C&S Companies has announced its partnership with The Good Traveler Program to reduce the firm’s carbon footprint related to employee air travel. Building on years of experience working with airport clients to decarbonize the aviation industry, the company says it is excited to continue and deepen their commitment to corporate sustainability. As a national firm with offices and clients across the country, C&S recognizes that travel is a crucial part of their business. Whenever possible, technology is used to conduct virtual meetings. For the company’s most important engagements that require travel, they seek to mitigate related impacts through the purchase of high quality, verified carbon offsets.
For 2019, C&S has purchased credits to cover 1,031 metric tons of carbon dioxide—the equivalent of nearly 5.8 million passenger miles flown, or the carbon dioxide produced by the electricity required to power more than 180 homes for a year. The company is specifically investing in impactful projects across the United States located in the regions of The Good Traveler’s airport partners, therefore supporting projects where there frequently fly. These projects include renewable wind energy generation, forest management and restoration, grasslands conservation, and truck stop electrification.
The Good Traveler Program was initiated by San Diego International Airport in 2015 and is managed by the nonprofit Rocky Mountain Institute. Learn more about The Good Traveler program at thegoodtraveler.org.
