Boardroom Workplaces Reaches Milestone as Ten-Year Carbonfree® Partner
Monday, 14 May 2018
The Boardroom Workplaces is an alternative workspace provider in Denver, Colorado that provides ready-to-use office space, virtual office services, conference room rentals, advanced telecommunications and administrative support services. In addition, Boardroom Workplaces maintains strong environmental commitments, including energy conservation efforts throughout their office suite, office- wide recycling efforts to minimize landfill deposits, being located in a LEED – Silver certified building and encouraging commuting reduction by offering virtual office & remote access capabilities.
A typical office space is used less than 50% of the time. That means that there is a huge amount of waste associated with a typical office – heating, cooling, electrical, janitorial – all of that just gets wasted in a standard office. Added to that, a centralized office in a central business district, or elsewhere, forces many workers to engage in a lengthy and highly-polluting commute.
In a coworking or virtual office environment all of that changes. A shared office environment allows workers to choose to work from locations closer to home or even from their home office on a day-to-day basis, but still maintain a professional image that allows them to sustain their business operations. This eliminates the carbon emissions associated with those lengthy and unnecessary commutes.
“The Boardroom Workplaces furthers these carbon emission reduction efforts by engaging in energy conservation efforts through our suite (reducing what we can) and aligning ourselves with Carbonfund.org to offset our estimated yearly carbon emissions (offsetting what we can’t),” confirms Nathan Jansch, President & Owner.
The structure of most coworking facilities also help reduce emissions by making use of space (and resources) more effectively. Instead of having an office suite that is used by 1 person 50% of the time, coworking centers and virtual offices provide shared amenities and encourage maximum utilization of space and resources – thereby reducing the per-worker carbon emissions that the suite emits.
As a Carbonfree® Business Partner for the past ten years, Boardroom Workplaces has neutralized almost three-quarters of a million pounds of greenhouse gases with donations to Carbonfund.org that support projects that conserve energy, produce renewable energy or protect critical forestlands around the world. This impact is equivalent to mitigating the carbon emissions produced by combusting 39,500 gallons of auto gasoline.
The sustainability-focused structure of Boardroom Workplaces, along with ongoing commitment to carbon-neutral operations, sets Boardroom Workplaces apart as a leader in environmentally responsible business operations. Carbonfund.org is proud to continue our long-term partnership with Boardroom Workplaces.
