Other Sustainability Notes

At BE Ultimate, we recognize the gravity of climate change and we realize, as a company, there are no sidelines in the fight against it: either you fight against or you are contributing to the problem. For us, in 2019, when we first took our steps towards becoming Certified Climate Neutral, we knew that the only way to build sustainability into our company's DNA was to structurally shift how we make decisions. Since then, we have focussed on optimizing our processes, product, and experience not only with the mindset of what is good for our clients and what is good for the company but also with the mindset of what is the right thing to do for the environment. As we have embarked on this journey, one of the most rewarding parts about building a company grounded in sustainability is the support that we have received from our communities as we build our company into a force for good. We could not do it without the community that we serve and are grateful every day that we can continue to contribute to the world in a positive manner.
