Our Social Responsibility

Katalyst Technologies have over 1200 employees with operations in North America, Asia, and Europe, and are committed to operating responsibly throughout the world. Our previous Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives have been in a variety of important areas which include Diversity and Inclusion, Education and Training, Community, Ethics and Compliance, Health and Safety, and Environmental Sustainability.

The individual actions of our employees make a difference, by helping their fellow employees, and by being good citizens in their communities. We all contribute whenever we turn off unused lights, follow safety precautions, volunteer in our communities or solve client problems. We take these actions not because we must but simply because we care. We want to create positive results in the world, and we are given choices and opportunities to make a difference. When all of our efforts are reviewed, they reveal our ongoing commitment to operational and social responsibility to make this world better together.

We are proud of all our efforts towards building a sustainable society, but we are most proud of our efforts where we helped create a ‘lunch shed’ for a Government school in a village in India and most recently our efforts of being able to provide freshly prepared meals for people battling Cancer in association with Culinary Care.

You Plant We Plant Impact

We plant matching trees for every Tree growing kit that companies give to their community, teams or customers. Our nurseries in developing countries like Tanzania plant and take care of these trees as they grow into a forest. We also plant more when people name their Trees on ForestNation.

For every 1000 matching trees ‘We Plant’:

  • 25 tons harmful Carbon Dioxide is offset per year
  • 100 tons of Oxygen is created per year
  • 40 hours of employment is guaranteed for local people
  • 1 hectare of degraded land is reforested

For every 1000 Trees ‘You Plant’:

  • 1000 people are connected to nature
  • 8 hours of work created for our Tree kit makers

We use locally harvested tree seeds in each Tree kit, so people can nurture home grown trees. Each kit is handmade with love by local Tree experts. Every element of the Tree kit is either compostable of biodegradable, leaving zero waste behind.

A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide per year. That translates to 25 tons of CO2 absorbed per year for 1000 trees. To put this in perspective, around 25 tons of CO2 is emitted per year by 5 passenger vehicles.

Please note that the CO2 aborption per year is a weighted average. This is because trees have low CO2 absorbing capacity in their early years, peaking as they gain maturity and then slowing down as they grow older.

You can learn more about the calculations here.

On average trees produce 4 to 5 times the amount of co2 they sequester each year depending on the species. So we are basing our CO2 number as a conservative estimate at 4 times.

We plant 1000 trees per hectare as a general standard of reforestation and agroforestry practices. This allows for adequate space for the trees to grow naturally as part of the forest.

It takes 68 hours for 1 person to create 10000 tree seedlings. Then approximately 1 hour per day to maintain every 1000 seedlings.

All this translates 40 hours of work created at our nurseries for every 1000 trees.
