WeSpire Unveils New Carbon Management Solution for Employees | Nation / World

BOSTON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – January 6, 2022–

WeSpire, the leading employee experience platform for environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives, today unveiled its employee carbon management solution, developed in collaboration with Cox Enterprises and South Pole. The solution provides businesses with a suite of tools to measure, reduce, balance and report employee carbon emissions both at home and in the office.

Until now, obtaining employee-based Scope 3 carbon emissions data quickly, accurately, and on demand has been difficult due to the lack of specific workplace tools to capture and report the data in a meaningful way. reliable. The rapid evolution towards hybrid and remote work environments and an increasing number of companies setting Scope 3 Net Zero goals have amplified the urgency to implement a better approach.

Like Kim Knickle, Research Director for ESG and Sustainability at Verdantix, recently explained: “Given the dramatic shift towards remote working and the increase in emissions generated by working from home, companies need to reconsider their approach to Scope 3 emissions and better understand the carbon footprint. of employees and home energy consumption. Innovative solutions to boost ESG performance are imperative to more effectively build a carbon neutral and sustainable economy and achieve Net Zero goals. “

WeSpire’s employee carbon management solution enables companies to activate their ESG strategy for their entire workforce with prescribed steps that employees must follow that have a tangible impact on their own carbon footprint. Companies can now engage their employees to reduce their carbon emissions continuously and incrementally over time through organized, behavioral science-based actions, rather than immediately moving to offsetting.

“We have launched a data-driven behavior change solution to drive much needed personal climate action in the workplace,” said Susan Hunt Stevens, Founder and CEO of WeSpire. “Our technology allows organizations to engage their employees to better understand their own impact, to take targeted carbon reduction actions and, if necessary, the business or employees can balance what is left. This holistic solution will inspire more innovation as employees see their collective impact on their company’s ESG goals and dramatically simplify Scope 3 emissions reporting related to employees.

WeSpire has also partnered with South Pole, a leading climate solutions provider and project developer, to incorporate high-quality compensation opportunities that employees and employers can use as rewards.

“Stakeholders and employees are increasingly demanding that organizations commit to taking action for the climate and offsetting their carbon footprint. But it can be difficult, ”said George Favaloro, Climate Solutions Manager for South Pole, North America. “WeSpire’s solution with South Pole’s built-in compensation capability enables organizations to take meaningful climate action while engaging and empowering their employees. “

WeSpire’s employee carbon management solution is currently being tested with general availability by Earth Day 2022. For more information or to request a demo, please visit www.wespire.com/request-a-demo.
