PAE's Commitment to People and Planet
PAE's 2018 results from the Project Drawdown EcoChallenge.
This year, PAE staff demonstrated their long-standing commitment to People and Planet by taking part in a friendly, cross-office competition for the Project Drawdown EcoChallenge.
Numerous other companies joined across the country to make an impact. Participation involves signing up for a variety of daily, weekly, and one-time carbon-footprint reduction challenges based on Project Drawdown’s 100 most substantive solutions to combat global warming. Categories consist of carbon-impacting measures including food, transportation, education, and community involvement. Participants track their completed challenges online, and as points are accrued, each person can see how little by little, we can “draw down” our carbon footprint.
Challenges range in point value from simple changes such as conscientious shopping or commuting with non-fossil fuel transportation, to contacting congress people or representatives to advocate for Earth-saving public policies, to more time-intensive activities such volunteering or presenting on various carbon-reduction topics.
PAE employees across all our offices earned over 37,000 points and PAE’s Seattle office came in 8th among 767 teams. These points translate to a savings of over 8,500 pounds of CO2 and over 4,000 gallons of water, as well as many other positive environmental impacts.
