Our 2025 Corporate Environmental
Carbon Footprint Reduction Goal in our Operations
By 2025, our operations will be carbon neutral. We will reduce the impact of shipping, travel and waste disposal by 50%.
Our 2019 operations audit of Scope 1 and 2, which was conducted by an environmental impact consulting firm, confirmed that our Canadian factory was emitting 251 metric tons of CO2. This is less than 2 metric tons per employee. We are achieving our impact reduction by investing in new and efficient machinery. Today, we are continuing our production with one of the world’s most renewable energy sources, hydropower (HydroQuebec).
70% of our carbon footprint in Scope 3 is attributed to shipping. Altrum now offers carbon-neutral shipping for your designs, worldwide.
Carbon Footprint Reduction Goal in Our Offerings
We will offer design and product alternatives that are environmentally friendly.
We are transitioning to the lowest impact alternative materials available for our custom deal toys and awards. Altrum now has partnerships with gifting suppliers that offer sustainable products.
