As world leaders convene today for the 2019 U.N. Climate Action Summit, we reaffirm our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
We also celebrate a special milestone: 12 years of operating as a carbon-neutral firm.
A little over a decade ago, we pledged to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a meaningful, measurable way. Through a concerted, global effort to scale back our business air travel, achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification for all of our design studios, reduce our use of paper products, and invest in Green-e Certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and carbon offsets, we succeeded in achieving firmwide carbon neutrality in 2007.
We’ve continued to reduce our GHG emissions as we’ve grown, too.
