Going carbon neutral with Carbonfund.org

September 1, 2021

Eastern  is committed to fostering awareness within our organization that we have a direct impact on the environment. With that awareness comes responsibility—to do whatever our team can do to minimize our carbon footprint. Within our own organization, Eastern has implemented standards to minimize consumption, limit wastefulness, and bolster efforts to re-purpose resources whenever possible.

“For the balance of energy that cannot be minimized, limited or reduced, Eastern has recognized the importance of replenishing spent resources. Our team has been actively seeking ways to offset that footprint. We genuinely value giving back to the environment for whatever resources we have consumed and aligning with Carbonfund.org has provided a responsible and proactive way for Eastern to fulfill this commitment.”

—Eric Wagner,  President

We are currently supporting the Envira Amazonia Project. It’s a REDD+ project (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) that protects nearly 500,000 acres of tropical rainforest. Funds for this project will help reduce millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, preserve natural habitat, and benefit indigenous communities.
