Nonprofits are polluters too.

Nonprofits like the Uni Project need to lead the fight against climate change. The first step: admit you have a problem. Here’s the carbon footprint of our NYC programs in a nutshell. 

  • Office and Storage 45% 45%
  • Trucking 30% 30%
  • Staff Transportation 20% 20%
  • Materials and supplies 5% 5%

Here’s our plan:

Measure

We’ve started to document the carbon output of the Uni, everything from truck miles, to server use, to local transit.

Reduce

LED lightbulbs? Yup. Partnership with NYC DOT that cuts our trucking 50%? Huzzah! More social impact, less environmental impact.

Offset

What we can’t eliminate through efficiency in our org, we’ll offset by investing in projects that cut greenhouse emissions elsewhere.

Repeat

Carbon offsets are not our way of saying “we’re done.” Rather, “we’re working on it!” Our goal: get more efficient, offset less each year.
