Benton Consulting Group has been offsetting its emissions with Carbonfund.org for the past two years. As a 1% For the Planet member, their donations for carbon offsets are the equivalent to the CO2 emissions from over 21,000 gallons of gasoline consumed or the carbon sequestered by nearly 5,500 tree seedlings grown for ten years! Today we congratulate Benton Consulting group for their commitment to offsetting their carbon footprint and being a two year CarbonFree Partner with Carbonfund.org. In addition to their offsetting, Benton Consulting Group focuses on productivity consulting. Their productivity system and methodology produces measurable increases in individual and organizational performance and satisfaction by altering how people think about, approach, and manage their work. They have helped organizations such as Boeing and Microsoft increase conversions, reduce meeting times, and recover numerous hours per day. So what does this mean for the environment? Let’s take one example: their systems helped reduce time spent on email and the number of messages in their inbox. According to a report by McAfee and ICF, the average carbon footprint of one email is .3 grams of CO2. A year’s worth of email at a typical medium-sized business can use a whopping 50,000 kWh. Benton Consulting Group is not only saving businesses time, money, and sanity, but they’re helping reduce our energy need. Learn more at Benton Consulting Group.
