With so much going on in the world today that is out of our control – working to build a workplace that is environmentally friendly is something we can control. Beginning with our partnership to go carbon neutral, but also from within the office on things like water filtration with reusable bottles, paperless work-flow and energy efficient lighting and appliances – we’re trying to take as many baby steps as we can so that they add up to a much bigger step going forward.

That's like taking 117 cars off the road, permanently.
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.
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.
This "Run of the Rivers" project allows energy harvested from flowing water to generate electricity as a renewable energy source. These hydropower plants provide power without causing airborne pollutants and help to displace power generated by harmful fossil fuels.
Launched in 2008, The Paradigm Project is a social enterprise providing products, services and opportunities that address basic human needs in the poorest markets of Africa. In Kenya, Paradigm created EzyLife - a company that distributes locally-appropriate, energy efficient cooking technologies to address the financial and environmental problems arising from open fire cooking and traditional stoves used in poor communities. The local jobs that have been created as a result of this project provide lasting benefits including reduced consumption of natural resources and positive impacts for women and girls. Paradigm became one of the first verified projects in the world in 2019 when its social outcomes were verified by an independent agency. Verifications have counted nearly 300,000 people positively impacted by the program, 6.2 million hours and over $3 million dollars in firewood costs saved.
Hudson Technologies is working to reduce the overall environmental impact refrigerants have on our world by reclaiming and reusing hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) - the most commonly used refrigerant and a powerful greenhouse gas when released into the atmosphere. Hudson processes used refrigerants to remove oil and water so that they meet specifications for new refrigerant gas, and once restored, they are used in the maintenance of existing and newly manufactured products. By reclaiming, recertifying, and reusing refrigerants - 400,000 lbs to date - this project is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste, and promoting a more sustainable means of HFC use and management.
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.
