03 Reduce

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

  • We'll be offsetting the plastic in our supply chain so that it's responsibly removed from the waste stream, and helping our suppliers to do the same, transitioning to less wasteful packaging.

  • Simple Switch's internal team will be working on reducing our own footprint, including increasing offsets of personal travel, better waste diversion, and more.
