SYLVIS Continues to Reduce Emissions

Thursday, March 8, 2018

Did you know that SYLVIS is a Climate Smart Certified Business?  We participate annually in the Climate Smart program which provides us with the tools to monitor and manage our carbon emissions.  We work closely with our Climate Smart Advisor to calculate our emissions and develop plans for emissions reduction. 

SYLVIS just completed our fifth annual carbon inventory, providing us with the data needed to identify internal sources of CO2 emissions which can be reduced or mitigated through proactive measures.

Since SYLVIS began working with Climate Smart, we have focused on reducing our emissions through:

  • Decreasing our paper consumptions and moving towards electronic systems;
  • Reducing our garbage production by creating an improved recycling system; and,
  • Mitigating our travel within offices.

From 2014 to 2017, we have reduced our emissions by 18%.  SYLVIS looks forward to continuing to improve on our carbon emissions reductions year over year.
