We aspire to drive growth that benefits all our stakeholders, from our limited partners and colleagues to our portfolio company management teams and employees, as well as our local communities. We’re data-driven and understand that growth must be achieved in an environmentally sustainable fashion. By reducing our carbon footprint, investing responsibly in companies advancing important ESG principles, and using and sharing data to track our progress and continuously improve our processes, we are taking action to create a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future.
Being carbon neutral means your carbon emissions are balanced by carbon negative projects to eliminate your impact on the environment. Research shows that sustainable businesses have an advantage over others. By becoming a carbon neutral business, you can help fight climate change, increase your company value, improve employee recruiting and retention, build brand loyalty, attract more customers and improve the overall community. Investing in carbon negative projects offers a effective solution to take action against emissions from essential business operations that can't be eliminated.
A recurring commitment to sustainability provides your customers, employees, and prospective employees with proof that your company is working towards a better planet for all. This commitment can include quantifiable goals set by your company and transparency on emissions and business practices.
Knowing where you are is the best place to start. Green Places uses methodology developed and supported by top climate institutions like UC Berkeley to calculate a business’ carbon footprint, identifying the total emissions your business is responsible for producing, and using (directly and indirectly). Understanding your emissions allows companies to be smart about what next steps they take on their climate journey!
