CREDO Mobile Continues Carbonfree® Commitments for Tenth Year
Monday, 29 August 2016
Over the years, Carbonfund.org has been honored to work with some of the most innovative and environmentally responsible organizations in the world. One of these partners is CREDO Mobile, a social change company that offers top-notch products and services, including mobile services and credit cards.
CREDO Mobile is the first mobile phone company in the U.S. to join Carbonfund.org’s Carbonfree® Partner Program, to estimate and offset the carbon emissions produced from the company’s San Francisco headquarters electricity usage, employee business travel, as well as the carbon emissions from the shipping and lifetime electricity usage of each of its mobile phones.
This year, CREDO Mobile reaches its tenth anniversary as a Carbonfree® Business Partner. In the past ten years, CREDO Mobile has neutralized over 45 million pounds of greenhouse gases from its mobile phones and its operations. That staggering amount is equivalent to the carbon emissions sequestered by planting over half a million tree seedlings then growing that forest for ten years.
“Over three decades CREDO has contributed more the $10.7 million to the fight for environmental justice,” states Ray Morris, CREDO’s CEO. “Participating in Carbonfund.org is an important part of that commitment to working for a greener earth.”
As part of CREDO’s ongoing social and environmental commitments, a portion of all CREDO revenue is donated to progressive nonprofits working for women’s rights, the environment, equality, peace and social justice. Since 1985, CREDO has raised over $81 million for these groups, and their customers and activists help pick the groups and vote on how to distribute the donations.
The CREDO community also comprises a strong political force with more than four million activists who are passionate about making a difference in our world. CREDO makes it easier for them to have an impact by giving them simple ways to speak out on issues they believe in. As CREDO puts it, being green isn’t just a fad – it’s part of CREDO’s identity, fighting the green fight with dollars, deeds and voices for the past 31 years. Carbonfund.org is proud of our long-term partnership with CREDO, helping to ensure the company’s environmental commitments are realized.
