Zoned Properties, Inc., an Arizona-based real estate company in the cannabis industry, announced it has become the first organization focused on the regulated cannabis industry to achieve carbon neutrality via validation by the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Initiative and One Carbon World.
Zoned Properties has joined companies including Microsoft, Sony, and SAP; committing to measure and report and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and offset remaining emissions with UN Certified Emission Reductions (CERs).
“With our firm commitment to sustainability as a company, this was an important step for us to take to achieve a leadership position in the real estate and regulated cannabis industries,” said Dr. John Kester, Director of Sustainability Services for Zoned Properties.
Zoned Properties will participate in the program and follow guidance from One Carbon World to pursue further reductions in its operational footprint focusing on energy, water, waste, and travel.
One Carbon World is a global resource partner of the United Nations Climate Neutral Now initiative and a not for profit organization. They are recognized for offering advice and support on measuring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions around the world. This is achieved by retiring carbon credits, supporting emission reduction and forestry projects that meet the highest standards, reduce carbon emissions and contribute to sustainable development.
