DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) March 16, 2022
RelayOne (http://www.RelayOne.com), a leading surgical care team collaboration and coordination solution provider, today announced that it is now carbon neutral. Organizations that are carbon neutral offset the same amount of carbon as they produce. Working with Green Places, which simplifies sustainability for businesses with a software platform, RelayOne has offset 33 metric tons of carbon since 2021, which is equivalent to taking seven cars off the road.
“In Healthcare IT, most see technology at the heart of innovation – mobile, digital health records, wearable devices and more. RelayOne includes social responsibility and sustainability as core to its innovation journey because a sustainable approach to innovation is no longer optional to protect the health of patients and the planet,” said Cam Sexton, CEO of RelayOne.
RelayOne has achieved carbon neutrality primarily by providing cloud-based solutions, working remotely, limiting air travel, and hosting virtual meetings. Green Places helps to get organizations carbon neutral by helping its partners to track their footprint, reduce emissions, remove carbon, and tell their story.
“We believe every business can have a positive impact on climate change, and RelayOne is making a pledge and taking the steps to prioritize sustainability,” said Alex Lassiter, Founder and CEO of Green Places. “We are glad to be their chosen partner in this initiative, and we feel our platform and services will simplify the process and help them be truly successful.”
How it Works
Green Places helps to measure, benchmark, and keep a record of an organization’s footprint as they grow. The service comes with annual carbon assessments that can help organizations to understand their emissions.
The Green Places carbon calculator is fueled from research from University of California Berkeley's CoolClimate Project where they employ “consumption-based greenhouse gas accounting” – a comprehensive methodology used by governments, businesses and non-governmental organizations throughout the U.S. and internationally.
Then, Green Places gives organizations access to a library of strategies to help cut emissions, and its platform helps them to set, track, and document progress towards their carbon reduction goals.
Next, Green Places helps organizations to source high quality carbon credits to offset their impact.
Finally, Green Places helps organizations communicate their progress to employees and customers. They provide content, tools, and communication support to help make sure organizations are engaging all their stakeholders along their sustainable journey.
Sexton concluded, “Delivering value to our clients through innovative technology while reducing our carbon footprint allows us to feel even better about the contributions we are making to patients and healthcare providers.”
