Reduce

Convert.com is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • An internal carbon tax on all activities to finance a minimum of 100% offset

  • No more buying of "stuff"; swag and promos moved to local experiences or planting trees.
