What does it mean for a company to be carbon neutral?
If a company is carbon neutral, they are offsetting their carbon output by absorbing carbon elsewhere. For many companies, this can involve committing to tree planting all over the world, in order to absorb carbon from the atmosphere.
How does becoming carbon neutral benefit the environment and our company?
Being carbon neutral benefits the environment by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere. At the same time, companies that adopt carbon neutrality practices often find that it helps to improve their reputation and brand image, increase customer loyalty, and attract environmentally conscious consumers. Additionally, being carbon neutral can reduce costs by improving energy efficiency and reducing waste, which ultimately benefits a company’s bottom line.
What steps is our company taking to reduce its carbon footprint?
Marsh Finance is proud to be two years carbon neutral, and this is only the start for us. We recently entered into a partnership with Gift-a-Tree, where we have purchased trees and will plant one for every loan we write! This is not the end however, as Marsh look to venture further into environmental care and awareness.
How does a company become carbon neutral?
A company becomes carbon neutral by reducing its carbon footprint and offsetting any remaining emissions. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Measuring the company’s carbon footprint, which includes calculating the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced through its operations and supply chain.
- Reducing emissions by implementing eco-friendly practices, such as using renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, reducing waste, and optimizing supply chain operations.
- Offsetting any remaining emissions by investing in carbon offsetting projects, such as reforestation or renewable energy projects, that remove or reduce the same amount of emissions from the atmosphere.
- Regularly monitoring and reporting on the company’s carbon footprint and emissions reduction efforts to ensure continued progress towards carbon neutrality.
