Ezoic, an AI-driven technology platform for digital publishers, has announced the company has achieved net zero carbon emissions.
It has successfully offset its annual carbon dioxide emissions produced by its operations around the globe, as well as servers that host more than 35,000 client domains that use its website monetisation platform.
The company launched a corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme in 2021 and committed to supporting two of the 25 UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) – climate action and quality education.
Ezoic started by reducing single-use plastics, composting food waste, recycling broken electronics and donating to the Ocean Foundation’s verified Blue Carbon programme.
It also partnered with Supercritical to calculate its overall carbon footprint and invested in three high-impact programmes certified by the organisation to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
They include an afforestation programme in East Africa, a biochar project focused on net-negative technologies that remove carbon at an industrial scale and an enhanced weathering project that is one of the first large-scale trials on enhanced weathering on land.
Ezoic is also seeking to help its customers take action and reduce their carbon footprint.
Emily Brennan, Ezoic Corporate Social Responsibility Director said: “We’re planning a calculator to help our customers estimate their overall carbon footprint and enable them to purchase carbon removal credits themselves. Our long term goal is to be the vehicle to Net Zero for all digital publishers.
“It can be overwhelming for individuals to think of ways to alleviate the world’s biggest challenges but corporations such as ours have the resources and network required to make an impact. Our CSR goals are to drive climate action and develop educational programs that help people start their own online business.”
