Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce employee commuting emissions from traveling to and from our offices. Currently the average commute is 15.45 miles per employee with very little carpool or alternative transportation being utilized.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to reduce employee commuting emissions by incentivising alternative modes of transportation. For employees that cannot take advantage of these options, we will look to create more WFH options to reduce the number of miles on the road.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce our energy usage per square foot by working with our landlord and our utility company to implement energy efficiencies within our building.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to work with our utility companies to find and implement efficiency gains within our building and reduce our energy usage per square foot by 20%.
