Melissa’s new Global Green Initiative is a cohesive program of sustainable work practices implemented at its corporate locations across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and India.

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.

“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,” said Greg Brown, the vice president of global marketing at Melissa. “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.”
