Working with Carbon Credit Capital to measure and offset 100% of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with its operations will be another significant step in Artisan Dental’s sustainability journey. Artisan Dental will be purchasing carbon offset credits from the Green Tree’s reforestation program in the Mississippi Valley. Green Trees’ (ACRE-Advanced Carbon Restored Eco-system) program plants new forests to sequester carbon, restore bio-diversity, clean and restore watersheds through new eco-system creation on degraded lands throughout the Mississippi Valley.
Scott Andersen, co-owner and Director of Stakeholder Stewardship at Artisan Dental is excited about Artisan Dental’s leadership within the dental industry, sharing, “Becoming carbon neutral is another key step in realizing our mission to serve all of the stakeholders connected to our business.
