Net Zero Travel

Since 2020, through our third-party validated CO₂ removal project with Goodwings, on an annual basis, Global Evolution offsets all carbon emissions as a result of employee travel. The latest period of offset was January 1st, 2023, through December 31st, 2023. Global Evolution will continue to offset carbon emissions from employee travel annually going forward.

The project will, through afforestation, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to neutralize our carbon emission as a company.
