About a year and a half ago, Carbonfund.org became a virtual work environment, eliminating all business office space energy usage and employee commuting emissions. This move to a virtual work environment has proved successful from an operational standpoint and from an environmental commitment to reducing emissions wherever possible.
Carbonfund.org enjoys partnering with other businesses that maintain virtual work environments and endeavor to deliver their products and services in the most environmentally-responsible method. One such Carbonfree® partner, JazzEDge made the transition to online piano lessons and instructions over four years ago, as part of their commitment to maintaining an environmentally-sensitive business practice. By providing piano lessons online and through DVDs, JazzEDge provides students with instructional options that eliminate the carbon emissions caused by driving to and from lessons, and replaces printed sheet music with online options to view or print only those pages needed.
Carbonfund.org has helped JazzEDge augment its commitment to sustainable business operations through the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program. The annual support of Carbonfund.org’s carbon reduction and clean air projects enables JazzEDge to achieve carbon neutrality in the rest of its operations.
“We understand the importance of protecting the environment, and how what we do today will affect our kids and our students’ lives. Carbonfund.org is a great catalyst to this effort because of all the tools they provide to assist you in your environmental commitment,” explains Willie Myette, JazzEDge President and Berklee College of Music graduate.
Carbonfund.org welcomes the opportunity to partner with JazzEDge. A business that strives to “reduce what you can” in daily operations, then neutralizes the remaining carbon emissions is a business that Carbonfund.org can get behind.
