Did you know that VitalMetrics has been carbon neutral since 2014? At VitalMetrics, we believe in reducing the environmental impact of not only our clients, but also our own operations. This holiday season, we have invested in 50 tonnes of carbon offsets that protect the Alto Mayo rainforest in Peru! The Alto Mayo Conservation Initiative works to prevent deforestation by helping local Peruvians and illegal loggers pursue more sustainable and economic ways of using their valuable land resources. Read more about the carbon offset project here.
As an environmentally-conscious company, we aim to continually take steps to improve our sustainability wherever possible. The VitalMetrics team took the initiative in 2013 to calculate our own carbon footprint (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) and verified the results through a third party. For the past three years, we have achieved carbon neutrality by purchasing offsets from TerraPass. With 2013 as our baseline, our current goal is to reduce size-adjusted greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020. This year's offsets will help us maintain carbon neutrality for the next two years.
