Small Businesses

Quality, transparency, and the highest standards.

Carbon emissions are a big deal even for small businesses. A typical office based business can generate 1 – 6 metric tons of carbon emissions per employee per year1. Top sources of emissions include air travel, commuting, heating, electricity and waste disposal. Given the large number of small businesses, that adds-up to a major driver of climate change.

 

Many small businesses want to be more sustainable, but they don’t have the time or budget to hire an army of consultants. That’s where terrapass comes in. We make carbon footprinting and reduction accessible to everyone. Our online tools and products help small businesses take the same steps as major corporations:

 

Measure: The terrapass Carbon Footprint Calculator can estimate carbon emissions based on a small amount of business information

Reduce: Our Blogs offer numerous recommendations on opportunities for improvement

Balance: Terrapass Carbon Offset Products reduce carbon footprint by funding projects that destroy emissions

Market: Our Partner Page recognizes businesses who take climate action and our Badge Program helps businesses promote their accomplishments to customers and other stakeholders

 

Or, an easier option is our Balanced Business Plan, a one-step solution for carbon footprint reduction based on the number of employees in your business.
