Image Group Goes Carbon Neutral
A leader in the Promotional Products industry
Vancouver, British Columbia December 6, 2018: Image Group Inc., one of the largest Canadian Promotional Products Distributors, has become Carbon Neutral.
‘We shop locally for our customers whenever we can, and when we source internationally we seek out suppliers that share our values. But as our company grows freight can too.’ says Laura Hansen, President.
How did we do it?
‘Climate Smart trained and coached us on how to measure our carbon emissions. With their guidance, we established an emissions reduction plan,’ says Barbara Yung, Team Lead. Image Group is a Climate Smart Certified company. ‘We have taken this initiative one step further and committed to being carbon neutral beginning with our 2016 emissions. We purchased carbon offsets though Offsetters who invest in high quality greenhouse gas reduction projects with verifiable climate benefits’.
How do we make a difference?
* We understand our carbon footprint
* We reduce emissions wherever possible
* We offset greenhouse gas emissions that cannot be reduced or eliminated
Image Group customers want to buy from suppliers that value sustainability—especially those demonstrating climate and renewable energy leadership. By launching our carbon management program, we are combining business success with positive impact on the environment and society.
