At Futurist.com we know that it takes a lot of travelling to fulfill all the duties of a world renowned speaker such as Glen. We have recently taken action to offset all of the carbon that his travelling produces in addition to offsetting the emissions of the rest of our business. Using the carbon calculator at Carbonfund.org we estimated that Futurist.com generates a total of 32 tons of carbon. Carbonfund.org estimates that most small businesses generate 35 tons, so to be on the safe side, we chose to offset a full 35 tons. In doing so, we are proud to share that we have become a CarbonFree Partner of Carbonfund.org. All proceeds of Carbonfund.org are used to fund unique, third-party verified projects in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation. We encourage you to join us in offsetting some or all of your own carbon emissions with this great non-profit.
