Farallon’s San Francisco office has committed to offsetting its carbon footprint for a second year. We are excited to announce support for the below projects for the period covering July 2019 – 2020, totaling an offset of 649 metric tonnes of CO2e.
With the help of our employees, the carbon-neutral program expanded to include emissions from employee commuting, in addition to energy consumption and corporate travel. While we continue to monitor our carbon footprint, we will seek ways to reduce in areas that we can, and offset what we cannot.
