Ezoic Achieves Net Zero
Ezoic achieved a net zero carbon footprint and invested in three high-impact projects that actively remove carbon dioxide recently.
An AI-driven technology platform for digital publishers, Ezoic successfully offset its annual carbon dioxide emissions produced by its operations around the globe as well as servers that host over 35,000 client domains that use its website monetization platform.
In 2021, Ezoic launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program and committed to supporting two of the 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—Climate Action and Quality Education.
Ezoic started by reducing single-use plastic, composting food waste, recycling broken electronics and donating regularly to the Ocean Foundation’s verified Blue Carbon program. As Ezoic surpassed qualifying for “carbon neutrality” early in the year, the company continued to achieve net zero.
The company partnered with Supercritical to calculate its overall carbon footprint as it serves a network of online publishers, according to Quantcast. Ezoic invested in three high-impact programs certified by Supercritical to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. These include an afforestation program in East Africa, a biochar project focused on net-negative technologies that remove carbon at an industrial scale, and an enhanced weathering project that is one of the first large-scale trials of enhanced weathering on land.
“CSR is about corporations using their capabilities and resources to make an impact,” said Ezoic Founder and CEO Dwayne Lafleur in a statement. “It can be bigger projects, but it's also simple things that if every company did, it would drive real change.”
