Climate Action

Contribute to a sustainable future for people, planet, and prosperity through responsible and innovative practices.

Internal Culture: 

We aim to help our planet avoid the 1.5 degree celsius global warming threshold. We are also committed to preparing for and mitigating any climate threats already set in motion. We continuously educate through newsletters and live events.

We are following the seven mileposts laid out by The Utah Roadmap created by the University of Utah. The goal is to help Utah lead out on climate and air quality issues.

Renewable energy and energy efficiency has cut our carbon footprint by 16,141 metric tons of CO2 since 2008. This equals 40 million car miles not driven (Pledge 7: Energy Conservation). There is still a lot of work to be done here.


External Partnerships: 

We are accountable for our scope 1/2/3 carbon emissions and work with many partners to address our negative impact (procurement vendors and local networks such UCAN).

We offer clients carbon reduction strategies such as serving a plant-based meal during an event or building carbon offsetting strategies for the attendee travel footprint.

We support the Sustainable Development Goals and are working on zero carbon/zero waste (Pledge 12: Zero Waste) goals. Scope 1 CO2 emissions to be carbon neutral by 2030!


New Targets: 

We hope to develop a carbon tracking tool similar to that of our landfill diversion tool, so that we may begin tackling our negative carbon footprint. Scope 1 will be addressed by 2030 and scope 2/3 emissions being addressed by 2040.

We are developing a plan for carbon reduction strategies and offsetting what we can’t reduce (look for this in 2021).

We want to learn more about climate justice, believing equality to be a key piece to climate action/mitigation. We are connecting with experts on the topic to learn more.
