Annual Carbon Assessment

Annual Carbon Assessment

Knowing where you are is the best place to start. We are proud to work with Green Places to understand our impact on the planet. Green Places’ methodology - developed and supported by top climate institutions like UC Berkeley - calculates a business’ carbon footprint, identifying the total emissions our business is responsible for producing, and using (directly and indirectly). Understanding our emissions allows us to be strategic about the next steps we take on our climate journey!
Remote Working

Remote Working

A number of our team members work from home. Remote working can be beneficial to businesses and employees alike. Having a remote workforce reduces travel time and emissions from daily commuting as well as reduces the need for larger office spaces that require energy to maintain.
Air Travel

Air Travel

According to experts, 3-4% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States come from commercial air travel. While there are several promising solutions to reduce travel emissions on the horizon, there are also ways companies can fly smarter right now. The first step is to determine exactly what warrants business travel and eliminate any travel that can be deemed unnecessary. When booking flights, businesses can commit to use Google’s flight carbon calculator and choose flight paths with the least emissions. Combined, these practices are cost saving and better for the environment, lowering overall emissions and eliminating unnecessary travel.
Go Paperless

Go Paperless

Paper makes up about 25% of landfill waste, so being mindful about paper usage is a great step for climate action. This is why all of our document storage and client communications are 100% digital.
