Whiteboard is proud to announce it has committed to become Climate Neutral Certified. The company will be working with Climate Neutral, an independent non-profit organization that helps companies measure their carbon footprint, offset it in its entirety by purchasing quality carbon credits, and reduce emissions moving forward.
Climate Neutral has set rigorous certification standards that all companies must meet before being granted the Climate Neutral Certified status. Once all three steps have been completed, certified brands can use the Climate Neutral Certified label on products, packaging, and marketing materials. The label shows consumers and stakeholders that a brand is committed to taking immediate steps on climate action.
“Consumers today are yearning for evidence that companies are aware of their contribution to climate change and committed to erasing it,” said Climate Neutral CEO Austin Whitman. “We’re thrilled to have Whiteboard commit to this journey. Soon they will join our growing list of certified companies that are proving that we’re living in a new era of leadership on climate by top brands.”
"For Whiteboard, the decision to join this movement reflects our commitment to environmental stewardship. Since 2018, Whiteboard has partnered with EPB's Solar Share program that enables our office in Chattanooga to be powered by 100% clean solar energy. We're now renting 100 panels from the solar farm." said Eric Brown, Whiteboard Co-founder and CVO.
He continued: "Now we get to take our commitment to the next-level by offsetting and reducing all of our greenhouse gas emissions. We thrilled to join the ranks of other companies we admire such as Kickstarter, Allbirds, Avocado Green Mattress, and Nisolo Shoes who've also made this commitment."
