The company will measure and offset its 2021 carbon emissions and commit to reducing future emissions
BOSTON, MA (July 11, 2022) – As part of its ongoing commitment to protecting the environment, MindEdge Learning has committed itself to becoming Climate Neutral Certified. Following the standards created by Climate Neutral, a leading environmental nonprofit organization, MindEdge will measure its carbon emissions annually and begin investing in a combination of projects inside and outside of its operations to reduce future emissions.
“For more than two decades, MindEdge has reduced the environmental impact of educating millions of learners, through its delivery of online courses and simulations,” said Jefferson Flanders, president and CEO of MindEdge. “With today’s decision, we will take action to reduce our carbon footprint even further.”
“We see this commitment as part of meeting our responsibilities to MindEdge’s stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, learners, educational partners, and the community,” he added.
Climate Neutral certification standardizes the meaning of climate neutrality, so that consumers can know that all certified companies have met the same standard for action. Certified brands display the Climate Neutral Certified label on products, packaging, and marketing materials, for as long as they continue to measure, offset, and reduce their emissions on an annual basis. The label shows consumers and stakeholders that a brand is taking immediate climate action.
