The payments technology leader has reduced carbon emissions by 1,741.000 tonnes this year
PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Payments technology leader North Lane Technologies (North Lane) today announced it has been named a “Certified Carbon Fighter” by Cool Effect, the Bay Area based 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on fighting the climate crisis.
North Lane has partnered with Cool Effect since 2019 to offset the company’s carbon emissions. Cool Effect invests in carbon reduction projects that protect and regenerate the world’s forests and improve ocean health. With carbon and temperature levels rising to unsustainable volumes year after year, North Lane is committed to expanding its corporate sustainability efforts and impact.
North Lane offset its entire 2020 carbon footprint, a total of 1,741.000 tonnes. The contribution offsets carbon emissions from all travel, including commuting, in both 2020 and 2021. The daily commuter emits 20.6 tonnes of carbon annually, so North Lane will continue to encourage and actively support remote work as well as additional ways to reduce the company’s overall carbon footprint in 2021.
“As responsible global citizens, the employees of North Lane feel it is our duty to support efforts to protect and preserve the planet,” said Seth Brennan, CEO of North Lane. “We knew offsetting our carbon footprint was an important and immediate step we could take to become a more environmentally conscious company and join in the critical efforts to slow climate change.”
