Kevel: Sustainability Report

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.

Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neutral

Since 2021, we've offset 654 metric tons of carbon - that's like taking 142 cars off the road, permanently. 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.
Recurring Commitment

Recurring Commitment

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.
Remote Working

Remote Working

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. 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.
Annual Carbon Assessments

Annual Carbon Assessments

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!
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.

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.

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.

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.
