Everledger Business Practices and Energy Goals

At Everledger, we have offset CEO travel since 2018. Additionally, we measure our team’s global travel to expand offset and investment in long-term climate benefits. For Earth Day 2020, we began the campaign “Be Enviro Smart” to incorporate energy saving at home and at the office. 
 
Our Ethical purchasing criteria: 
  • Company Values
  • Product lifecycle Management
  • Materials/Production Standards
  • End-of-Life recycling opportunities 
  • Carbon offsetting or renewable energy
  • BCorp status or contribution of 1% of the planet.

We have estimated the Wood, Water, Money and Time savings by going digital in our transactions. These calculators are available for many sustainability practices and activities. We utilized the calculator available through Docusign.

How we incorporate Sustainability

At Everledger, we develop sustainable products alongside our customers utilizing the Circular economy framework.

Additionally we participate in activities that make our corporate practices more efficient, and provide educational opportunities for our staff to become sustainability champions at home. We offer a host of opportunities for our team members to continue to manage their work-life balance and have a meaningful impact on their communities.

In 2019, we piloted a number of independent and regional volunteering programs and continue to actively pursue volunteering opportunities for employees to participate in that align with our corporate sustainability goals. 

We have also seen a number of employee-led community engagement initiatives delivered over the last year, most recently including efforts to fundraise for the Australian wildfires relief and two Italian hospitals in critical need of medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Energy Use and Sustainable Business Practices

Sustainability is at the fore-front of our culture at Everledger. 

For us, it operates via two vectors: the impact enabled by our products and services, as well as our internal programmes.

The SDGs Today

Our solutions are built on not only advanced technology, but also deep knowledge of industries, rooted in corporate citizenship principles. We work together with partners to increase their value – more responsibly, more sustainably and more efficiently.

 

Today, the Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DSDG) in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) provides substantive support and capacity-building for the SDGs and their related thematic issues, including water, energy, climate, oceans, urbanization, transport, science and technology, the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR), partnerships and Small Island Developing States. DSDG plays a key role in the evaluation of UN systemwide implementation of the 2030 Agenda and on advocacy and outreach activities relating to the SDGs.

 

In order to make the 2030 Agenda a reality, broad ownership of the SDGs must translate into a strong commitment by all stakeholders to implement the global goals. DSDG aims to help facilitate this engagement.
