Rally Neutralizes Business Air Travel Emissions with Carbonfund.org Foundation

May 06, 2020

RALLY is an issue-driven communications firm that takes on sticky and political social problems and finds ways to push them forward. RALLY has committed to offsetting all of their air travel as part of their commitment to reduce our climate-changing emissions and advocate for environmental and climate justice everywhere.

RALLY is well versed in the environmental space, having worked with organizations like Earthjustice, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Nature Conservancy, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation to combat climate change and protect our natural environment.

“We are very excited about our partnership with RALLY and their commitment to offsetting their air travel,” said Eric Carlson, President of Carbonfund.org Foundation, “RALLY is working to make a significant impact on mitigating climate change by supporting the Russas-Valparaiso projects and protecting over 170,000 acres of pristine rain forest.”

The Russas-Valparaiso Projects are payments for ecosystem services forest conservation projects, otherwise known as a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) projects, protecting slightly more than 70,000 hectares (173,152 acres) of tropical rainforest. The Russas-Valparaiso Projects shall mitigate the release of approximately 3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, while also preserving the habitat for an extraordinary amount of biodiversity and directly benefitting local communities.

“I’m proud of the work RALLY does in partnership with our clients, including environmental and environmental justice organizations who make a positive impact on their communities and the world. Inspired by their work, we know that business-as-usual must change. Our work in social justice, reproductive justice, educational equity and environmental justice takes RALLYers around the US. These are worthy causes for air travel, but it comes at a steep cost to our climate future. To do less harm in a changing climate, we committed to reducing what air travel we can and offsetting what we can’t. We are excited to partner with a respected organization like Carbonfund.org who consistently acts as a force for good.” – Hillary Moglen, Principal, RALLY

We wish RALLY the very best going forward on their corporate sustainability endeavors.
