Kivuto Solutions Inc., global leader in complex digital distribution, is announcing its continued partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation for the fourth year in a row. The partnership signifies Kivuto’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment through both its green distribution solutions and dedication to reducing its carbon footprint while offsetting the rest.

Kivuto has chosen to support Reforestation and Forest Preservation projects, which fight climate change by sequestering CO2 emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil and improve local environmental quality.

For over 15 years, Kivuto has provided a green alternative for product distribution by eliminating the need to create and deliver boxed offers; providing an electronic distribution model that allows for effective and efficient delivery online. Studies have proven that using digital distribution solutions instead of traditional distribution methods can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 83 percent for a single product. Kivuto estimates that the approximately 30 million digital downloads Kivuto enabled for its customers over the past year reduced carbon emissions by approximately 42,000 metric tons.

This commitment goes beyond Kivuto’s green business model and carbon offsetting initiatives.   Kivuto’s employees continue to promote green alternatives on a daily basis and implementing company-wide initiatives for a more environmentally friendly workplace. Initiatives include recycling programs, campaigns to clean local communities, reducing waste at company lunches through reusable dishes and more.

Kivuto is looking forward to continuing its efforts to deliver green solutions, offset carbon emissions, take on new initiatives and become part of a greener community.

OTTAWA, Ontario — April 14, 2015 — Kivuto Solutions Inc., the global leader in complex digital distribution, is announcing its continued partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation for the fourth year in a row. The partnership signifies Kivuto’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment through both its green distribution solutions and dedication to reducing its carbon footprint while offsetting the rest.

The Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner Program supports third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and hasten the transition to a clean energy future. Kivuto has chosen to support Reforestation and Forest Preservation projects, which fight climate change by sequestering CO2 emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil and improve local environmental quality.

“Carbonfund.org commends Kivuto Solutions for their continued leadership in managing their environmental impact, looking for ways to reduce and conserve energy consumption, then neutralizing their remaining annual operating emissions through support of our forest preservation programs,” says Eric Carlson, president of Carbonfund.org. “Their long-term commitment to environmental responsibility places Kivuto Solutions at the forefront of its industry for operational sustainability. We’re proud to partner with them in these efforts.”

For over 15 years, Kivuto has provided a green alternative for product distribution by eliminating the need to create and deliver boxed offers and offering an electronic distribution model that allows for effective and efficient delivery online. Studies have proven that using digital distribution solutions instead of traditional distribution methods can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 83 percent for a single product. And estimates show that the approx. 30 million digital downloads Kivuto enabled for its customers over the past year reduced carbon emissions by approximately 42,000 metric tons. This is a significant savings that Kivuto is truly proud of.

This commitment goes beyond Kivuto’s green business model and carbon offsetting initiatives; Kivuto’s employees continue to promote green alternatives on a daily basis and implementing company-wide initiatives for a more environmentally friendly workplace. Initiatives include recycling programs, campaigns to clean local communities, reducing waste at company lunches through reusable dishes and more.

For students growing up in the digital age, life, work and school, is interconnected. Learning inside and outside the classroom is connected through the use of tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices ensuring easy access to essential learning resources anywhere, and at any time.

Kivuto is looking forward to continuing its efforts to deliver green solutions, offset carbon emissions, take on new initiatives and become part of a greener community.

The electronic delivery of software applications, rather than mailing physical DVDs and CDs for manual installation on computing networks and workstations, is an important component to reducing operational emissions.  Recent studies have calculated that replacing traditional distribution of DVD/CD disk kit software with Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) can result in at least an 83% reduction in carbon emissions. 

CarbonFree® Business Partner Kivuto Solutions offers green software distribution solutions through ESD, enabling users to download software and avoid the carbon emissions attributable to product packaging and shipping.   Previously known as e-academy, Kivuto seeks to maximize software availability for organizations by reducing the total cost and environmental impact of software distribution. 

But Kivuto decided it was important to do more and wanted to join the national movement of businesses and organizations that are leading the fight against global warming.  Recognizing that its own operations still created a significant carbon footprint, Kivuto took the proactive step to calculate its annual operational emissions.  Kivuto then chose to partner with Carbonfund.org to mitigate its emissions by supporting Reforestation and Forest Preservation projects that absorb carbon emissions now and for years to come.  

Electronic software delivery may be part of a lower carbon world, but IT systems use a tremendous amount of electricity.  Carbonfund.org encourages companies to follow examples set by business partners such as Kivuto to take the next step towards operational sustainability by supporting carbon sequestration projects, energy efficiency innovation and renewable energy source development.
