Levitate’s mission to make the world a more creative and entrepreneurial place includes our commitment to caring for it. Our team is focused on building a sustainability strategy that can scale alongside our business, and partnering with Green Places was a no-brainer. With thousands of small businesses now using our platform, we have a unique opportunity to demonstrate how accessible sustainability efforts can be no matter what size your business may be today. We’re proud to make the Green Pledge and join a community of like-minded companies willing to take action.
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!
We have chosen a digital payroll provider and opted into paperless services. This reduces our paper and ink usage, while also eliminating the possibility of additional paper waste when documents are no longer needed.
Having an inspiring mission that gets you out of bed every morning comes with the territory at Levitate. We’re passionate about helping our customers grow their businesses, and it shows. We move fast, work hard, laugh a lot, celebrate each other’s successes and leave our egos at the door. You won’t find a better crew to spend your days with. It’s no wonder our company’s not-so-secret legal name is Real Magic—we create it every day.
