Kodak Alaris and veritree announce agroforestry restoration partnership 

by Madaline Dunn

Kodak Alaris has announced an agroforestry-focused partnership with veritree, a restoration platform that connects businesses with verified tree-planting projects. 

Agroforestry is an approach that integrates diverse elements, including trees, crops, and sometimes animals, to create a “sustainable ecosystem,” the company explained. 

According to the two, the partnership will see 40,000 trees planted this year in East Rwanda to help repair damage caused partly by unsustainable farming practices that have resulted in soil erosion and landslides. 

In addition to this, the partnership is also aimed at:

  • Providing 800 working days for local Rwandan farmers as they reforest 16 hectares
  • Increasing access to nutrition by over 700 per cent
  • Reducing severe food insecurity for Rwandan farm families from 56 per cent to 8 per cent.
  • Sequestering 2,174 carbon tonnes.

“Our purpose as a company is to give businesses the tools they need to digitize, simplify workflows, and enable paperless strategies,” commented Jay Mathewson, Environment, Health & Safety Manager, Kodak Alaris. 

Adding: “Through lifecycle design, we’re reducing environmental impacts associated with our products – but we seek to do more. The partnership with veritree complements this mission, allowing us to actively contribute to reforestation and rebuilding ecosystems through sustainable farming practices.”
