SUSTAINABLE & LOCAL SOURCING

Businesses that localize their supply chain are helping the environment as they reduce shipping, storage, emissions, and energy usage.

Destinations committed to

ENERGY CONSERVATION

By using equipment and practices to conserve energy such as the use of solar power, LED lighting and sensors, 132 Punch Members are contributing to reduce the demand for carbon-intensive power plants which in turn benefits the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

As businesses improve their energy efficiency, they need less electricity and thus rely less on carbon-intensive power plants. Mining, logging and material extraction associated with the provision of fossil fuels destroy habitats on land and in the ocean. Human-induced air pollution is one of the main reasons that global biodiversity is disappearing at unprecedented levels.
