Carbon Neutral Status
NGS Global Americas recently announced that it has achieved carbon neutral status, the first search firm to do so. A comprehensive measurement of sources of carbon emissions such as business travel and external service providers has allowed NGS to not only offset past emissions, said the firm, but to make more sustainable choices for the future. The effort, spearheaded by Steve Lavelle of NGS Global U.K., has already led to direct investment in renewable energy sources and reforestation projects, as well as a comprehensive review of all key service providers.
“Through this important initiative, driven by the insight and vision of Steve Lavelle, managing partner of our London office, we will do our part to become a truly sustainable global organization,” said Mr. Nosal. “While we do not have a large carbon footprint, finding ways to reduce it even further is a worthwhile goal. Throughout our 34 offices, efforts are underway to adopt principles and practices to reduce carbon emission, including evaluating our suppliers based on their carbon emission status and making direct investments into renewable energy projects for our offices.”
