Why did you decide to carry out a GHG assessment? 🤔

We decided to carry out a greenhouse gas (GHG) assessment as part of our commitment to transparency, accountability, and sustainability. By understanding our emissions footprint, we can identify areas where we can reduce our environmental impact and make more informed decisions to mitigate climate change. Before calculating our emissions with Greenly, we had very little idea of our environmental footprint based on our operations, energy usage, and other factors. However, using Greenly not only provided us with a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of our GHG emissions across different scopes and activities but helped us implement various initiatives aimed at minimizing our environmental impact and contributing positively to society. These initiatives included waste reduction programs, energy efficiency measures, community engagement projects, and supporting sustainable practices throughout our supply chain.

Why did you choose Greenly? 💚

We chose Greenly for several reasons that align with our values and needs. Firstly, Greenly's origins and expertise in the Environmental space, aligned with the Paris Agreement, were appealing to us. Being aligned as closely as possible with the Paris agreement was a must for Merge.

Additionally, we were attracted to Greenly's approach and tools for carbon data management. Your platform offered comprehensive carbon calculators and reporting tools that made it easy for us to track and analyze our emissions across different scopes and activities. The user-friendly interface and robust features paired with our dedicated support (shoutout to Victoria Reypin) allowed us to generate accurate reports and insights and efficiently communicate our journey.

Overall, Greenly's tools simplified the process of GHG assessment and management for us, enabling us to focus on implementing strategies to minimize our environmental impact effectively.

Results and Insights 📊

Our carbon assessment revealed that our company emits 170.6 tCO2e per year across various scopes of our operations. This comprehensive analysis allowed us to identify key areas where emissions occur and prioritize action items to reduce our carbon footprint.

One significant action item recommended by Greenly is to focus on energy efficiency measures within our traveling policies and criteria. This includes reevaluating and creating policies on traveling within the company.

By reducing travel and streamlining through more virtual meets, we can directly decrease our emissions and lower our environmental impact.

One of the main lessons we have learned from this carbon assessment is the importance of data accuracy and transparency. Accurate data collection and analysis are essential for understanding our emissions profile and identifying effective mitigation strategies. Additionally, transparency in reporting our emissions allows us to hold ourselves accountable and communicate our environmental impact to stakeholders effectively. As a result of this assessment, we have implemented several changes to reduce our emissions and improve our overall sustainability performance.

These include:

1. Creating and sharing Sustainability Policy

2. Implementing a telecommuting policy to reduce commuting emissions.

3. Partnering with sustainable suppliers and vendors.

4. Engaging employees in sustainability initiatives and awareness campaigns.
