Etherlive have always had a focus on our carbon footprint with several initiatives to minimise it. This year we have signed up to reduce our carbon footprint by 10% through 10:10, a voluntary organisation aimed at reducing both personal and business impact on the environment.
Working a lot in the outdoor environment we certainly want it to remain as beautiful as it is now!
10% may be ambitious for a growing company but it is achievable. The methodology of the program means the 10% is relative to your business growth.
We are continuing to develop our solar options and high efficiency equipment but for the purpose of 10:10 our primary focus is reducing transport and mileage. Some of the things we plan to do include:
- Bringing less vehicles to event sites through better planning and transport sharing
- Where possible working with partners at event sites to reduce infrastructure, setup and power draw
- Ensure that when in a particular area for customer meetings we meet several!
The 10:10 pack has some great ideas how you can help your business or personal life have less impact on our planet – have a look.
