Our shift to carbon neutral with our partner Climate Smart was another logical step. It means a greener economy in BC with local best in class certified offset projects. This is our stake in the ground by which to measure our performance.
Carbon Neutral Operations
Our Carbon Neutral Operations are focused on creating a benchmark for us to measure the positive physical and environmental changes that we have accomplished. Our decision to shift to Carbon Neutral in 2009 was made initially because it was the right thing to do as good corporate citizens. Then, it quickly became clear that the benefits were very business focused. We track and inventory Carbon Output, Energy Consumption, Transportation, and Consumables. After extensive research into the offset market, we partnered with Climate Smart and Ecotrust Canada to measure and provide premium local offsets. We chose our partners with an understanding that we will benefit from a greener economy in BC with the local best in class certified offset projects in our back yard (Cheakamus Community Forest Project).
Our partners and clients recognize the need for a strong environmental business focus. They look to MET for guidance and best practices with their communication needs.
MET is a “Climate Smart Champion” with the task of sharing our experiences with our partners to reap the benefits of Carbon Neutral Operations and employ an effective green strategy.
We are raising awareness with our clients to help us all grow our economic ecosystem and develop a better place to live and work. We have developed a Mitigation Strategy to reduce our Carbon Emissions; within this strategy, we recognized many areas where we were able to save costs as well as benefit from ongoing initiatives: MET Fine Printers’ Ancient and Endangered Forest Conservation Vision and Eco-Paper Procurement Policy.
