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:
We’ve started to document the carbon output of the Uni, everything from truck miles, to server use, to local transit.
LED lightbulbs? Yup. Partnership with NYC DOT that cuts our trucking 50%? Huzzah! More social impact, less environmental impact.
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.
