GBS Enterprises Joined Forces with Carbonfund.org to Fight Global Warming in 2008

 

Protect-All® Products Company Moved to Help Environment

 

January 15, 2009 - Last October GBS Enterprises announced that the company is offsetting the company's carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org, one of the country’s leading carbon offset organizations. As part of a comprehensive energy strategy, GBS Enterprises is offsetting emissions from its annual electric and natural gas consumption, as well as emissions from all forms of business travel.

 

Concerned about Global Warming and how it is affecting the world, the company researched what it could do to help reduce the effects of Global Warming. Teaming up with Carbonfund.org and its reforestation efforts, GBS Enterprises is offsetting nearly 20,000 pounds of carbon dioxide annually; additionally it has been able to reduce its CO2 emissions by establishing energy saving programs within the company.

 

Implemented programs include the establishment of a recycling program for cardboard and paper waste; the reduction of electrical usage from a mandatory lights-off policy for office, production and warehouse areas of the facility when not in use; the reduction of heating and cooling system needs from the use of windows for ventilation and temperature control; and the computer-related print only when necessary policy implemented for all staff.

 

“GBS Enterprises is extremely proud to be a Carbon-free Partner of Carbonfund.org. Taking responsibility for the carbon dioxide emissions our company is releasing into the atmosphere is the environmentally responsible thing to do,” said Mike Svoboda, CEO of GBS Enterprises. “On a more personal level - as a parent - I find it to be vital for the health and happiness of my own children both now and in the future.”

 

Carbonfund.org works with over 900 business partners of all sizes to help them reduce and offset their carbon footprint.

 

“GBS is a market leader in the mattress protection industry,” said Eric Carlson, Executive Director of Carbonfund.org, “and we are pleased to work with them to protect our planet. GBS’s commitment to climate protection is commendable; we are happy to partner with them in their quest to have people sleep Carbon-free.”
