Global education technology company Promethean has upped its green credentials by reducing its carbon footprint and achieving carbon-neutrality.
It achieved the goal through the purchase of carbon offsets, which included investing in a community wind farm project in Tamil Nadu, India, that focused on reducing local greenhouse gas emissions by replacing fossil fuels with renewable power.
Promethean also improved its overall outbound transportation model to cut emissions by 30% and reduced packaging to increase transportation efficiency by 20%.
In addition, the company provides Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling programme internationally in the UK, France and Germany.
Lance Solomon, CPO at Prometheans said: “With the impending climate challenges, we have set ambitious targets to reduce our overall impact on the environment.
“We are dedicated to setting a corporate standard with initiatives to affect global change. We are proud to have achieved carbon-neutrality and aim to do even more by setting the goal of reducing our carbon footprint by an additional 25%. We understand that being a good corporate citizen includes addressing global challenges head-on.”
