|Sole Technology just got a little greener. In addition to the bicycle fleet program, we have recently implemented an alternative work week schedule for all employees. Sole Technology will continue to maintain its working hours, productivity and business coverage, all while saving employee's money on gas, auto costs and significantly reducing C02 emissions and lowering electricity usage.
In 2007 we set out to see how our business practices were impacting the environment by conducting an eco-audit, looking at every angle with a strong focus on carbon emissions, waste and consumption and water usage. In 2008 the results were in. Our findings led us to set the foundation to become carbon neutral by 2020 and continue to work towards sustainability in all our business practices.
We know that the process of going green is a journey. As many companies are just beginning to look into these areas, we are putting our plans into action. Our alternative workweek is helping us get one giant step closer to reaching our carbon neutral goal. Helping the environment while providing my staff more time with friends and family. I couldn’t ask for a better solution; sometimes it’s the little steps that can make a big difference.
