Climate change poses a dire threat to the long-term survival of humanity and our planet, and it is imperative that businesses do their part to address this crisis. Ceridian is committed to reducing our Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 42% before 2030. We are taking actionable, quantifiable steps to reduce our carbon footprint, including exploring ways to build a sustainable procurement program to partner with vendors and businesses who are committed to doing the same.
The amount of paper Ceridian used in 2021 was nearly half of what we used in 2019. This reflects our continued effort to promote self-service and paperless solutions for payroll and HR. Our overall waste output declined by 79% in that time due, in part, to the COVID-19 pandemic. As our workforce returns to the office, we will continue to explore new opportunities to reduce waste-to-landfill in our operations.
