Bird's Climate Change Impact: C
Bird currently does not power their corporate building using 100% green renewable energy. This means the electricity used contains a mix of electricity generated by non-renewable means. This may include fossil fuels, such as coal. Today there are many different electricity providers offering green generated renewable electricity.
Becoming carbon-free is one of many ways to become an eco company.
If Bird was to become a carbon-negative company will not only cover its outgoing carbon dioxide production, but remove more than its total output.
It is estimated that globally we are required to invest around USD 60 trillion to decarbonise. If every company, including Bird was able to fund (in part) something towards climate change as we must reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide.
Bird has not committed to using 100% green renewable energy.
Bird has pledged to be a carbon neutral company since 2020. Publically stating you are a carbon neutral company, which is a great step towards a positive climate action approach, is what every company should strive for way beyond the Paris Agreement's 2050 deadline.
From the outset, Bird has made and is making a difference to ensure sustainability is a core value of the company. Having a sustainable approach means that all operations, products, features, technology, and everything else in between, make environmental factors a first priority (or at least high up in the pecking order), thus achieving and maintain a climate-neutrality business. This approach is much easier and cheaper than retrofitting a product or service to become sustainable from a previously non-sustainable operation.
With some pledges already in force, Bird still has a few challenges to face to improve their overall climate action pledges.
