Sustainability at Kevel

There’s a phrase, coined by John Elkington in 1994, called “triple bottom line” — the idea that a business should focus not just on profit, but its people and the planet as well. This is a key philosophy for Kevel. We aren’t truly valuing our employees if we aren’t helping to make the world they live in cleaner, safer, and sustainable. Indeed — we believe a commitment to sustainability should be a “perk” every company should include alongside insurance, time-off, etc.

Our Initiatives

Green Team

Green Team

Taking steps to help the environment is very important to employees and has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to keep them engaged with their company. A great way to increase employee involvement this is through the creation of a Green Team. This team is responsible for helping to lower a businesses carbon footprint while also picking new energy efficient practices to adopt in the office.

Tracking Emissions

Tracking Emissions

Knowing where you are is the best place to start. Our GreenPlaces Environmental Management system allows us to measure and track our footprint including Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Most recently we completed our 2021 Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report in accordance with GHG protocol.

Remote Working

Remote Working

Remote working can be beneficial to businesses and employees alike. At Kevel our remote working opportunities reduce travel time and emissions from daily commuting as well as reduce the need for larger office spaces that require energy to maintain. Working from home also can reduce waste and costs associated with building office supplies such as paper, ink, and single-use utensils while also minimizing general waste generation.

Klawock Heenya Forestry Project

On Prince of Wales Island in Alaska, the Klawock Heenya Project protects 8,600 forested acres, including 1,000 acres of old-growth forests with large, old trees that are virtually undisturbed by human impact and rich in biodiversity. Not only does this project increase sequestration capacity through tree growth, the protected forest also naturally filters its interconnected water systems and protects 40+ fish bearing streams, as well as beaches and wetlands where an abundance of wildlife thrive. The management of this forest for carbon also helps to ensure long-term sustainable governance for the local community, protecting and conserving the unique biological resources in the area for future generations.

Grid Connected Solar Project

Centered in the Charanka Village in the state of Gujarat, this solar grid project is the first of its kind for India. The solar plant produces 25 megawatts (MW) of electricity and is connected to the Indian electricity grid - meaning the country is diversifying its energy sources and creating a more resilient grid. Through the use of power purchase agreements, nearby residents and workplaces can choose to have their energy sourced from this sustainable energy solution.

Burnt Mountain Natural Area

This project, which is overseen by The Nature Conservancy, is centered around the conservation and protection of Burnt Mountain Natural Area. Burnt Mountain Natural Area is a 5,408-acre forest plot that will remain “forever wild.” “Forever wild” is the highest available legal protection for land in the United States, meaning that the forest must be protected in its natural condition in perpetuity.

Kootznoowoo Forestry Project

The Kootznoowoo Project protects 20,159 acres of forest located on the Dolomi and Dora Bay stretches of Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. 8,000 acres of this project are classified as an old-growth forest - forests with large, old (alive and dead) trees that are virtually undisturbed by human impact. These forests serve as an ecological staple to local animals and nearby communities. This project is unique because it is owned by the native Haida and Tlingit people, who have inhabited this land for over 1,000 years, and managed alongside the United States Forest Service. This joint protection responsibility ensures that indigenous territories are protected and natives voices are heard. This land is home to twelve fish bearing streams and is saturated with various types of berry bushes that are historically significant in the Dolomi and Dora Bay.

New River Landfill Gas Methane Destruction Project

The New River Solid Waste Management Facility is an active municipal solid waste sanitary landfill in Dublin, Virginia. The landfill opened in 1997 and annually accepts on average 150 tons of municipal solid waste. The project consists of an active landfill gas collection and control system (GCCS) in Area A of the facility. The GCCS consists of 16 vertical extraction wells. The Landfill Gas (LFG)was originally flared, but since 2008 an electric generation station has been installed that receives the LFG. With yearly non-methane organic compound (NMOC) emissions of 24.1 Mg, the landfill is not required by EPA regulations to reduce emissions.

IdleAir Emissions Reduction Project

This project supports 118 Advanced Truckstop Electrification (ATE) locations across the U.S. ATE is an idling reduction solution that allows a driver to completely shut down the main propulsion engine of the diesel truck, eliminating all of the air pollution associated with diesel engine idling. This helps reduce the carbon emissions from engines that would otherwise be idling to keep the cabin comfortable during rest stops for drivers.

49.5 MW Wind Power Project

This project supports the creation and operation of wind turbines in multiple regions in Pakistan which ultimately supply power to the grid. The total installed capacity of the project activity is 49.5 MW equipped with 33 WTGs of 1.5 MW installed capacity each. Prior to this project, the only source of energy in the region was fossil fuel intensive. The project activity is expected to reduce emissions of GHGs by an estimated 91,085 tCO2e per year by displacing equivalent amount of the electricity from the grid.

Pacajai REDD+ Rainforest Project

Based in the state of Para in northern Brazil, the Pacajai REDD+ Project aims to prevent the deforestation of native rainforests that can typically be attributed to unregulated harvesting, illegal land clearing, and other human activities. Since its start in 2008, the project has supported local community resource management, provided energy efficient cook stoves for those living on project land, helped educate on pasture and cattle management, and much more. Along with these initiatives, the land boundary is continuously monitored to help identify and prevent any further deforestation or illegal activities.
