Carbon footprint reduction

Spreading only the good

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are one of the most significant factors contributing to climate change. Human use of nonrenewable energy sources releases these gasses into the atmosphere, where they absorb energy and return to Earth causing extreme weather changes and events.

Gorton’s recognizes our contributions to GHG emissions, and we are actively engaged in reducing our environmental impact by focusing on how waste, water, and transportation are managed.
