Sustainability is vital for any company going into the future, and here at Portable Protection, we’re no different. We’re putting a focus on sustainability in the coming months and years of our operation as we seek to join efforts to make the world a better place for generations to come.
Why is sustainability important?
In recent years, people have been going through far more resources than can be replaced. Although we are gradually going through a shift towards renewable energy, it’s a shift that isn’t going to be fast enough to completely reverse the path of climate change by itself. That’s why businesses, such as Portable Protection, need to act and reduce carbon footprints to become more sustainable in the long run and do our part to look after the planet we all rely on.
What are we doing to help?
Portable Protection are using a couple of routes to offset our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, firstly by using the Offset app. The Offset app calculates the amount of CO2 released per shipment, and charges companies per shipment to offset these emissions by giving the funds to causes that have a net negative carbon footprint. These programs include Pachama’s project to conserve forests in Brazil, which benefits more than 2400 species of flora and fauna.
By taking part in these projects, Portable Protection is able to proudly say that we are doing our part for the environment, and by offsetting our carbon emissions we are taking responsibility for any environmental damage that we are responsible for. These are major steps which, if adopted by international companies all around the world, will begin to turn the tide of climate change and improve the world for generations to come.
What can you do?
As a customer, one important step is to choose sustainable and responsible stores and businesses. This will mean that all of your purchases are accounted for, and you won’t need to worry about your decisions having a negative impact on the world around us. If everyone took steps to make the world a better place in all of their decisions, sustainability would be one of the first steps on the road to cleaning the world up.
If you’re interested in supporting carbon-free businesses, Portable Protection is dedicated to supporting environmentally-friendly measures in the years to come, to play our part in protecting our planet.
