We founded Green Places because we believe every business has the power to make a difference, and we’re here to make sustainability something that small and mid-sized businesses can achieve by simplifying impact, and empowering businesses with easy tools and science-backed solutions.


You can think of us as the Chief Sustainability Officer for tens of thousands of businesses, in that we focus on 3 critical services:


  1. Calculating your footprint

  2. Offsetting and reducing your footprint

  3. Helping you tell the story


But that’s not the whole story -- small and mid-sized businesses are the backbone of our economy, making up nearly 50% of US GDP. In the march towards a more sustainable planet -- small businesses lack the tools and resources to effectively manage & reduce their footprint. 


By building tools for small businesses that make it simple, and easy to be sustainable -- we can harness the power of many to drive global impact. 


Also, the data tells us that reducing your carbon footprint isn’t just good for the planet; it’s good for business. An HP Workforce Sustainability Survey found that


"61% of office workers viewed sustainability as a “must have” in their place of work -- and 40% would look for another job if their company didn’t have sustainable business practices."


This means that sustainability is becoming a requirement for businesses to compete for top talent. 


Our goal is to help these businesses achieve sustainable goals quickly and easily. Our service is a simple step every business can take. 


Even in our first three weeks, we’re seeing that message resonate. Before our official launch, we offset over 25,000 metric tons of carbon and helped over 25 businesses become carbon neutral. That’s equivalent to taking over 5,000 cars off the road each year. 


We are proud of our progress to date, but our journey has just started, and we’d love for you to follow & share our progress as we help small businesses across the world be more sustainable.


Please share our message with others and encourage them to do the same.
