ocient, recognized the importance of acting locally to have a global impact. He took the initiative to pick up trash in his neighborhood, contributing to the preservation of local ecosystems and preventing litter from reaching water bodies. Brenton’s commitment to his community sets an example for others to follow and proves that every individual can make a significant difference in the fight against climate change.

Luiza Tollkuci’s new landscaping

 

Luiza Tollkuci, Senior Human Resources Generalist at Ocient,  showed that no act is too small as she landscaped an area in her front yard. She planted lavender and drought resistant bushes. Climate action is not limited to grand gestures but encompasses every thoughtful and purposeful step taken towards a greener future. Each action, no matter how small, adds up to create a substantial positive impact.

Whether in my work or at home, I’m always looking for ways to help create a more sustainable future. I lead the Climate Action employee network at Ocient and recently took part in an event to help keep where I live in Massachusetts beautiful.

The combined efforts of Ocient employees in our various service day activities are the building blocks of a cleaner and more sustainable world. By sharing their experiences and outcomes, Ocienteers encourage others to step forward and contribute their time and energy to the cause. When collective action becomes the norm, the impact on climate change can be transformative, creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond any single organization.

Thanks to these dedicated employees who are actively shaping a more sustainable and livable world for future generations. Their actions remind us that the fight against climate change is a collective effort, and it is only through such collective action that we can forge a path towards a greener and brighter future.
