How McCall Media is Carbon Neutral
There are a number of reasons a company can become carbon neutral. Here at McCall Media, one of the most obvious reasons is that we are a digital company and we work from home. This means we save costs and the pollution levels of having an office building. Although working from home still emits some carbon dioxide, we don’t make that level any higher by having another building with carbon being emitted. Power consumption goes down because there are lower electricity bills.
As well as this, we do not have to commute to an office. This means fewer emissions because we don’t need to drive anywhere or use public transport to travel.
Next, because we are a mostly online business, every way that we operate is through digital. This means that we don’t use paper to print anything out and there is a massive decrease in waste documents.
Although this is only a small impact, there is often less plastic usage. The reason for this is because there are less plastic cups and lids being used for coffee, and food delivery services are cut down. As well as this, bottles being used dramatically decreases if you are at home working instead of being out-and-about.
Finally, working from home could also provide employees with opportunities to create a more positive impact on the environment. The reason for this is because home workers often have extra time – meaning they can take steps to better the environment. Maybe planting trees, or composting in your garden. Perhaps cleaning rubbish up in your local park.
