Doing Our Part for the Community
Hello from Sycamore,
We are pleased to announce that Sycamore Financial Group is now carbon-neutral, powered by renewable energy, and supports efforts to restore damaged freshwater sources.
We worked with Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to help us calculate and balance the environmental footprint we create. There are three main categories where we create an environmental impact: carbon emissions, water usage, and energy usage. We need to consume some resources to operate, and we cannot directly restore what we use, partnering with an organization that can fund these restoration projects at a large scale was necessary.
Through the purchase of Green-e Energy Certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), we have ensured that our electricity use comes from renewable resources. Verified Carbon Offsets purchases have balanced the greenhouse gas emissions associated with all of our office locations, employee commutes, and business travel. Water Restoration Certificates® purchases have restored water to critically dewatered rivers and streams equivalent to at least the annual water consumption at our office locations.
All of us rely on Earth to survive and there is no planet B, we feel it is vital to help do our part for the community at large. We believe that helping take care of our fellow neighbors and the world that we depend on will help ensure that we all have a clean and healthy place to live.
Our purchases are the equivalent of powering 18.5 average U.S. homes for the year, restoring 19,200 five-gallon water cooler containers, and reducing emissions associated with 169,647 vehicle miles traveled.
We are happy to be doing our part and would gladly supply you with information on how to accomplish the same thing. You may be surprised at how little it might cost to offset your household or business for a full year. If you have any questions, as always, do not hesitate to reach out.
Thank you for your business and trust,
Sycamore Financial Group
