At 8 Billion Trees, we recognize that mistakes can happen… no one is perfect all of the time. But, we strive to ensure that all the content published on the website is both accurate and original.
Because false information can quickly spread, our editorial and writer teams work to fact-check content before publication. We also monitor the inaccuracies and/or complaints committed by individuals to provide additional training or disciplinary measures, when applicable.
Correction Processes Include:
- Following the Fact-Checking Policy Procedures in the event of a complaint or incident when any content is deemed incorrect.
- Detail exactly what was inaccurate, why, and provide a clear correction immediately, along with dates and a record of the correction.
- Issuing a real apology for the mistake, and acknowledging wrongs.
- Follow due prominence practices, giving the correction the same emphasis as other content published on the website.
Making mistakes is a part of human existence, so we encourage readers to reach out to 8 Billion Trees if they see something inaccurate or are concerned about any published content.
