WeSpire Unveils New Employee Carbon Management Solution

Innovative approach dramatically improves how companies measure and reduce employee emissions in evolving work environments

WeSpire, the leading employee experience platform for Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) initiatives, unveiled its Employee Carbon Management Solution, developed in conjunction with Cox Enterprises and South Pole. The solution equips companies with a suite of tools to measure, reduce, balance and report on employee carbon emissions both at home and the office.

“We’ve pioneered a data-first, behavior-change solution to drive much needed personal climate action in the workplace”

Until now, getting employee-based Scope 3 carbon emissions data quickly, accurately, and on-demand has been challenging due to a lack of workplace-specific tools to reliably capture and report the data. The rapid move to hybrid and remote work environments and an increasing number of companies setting Scope 3 Net Zero goals has magnified the urgency of implementing a better approach.

As Kim Knickle, Research Director for ESG and Sustainability at Verdantix, recently explained, “Given the dramatic shift toward remote work and subsequent increased emissions generated by working from home, companies need to reconsider their approach to Scope 3 emissions and gain insight into employee carbon footprints and home energy use. Innovative solutions to drive ESG performance are imperative to build towards a carbon-neutral and sustainable economy more effectively and meet Net Zero goals.”

WeSpire’s Employee Carbon Management Solution enables companies to activate their ESG strategy across their workforce with prescribed steps for employees to take that have a tangible impact on their own carbon footprints. Companies can now engage their employees to make continual, progressive carbon emission reductions over time through curated actions, based in behavioral science, rather than immediately go to offsetting.

“We’ve pioneered a data-first, behavior-change solution to drive much needed personal climate action in the workplace,” said Susan Hunt Stevens, Founder & CEO, WeSpire. “Our technology enables organizations to engage their employees to better understand their own impact, take targeted carbon reduction actions, and, when needed, the company or employees can balance what remains. This holistic solution will inspire further innovation as employees see their collective impact on their company’s ESG goals and will significantly simplify employee-related Scope 3 emissions reporting.”

WeSpire also partnered with South Pole, leading climate solutions provider and project developer, to embed high quality offset opportunities for employees and employers to use as rewards.

“Stakeholders and employees increasingly demand organizations make commitments to drive climate action and offset their carbon footprints. But this can be challenging,” said George Favaloro, South Pole’s Head of Climate Solutions, North America. “WeSpire’s solution with South Pole’s embedded offsetting capability makes it simple for organizations to take meaningful climate action while engaging and empowering their employees.”
