The Climate Registry is a non-profit organization administered by the U.S. States and Canadian provinces and territories that "empower our generation to reduce its carbon footprint." Working with companies around North America, their greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting programs help pinpoint excessive and unnecessary carbon emissions.
Through the Climate Registry Information System (CRIS), Nexant is pleased to report that over the last 6 years we have been on a downward trend. In addition to helping lower our carbon footprint each year, The Climate Registry supports Nexant in applying offsets that match or exceed our CO2 output.
Minimizing CO2 emissions is an important part of Nexant's sustainability initiative. This past year Nexant and its employees have taken steps and accepted challenges to decrease their carbon footprint. On an annual basis Nexant sends the Green Office Scorecard to qualifying global offices where each office's Sustainability Coordinator reports on sustainability efforts. The scores are based on a point system of greening activities, for example purchasing 100% recycled paper, having occupancy sensors for lighting, providing vegetarian lunches, providing recycling bins, and/ or purchasing other green office supplies.
Offices organize sustainability challenges such as "The Straw Challenge" and "The Take Out Challenge" to help motivate and reward employees who are striving to live sustainably and minimize their own waste outside of the office. Some Nexant offices recently started composting and have plans to achieve zero waste in 2019. Nexant's Energy & Chemicals Advisory also trains industry experts on sustainability in plastics.
"Nexant has passionate, forward-thinking employees that take sustainability seriously. We couldn't achieve this milestone without the consistent effort and interest of our employees, leaders, and sustainability coordinators. I'm excited for our 2019 plans and continued membership with The Climate Registry," said Nexant CEO, John Gustafson.
