Our Commitment to ESG & Sustainability
For all of us at Copperleaf, helping our clients deliver on their ESG commitments advances our own fundamental purpose of building a better world, one decision at a time.
We believe delivering high performance as an organization and driving sustainability go hand in hand. And it all comes down to the decisions being made every day. We help organizations develop quantitative methods to prioritize decisions to address ESG goals. The Copperleaf Value Framework defines “what an organization values” beyond just financial objectives. It encompasses factors related to stewardship, sustainability, service levels, risk categories, and more—allowing organizations to consider the impact of all of these factors when making trade-off decisions.
Our ESG Commitments
Setting our own serious commitments for how we operate is critical to our business success and fueled by our culture. Overall, we’re trying to leave the world a better place than we found it through our work, our solutions, and our actions inside and outside of work. We’re making tangible progress towards our own ESG commitments in these areas.
Greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and waste, water and land use
Safety management, diversity and inclusion, communities, and customer engagement
Risk management, cyber security, oversight, transparency and reporting
Copperleaf goes carbon neutral
We’re always looking for new ways to become a more sustainable business, especially as we grow as a company. After doing research, we realized that carbon offsetting is the most immediate way to make a positive environmental impact while we continue to work on other ways to further reduce our carbon footprint.
The projects we invested in will offset over 2,100 tons of carbon emissions—the equivalent of our company’s total annual carbon footprint.
The Copperleaf Value Framework incorporates ESG commitments
Our clients told us they needed a transparent, consistent framework for evaluating decisions that align with their financial objectives and strategy, while also delivering on their ESG goals. The Copperleaf Value Framework gives organizations the ability to define value in their own terms and quantify the impact of each opportunity at any point in time.
Copperleaf Green Team
Our Green Team has a mission to minimize Copperleaf’s environmental footprint, helping us all make more responsible choices through initiatives that promote awareness, participation, and behavioral change. We have committed to a goal of maintaining carbon neutrality as a company, and we work in buildings that have earned LEED Platinum status.
One of the ways we bring about change is through our work with clients. We help them build quantitative methods to prioritize decisions that address environmental, social and economic challenges.
An important part of our success is working with Copperleaf to integrate carbon into our asset management process—ensuring that we are challenging our supply chain against the measures we put in place.
SRP has been interviewed by utilities on our existing and planned asset management processes, and on how we use Copperleaf Portfolio™ to support those processes and strengthen corporate governance.
