At kfm, we’re proud to call ourselves an environmentally sustainable agency. We continue to find new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. Here are 7 ways we have implemented sustainable practices in our daily operations.

kfm’s Sustainable Practices

1. Over 75% of our employees bike, walk or take public transit to work. We will also be participating in Bike to Work Week this May.

2. We use paperless technology whenever possible and only print materials when absolutely necessary.

3. We recommend remote meetings to reduce unnecessary travel.

4. We recycle waste materials in our office and on-site at events.

5. We save energy in our office by turning off the heating, air-conditioning and lights. We turn off computers and printers overnight.

6. We use tap water and refillable bottles rather than a water cooler.

7. We reuse materials and repurpose equipment whenever possible.
