Concentric Advisors, a risk consultancy that specializes in delivering strategic security and intelligence services, has expanded its commitment to help reduce the global threat of climate change by joining the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program.
In an effort to reduce the firm’s carbon footprint, Concentric completed an extensive audit of the ways in which the company emits CO2, then teamed up with Carbonfund.org to offset carbon emissions from annual corporate commuting, travel and office energy consumption. Concentric’s donation to Carbonfund.org has neutralized almost 400,00 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions by supporting reforestation and forest conservation projects around the world.
“As a company, we are excited to be leading the way in the security industry by bringing awareness to the importance of sustainability as a security risk mitigator,” states Concentric Advisors Green Security Team. “By greening our business, offsetting our carbon impact and leading environmental security projects, we hope that our actions speak as loudly as our words.”
Moving forward, Concentric hopes to expand its environmental commitment to clients by offering a range of carbon neutral security services.
In addition to its carbon neutrality initiative, Concentric is a Gold Member of the Green Business Bureau, having implemented numerous initiatives to make its business operations less impactful on the environment. These include composting, recycling and energy efficiency. Concentric expects to achieve the Platinum Member level before the end of 2020 after completing new sustainability initiatives. In addition, Concentric continues to look for ways to engage in local community conservation and grow as a green security company.
Since 2017, Concentric has been working with forest rangers in Central America to amplify their conservation efforts with technology, training and strategic advice. Having proved that this innovative approach can make a real difference, Concentric is seeking new funding to expand and scale this environmental security work.
With national security origins woven into the firm’s Silicon Valley DNA, Concentric Advisors combines rare experience and innovative thinking to stay ahead of emerging threats. Trusted by some of the world’s most prominent individuals and corporations, the firm’s holistic methodology is grounded in analytics and a seamless approach to securing the physical and digital spaces, while operating as a carbon neutral and environmentally responsible business.
