“Working with One Tree Planted aligns with Teckro’s ethos of making a difference in the world,” said Gary Hughes, co-founder and chief executive officer fewer face-to-face visits. This partnership allows us to plant trees to recognize the sustainable successes achieved with our platform.”
One of the best ways to combat the harmful effects of climate change is to plant trees. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitat for more than 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Furthermore, since trees are a key component of 25% of all pharmaceuticals, reforestation is important to the biopharmaceutical industry.
“We are delighted to have Teckro’s support of our reforestation project in Ireland,” said Matt Hill, Founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist of One Tree Planted. “We admire the company’s commitment to protecting the environment and the clinical trials industry raised awareness of the importance of restoring ecosystems.”
The partnership will make it easy for users of Teckro’s research centers and biopharma customers to contribute to reforestation. Teckro will initially support the 200,000 Trees project in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland as part of its commitment, where the trees will be planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers. Teckro may then later, over time, provide funding for additional projects in other regions where there is an urgent need for reforestation. You can read more about the partnership in a blog by Gary.
Recognized as one of the fastest growing clinical trials software companies, Teckro digitally connects investigators and research staff, study teams and observers with each other and provides them with the knowledge they need when they need it. Thousands of investigators and more than 31,000 research sites around the world trust Teckro to conduct clinical trials. Teckro works with emerging biotech and global biopharmaceutical companies across all therapeutic areas, study phases and study formats – traditional clinical trials, distributed clinical trials or hybrid study formats.
