Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from employee commuting by implementing a Hybrid Work Policy that allows employees to elect into being remote-based.

How We'll Reduce It

We will define in the Hybrid Work Policy that remote-based employees are not required to work from the office. This decrease in commuting to the office will lower carbon emissions from employee traveling to work (Note: This is compared to normal commuting

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from company purchases by implementing purchasing guidelines for employees to use to create greener purchases.

How We'll Reduce It

We will outline within our purchasing policy best practices to consider, including both preferred green-conscious vendors (i.e. Climate Neutral) and best practices on how to purchase items in a sustainable manner (i.e. bulk purchases)

In Progress Reductions

01

100%

What We’re Reducing

Reduce emissions from data stored in AWS data centers. Data storage emissions (from AWS data centers) are currently from non-renewable energy sources. We will explore options for transitioning our data to a data center powered by renewable energy.

How We'll Reduce It

1. Deep dive the type of power used in our current data center 2. Identify options for setting up new instances in clean energy-powered facilities and/or moving data 3. Develop a CBA for moving data.

02

25%

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from business travel by decreasing carbon emissions related to domestic and international travel.

How We'll Reduce It

1. Obtain input on which type of travel is most impactful and essential 2. Review travel policies and create a framework for consolidating travel 3. Research additional transportation options 4. Communicate updated policies across company
