We’re committed to operating in a sustainable way to reduce the impact of our business on the environment, while promoting the health and well-being of our people. We take our responsibility to the planet seriously, ensuring we make intentional choices on a day-to-day basis that inspire environmental awareness. Here’s how we’ve done our part.
Transportation & Remote Working
We support the RTD Ecopass scheme, enabling free travel to and from work for all of our staff via public transport. In 2018, 77% of our people commuted to work by public transport, biking, walking, or carpooling. We also provide a flexible work environment that allows people to work from home as needed. Our office-based staff typically work from home 1-2 times per month, while our remote staff work from home 100% of the time.
Recycling & Composting
We follow recycling and composting policies supported by our LEED-certified building, and we also have guidelines, training, and signs to promote recycling and composting best-practice in our office. Our Environmental Officer keeps us honest by making sure we’re recycling and composting properly. Wherever possible, we use recycled office and kitchen supplies sourced from sustainable forests. We utilize our building’s services for the proper recycling of hazardous materials like batteries and electronics. And for materials not supported by our building’s recycling services (e.g. plastic shopping bags), we take those to off-site facilities that can manage them. In 2018, our impact was significant. We recycled or reused 90% of our waste, producing only 500 pounds of trash.
Biodegradable, Chemical-Free, Organic Products
We make sure to purchase environmentally friendly cleaning supplies whenever possible in order to reduce chemical exposure in the office. This includes everything from unbleached paper towels and coffee filters to dish soaps and cleaning agents. For kitchen supplies, such as coffee, tea, sugar, milk, etc., we opt for organic, non-GMO, sustainably farmed products wherever possible.
