As a CarbonFree™ Business Partner, Audubon Lifestyles is offsetting its carbon footprint through the support of Carbonfund.org’s reforestation projects. This commitment establishes Audubon Lifestyles as an environmental leader devoted to the Principles for Sustainability as outlined by the International Sustainability Council (ISC) and demonstrates the proactive steps Audubon Lifestyles is taking in the fight against global climate change.
Audubon Lifestyles is dedicated to improving the energy efficiency of its operations and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. As a "virtual" business, Audubon Lifestyles provides digital marketing strategies when possible, and its decentralized team approach reduces the daily need for transportation to and from an office building. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, partnering with Carbonfund.org enables Audubon Lifestyles to offset the remaining carbon emissions that could not be avoided.
"Audubon Lifestyles is committed to assisting businesses, organizations and individuals develop good-earth policies and sustainable lifestyles practices that help to offset carbon emissions," said Eric Dodson, Chief Technology Officer for Audubon Lifestyles. "It is imperative that each one of us reduce and offset carbon emissions if we are going to achieve the goal of developing sustainable lifestyles where we live, work and recreate."
"Audubon Lifestyles already understands how urgent the need is to make sustainable lifestyle changes, and now it's setting a great example by offsetting its own carbon footprint," said Eric Carlson, Executive Director of Carbonfund.org. "It's a testament to the commitment of Audubon Lifestyles to its sustainability practices, and we’re thrilled to help the organization go CarbonFree."
