Since Blackbird Security's founding in 2015, we’ve been dedicated to minimizing our emissions and reducing our company’s carbon footprint holistically through our processes, spaces, travel and initiatives. Our policy is to only use what is needed!
Our innovative TrackTik software is used for real-time data and reporting. This cutting-edge technological approach allows us to provide our clients with the data they need, while also cutting down on use of paper.
Reduced & Green Office Spaces
In today’s world, there’s no need for large and wasteful office spaces. By utilizing modern tools that facilitate remote working, we have empowered our team to work from home when possible and to primarily use the office for interviews, client meetings and collaboration sessions.
This flexible working arrangement has led to a significant reduction in staff travel emissions and allows us to reduce our carbon footprint with a smaller head office space. We also require our janitorial staff to only use environmentally friendly products!
Low CO2 Emission Travel
In order to reduce carbon footprint and energy costs, we align our patrols to reduce the use of our vehicles unless absolutely necessary.
As we work towards our goal of fully electric vehicles by 2025, we utilize Nissan’s Micra vehicle as it’s one of the lowest CO2 emission options for a petrol engine. We also encourage staff to carpool and take more sustainable forms of transportation when possible. We back this up by reimbursing staff for public transit passes and bike-share programs.
Green Business Bureau Certification
We are a proud member of the Green Business Bureau which is globally recognized and trusted for companies’ commitment to sustainable business practices.
Membership of the Green Business Bureau allows Blackbird Security to stay up to date on sustainability in business, and compliant with evolving sustainable standards and expectations.
Additional Ways We Reduce Our Carbon Footprint
Grouping together our patrols geographically and patrol schedule to reduce emissions
Using bike patrols, instead of vehicle patrols, wherever possible (based on client preference)
Asking our guards to drive smart, and not drive the vehicle unless on a scheduled patrol
Regularly servicing our vehicles, tire pressure / maintenance of automotive parts, to increase fuel efficiency
Regularly purchasing carbon offsets through climate protection projects such as Myclimate and Terrapass. A carbon offset is a credit for emissions reductions that help companies achieve net neutral carbon emissions
The majority of our uniforms are free from environmentally perfluorinated carbons (PFCs) and are made using recycled polyester
