“With our global presence, we recognize the opportunity for positive impact on the broad regional areas we serve,” said Greg Brown, Vice President, Global Marketing, Melissa. “Our offices reduce, re-use, and recycle – in alignment with our overall values and corporate mandate to help businesses reduce mail waste and eliminate returned shipments. We are also expanding our existing pre-pandemic policies to include incentives for public transport, implementation of solar and low-cost energy systems, and permanent options for flexible and remote work schedules.”

Melissa has embraced a spectrum of decarbonization goals worldwide, such as the UK’s ambitious mandate for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and India’s Paris Agreement commitment to reduce its economy’s emissions intensity by 33-35% by 2030 from 2005 levels. The company’s Global Green initiative includes a flexible range of policies and incentives, applied wherever possible to each regional office.

  • Melissa’s work scheduling options feature flexible hours depending on job role, and range from full work-at-home to a minimum requirement of two days onsite at a company office.
  • Travel has been reduced universally, with business handled via video interaction rather than face-to-face customer visits.
  • Use of public transport is incentivized and includes options such as the UK’s Transport for London (TfL), Germany’s S-Bahn, U-Bahn, and trams, public buses in India in connection with local administrative body BBMP, and ridesharing and toll road travel in North America.
  • Melissa’s solar energy initiative is led by the company’s North American headquarters and includes onsite charging stations for electric vehicles.
  • Electricity is sourced from green providers whenever possible. Power-saving equipment is programmed to turn off when not in use, avoiding power drain from standby modes. Motion-activated, energy-efficient LED lights have replaced older and less-efficient technologies such as CFL lamps. All electrical appliances are rated for energy savings per the appropriate governing energy efficiency body.
  • ’Reduce, re-use, recycle’ means business operations are near paper-free and rely on digital signatures and data transmission; products with minimal packaging are used proactively and packaging is consistently recycled.
