Paris Neutralizes Corporate travel Emissions

In Paris, there is the conviction that reduce environmental impacts is a corporate responsibility and also a person-level responsibility.

To reduce the company’s impact, first of all the carbon footprint was measured, this in order to make a more efficient energy consumption by the company.

Thus, Paris has been taking steps to make a corporate example of the change of attitude that is expected in the whole team. In this transition to a greener corporate behavior, hoping to alleviate the impact of our business on a general level, is that Paris has neutralizes corporate travel emissions,where all corporate flights carried out by members of our team are offset through the purchase of carbon credits equivalent to GHG emissions associated with these flights.
