Reduce

FIRMA Branding & Innovation is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • A big part of our emissions come from fuel and energy-related activities, so we will partner with a power supplier that offers 100% renewable energy and optimize our electricity consumption by establishing a regime for the use of equipment in our facilities

  • We will also establish new mobility policies to help reduce our business travel emissions, like prioritizing video-conferences over face-to-face meetings, planning the most efficient travel routes, prioritizing partners that offer a fleet of electric vehicles or substituting flights with train trips if distances are 700km or shorter.

Other Sustainability Notes

For Firma this journey started when we realized we could leverage our position as a global branding agency working with clients across sectors to help create purpose-driven brands that look after the planet. But first, we had to evolve into a more sustainable business ourselves. Climate Neutral is one of the steps we're taking to accomplish this exciting goal.
