Doing Our Part: Embracing Environmental Stewardship
Wisetail | 4 min read
Happy Earth Day from Wisetail! Our team is excited to celebrate this day, because we believe that taking care of our planet is not only our responsibility, but an amazing opportunity to be a positive force for change. That’s why we’re committed to promoting sustainable practices and partnering with organizations that share our values.
We believe that environmental stewardship is an opportunity to be the positive change that we want to see in the world, and we are proud to be part of a community committed to creating a more sustainable future. Our efforts can be summarized in three key areas:
Our parent company, Intertek, aims to improve environmental performance across operations, and has aligned their business with the Paris Agreement, to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and reach net zero by 2050. To assist and align ourselves with these progressive goals of carbon neutrality, we reduced Wisetail’s carbon footprint by reducing our physical office space and embracing remote work initiatives. Majority of our Wisetailers are now fully remote, or work hybrid schedules!
Additionally, our Wisetail Works Grant’s mission strives to help people live healthier, happier, and more productive lives. We full-heartedly encourage nonprofit organizations and those that support conservation to apply for our grant.
Finally, Wisetail is proud to partner with the National Forest Foundation, which in 2022, planted over 8 million trees in 51 national forests. Over their lifetime, the trees planted in 2022 will store more than 4 million metric tons of CO2! To support the Foundation’s campaign to plant 50 million trees, Wisetail will continue to donate our resources to stabilize forests and rehabilitate natural ecosystems.
We are thrilled to be part of a broader community that is committed to creating a more sustainable future. If you would like to help support our efforts for environmental conservation, please click here to learn more about the National Forest Foundation’s campaign to plant 50 million trees.
