We’ve all probably heard the phrase, “If you don’t have your health, nothing else matters”. Given the current global pandemic situation, this phrase has never felt more true.
We want to let you — our trusted clients, friends, partners, and colleagues — know that 3Degrees is committed to staying connected with you on what matters.
Right now, we understand that most of you are grappling with new workplace and home realities. So are we. Following guidance from CDC and local authorities, 3Degrees closed our physical offices in March. Like most of you, we are adjusting to working remotely, sometimes with pets and/or children making cameo appearances on video calls. Many of us are also managing other stresses, such as worrying about elderly loved ones, being unable to visit sick and elderly parents, or having to cancel once-in-a-lifetime events like weddings, graduations, and memorials. The effects are far-reaching and deeply personal.
While these are unsettling times, they’re also a heartening reminder how individuals and communities can pull together to confront a common challenge. We’ve already seen examples of how this global pandemic is spurring amazing creativity and innovation that should provide lasting benefits long after we are on the other side of the current crisis. Many of the same characteristics that are critical to an effective COVID-19 response, such as compassion, perseverance, and care for vulnerable populations disproportionately affected, are also critical to addressing the longer-term, ongoing challenge of climate change.
We remain passionate about our mission to help businesses and their customers take urgent action on climate change — which remains a critical issue. And, people’s health, their families, and their livelihoods are what’s currently weighing on everyone’s mind. Focusing your attention on these important concerns right now is understandable. And 3Degrees will continue to be here when you’re ready to re-engage in efforts around renewable energy, transportation decarbonization, and other climate solutions.
Looking ahead, we’re working on many ways we can stay connected remotely. On the immediate horizon, we’ll be participating in an April 14th webinar with Bloom Energy on GHG Accounting and Emissions Reduction Techniques. If you’re ready to engage, we’d love for you to join us. And yes, kids and pets are welcome to make cameo appearances.
Here’s to staying connected on what matters.
