VonChurch Committed to Being Green through Being Carbonfree®

September 11, 2014

For the past five years, San Francisco-based VonChurch, the leading recruiting firm specialized in helping digitally focused companies evolve, has achieved one of its many commitments – to “being green” – in part through its Carbonfree® Business Partnership program with Carbonfund.org.  Each year, VonChurch makes a donation to Carbonfund.org to neutralize their estimated annual operational emissions.

“It is crucial we continue to take part in taking care of our environment,” explains Nicole Ossey, HR Director of VonChurch.  “The partnership with Carbonfund.org helps us do that because of information and programs they provide, which are able to support the goal of our company to be a Green Certified Business.”

To date, VonChurch has neutralized over 800,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to the emissions created by driving a standard passenger car almost 875,000 miles.

Founded in San Francisco in August 2008, VonChurch is committed to preserving the environment. Not only is the firm offsetting emissions for its office energy usage and its eleven employees, but they also offset emissions from flights that they initiate when recruitment candidates fly to meet VonChurch clients.

Additionally, VonChurch participates in the San Francisco Green Business program, a non-profit organization that establishes rigid requirements to ensure green business practices.  These commitments to “being green” keep VonChurch at the forefront in the recruiting industry as an environmental leader.
