A business of any size can easily take action for the climate

Monday, February 15, 2021

As a small business owner, you have a lot on your mind. Never mind that we are living through one of the most turbulent times of our lifetimes, but that incessant pressure to grow, grow, grow rarely lets up for a moment.

So who has time to think about – let alone actually plan and execute – on extensive sustainability plans? That’s something you can think about when you’ve “made” it; when you can hire a Chief Sustainability Officer or at the very least, hand it off to an HR lead or a marketing manager, right?

Not necessarily. 

Consumers aren’t the only ones seeking out companies that act on the biggest challenges of our time. 

Action on sustainability – and the climate – is quickly becoming a key requirement for companies to attract anyone from new talent to investors. 40% of millennials say they have chosen a job because of company sustainability, and the top investors in the world are putting the call out for more action on climate.

Even B2B businesses, who have historically mainly been able to focus on cost and/or quality of work, are having to become more cognizant of how sustainability figures into their business decisions.

Don’t wait: Get started now with your climate journey.

Luckily, there is one easy place to start: your business’ climate impact.

In order to solve the climate crisis, we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere: That means cutting down on emissions, and removing the already excess CO2.

Calculating the carbon footprint of your business operations can help you understand where your emissions are coming from, where you can start reducing for the most impact – and begin removing the rest. Our partners Noli and Aie Cosmetics are two examples of how knowing more about your business’ impact can spur on climate action.

Compensate Plus lets you do just that: our new self-service offsetting tool lets you calculate your business emissions from flights, logistics, real estate, and digital services. Freely choose which calculations are the most relevant for your business, and get the first glimpse into what your business’ climate impact really is. 

Once you’ve done your calculations, you know where you can focus energy on reducing emissions. With the click of a button, you can also start your journey to carbon negative today by compensating for the emissions you can’t yet avoid.

Don’t wait until that magical moment in the future when you’ll have more time, more resources, more motivation. The climate, the planet – indeed, we – don’t have time .

So next time, when your customers, potential hires or investors ask how you are measuring your impact on the world, you can have an answer ready: We track and take action on our carbon emissions.
