Through this effort, DataBank will support The Arbor Day Foundation’s goal of planting 100 million trees in forests and communities worldwide.

DataBank will donate $7,500 to the foundation in congruence with the construction of DataBank’s 200,000 square foot facility in Northern Virginia. The new facility, IAD3, will be built on the DataBank-owned land adjacent to its current site in Ashburn, VA.

“The Time for Trees initiative is not only increasing awareness around one of the world’s most critical environmental issues, but it is also improving the quality of life for generations to come,” said Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “We feel honored to support the foundation and this important initiative.”

The Time for Trees initiative will address the critical loss of forests through active replanting efforts in areas as geographically and biologically diverse as the tropical rain forests and the iconic California national forests. Equally important, it will reach towns and cities around the globe to reduce tree gaps resulting from natural disasters, disease, insects, and development – creating a greener, healthier, and more sustainable communities. The Arbor Day Foundation is uniquely positioned to lead this movement due to its strong partnerships and widespread access to public and private land.

DataBank’s IAD3 facility will incorporate the latest modular design and energy-efficient technologies available today and demonstrates DataBank’s commitment to building environmentally sustainable data center solutions. An area rich in fiber connectivity and tech talent, Northern Virginia has a high concentration of enterprises, technology, cloud computing, hyperscale cloud providers, and content providers that require dense interconnection and proximity to best-in-class data center infrastructure.
