Here at LEaF Translations, we care deeply about the environment. We are driven by a desire to show that business can be a positive force for good.
Our primary objective in our work is to help our clients by providing high-quality multilingual content so they can increase their international customer base. But this shouldn’t come at a cost.
That is why, since LEaF was founded back in 2017, we have done everything that we can to keep our impact on the environment to a minimum:
- We are a paper-free company (all of our correspondence is sent electronically, except certified translations, which require paper documents)
- We use a plug-in hybrid car, bike or public transport for all business travel
- We avoid single-use plastics wherever possible (made a lot easier by the purchase of a coffee machine for the office!)
And now, in 2020, we are going one step further. We have partnered with the good people at Offset Earth to offset all of our carbon emissions. Our translations are now fully carbon neutral.
And it doesn’t end there: not only are Offset Earth planting over 50 trees each month on our behalf, we are also contributing to Offset Earth’s environmental projects across the world.
One such project concerns providing cleaner and safer stoves in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. You can read more about this fantastic project here. Other examples, include planting mangrove trees in Madagascar, installing wind farms in Indonesia, providing bio-digesters to rural farmers in Vietnam and installing solar panels in India.
