Our environmental impact is a critical part of making ourselves a force for good. The climate crisis is an issue that affects everyone everywhere, exacerbating existing problems and deepening inequalities. As a mission-driven company, we understand our mandate to address our impact on the environment however we can.
Part of this work occurs with clients. Companies look to Spaulding Ridge for advice on how to address their toughest business challenges, and as a result, we’re well-positioned to help clients measure and reduce their environmental impact. Spaulding Ridge has introduced the concept of SE&OP™, giving companies a framework to manage their environmental goals alongside their other mission-critical objectives.
We also live this belief in our own work. We are currently bringing the same thoroughness we bring to our clients to our own operations, looking at the impact of travel, purchasing, facilities, and more on our own company’s carbon footprint. We have already transitioned to being an almost entirely paperless company, and we will soon release a plan to reduce our own carbon emissions.
Our beliefs as a company are reflected in how we work, and in who we work with, but we also see the need to directly support the causes that matter. As a result, Spaulding Ridge not only encourages but requires volunteerism among employees. All employees are required to perform at least 12 hours of community service every year. Spaulding Ridge provides opportunities for bandmates to get involved with local organizations, and we encourage our bandmates to serve in volunteer leadership roles.
We also recognize the need to provide financial support towards causes that matter. Spaulding Ridge has committed to contributing one percent of our revenue each year to organizations that serve their communities. We select organizations that align with our values to support grants, and we encourage our bandmates to recommend organizations that they care about for funding.
