Newport Environmental Activity News “We are all environmental committee members”
We don’t have one division focusing environmental sustainability. All of employees are committed to achieve more sustainable business outcomes by evaluating the environmental impact and also sharing best practices to each other.
One of the activities we all participate is to contribute to forest conservation by offsetting CO2 emissions from our commute, travel, product shipment, and warehousing. We measure an amount of emission of each activity and compensate for it with absorbed amount of CO2 in the forests where forest conservation organization More Trees (http://more-trees.org/) implement sustainable forest management projects which promotes tree thinning. We all know knowing our CO2 emission rate and taking an action to reduce environmental impact is normal, nothing special. We think this is common sense.
