Corporate and Personal Responsibility

As a sole proprietor, I have a business and personal responsibility to give back to my community and society in general. Environmentalism is something that I feel is one of the most pressing issues of our time, therefore I concentrate my efforts on causes that benefit the environment locally and globally.

1% for the Planet

I have been a member of 1% for the Planet since 2018. This means that one percent of all of my income goes to one of their certified environmental charities.

Carbon Offsets

The efficacy of carbon offsets are sometimes disputed. After doing my own research, including this episode of Planet Money, I made a commitment to purchase offsets for every flight I take, whether for business or personal purposes. Because doing something is better than nothing.

I do not pass this expense on to my clients.

I have been working with Better Environmentally Sound Transportation since 2011. They are a non-profit focused on social enterprise as a means to advocate and provide means for more sustainable transportation and walk-able neighborhoods in the Vancouver, BC metro area.

I have served as a board member, secretary, vice chair, and chair. I also regularly volunteer with their Bicycle Valet service on a seasonal basis.
