Fullscript (Ottawa, ON, Canada) has announced it is now certified by Carbonzero as a carbon-neutral organization, offsetting emissions from Jan. 1, 2020 onwards.
Fullscript will offset approximately 3,364 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions in 2020 and will invest further in projects to directly reduce its carbon footprint as the company continues to grow. Going forward, any emissions that Fullscript can’t eliminate will be offset through investments in verified greenhouse gas reduction projects, such as those provided by Carbonzero.
“Fullscript is proud to be certified carbon neutral as of 2020. This is the first big step in our sustainability journey, but it’s far from the end, as we’re committed to continually reinventing our practices in the things that matter — to our health, and to the health of our planet,” said Fullscript CEO Fran Towey. “Together, we can tackle climate change.”
Climate change is a major threat to global health, and the company’s announcement represents a commitment from Fullscript to act as a leader in the health care industry on climate issues.
“Environmental conditions are key to a holistic approach to wellness. Climate change threatens key determinants of health such as clean air to breathe, safe drinking water, and access to quality food,” said Fullscript Chief Medical Officer, Jeffrey Gladd, MD. “Carbon-neutrality is an excellent example of proactive measures to ensure the health of our planet, and by extension, the health of our people.”
