DELIVERING A CARBON-OFFSET SHOW
At Microhire we are conscious of our social responsibility. The key audio-visual components used on an event are generally the major users of energy and power. They are also importantly used for key messages and to create a memorable audience experience.
Vision, lighting and audio are all important but they can add up to a sizeable carbon footprint. We have taken some responsibility for the impact of our technology on global carbon levels. As a point of difference to our competitors we have invested heavily in forestry and have over 80 hectares of mature forests to offset the AV power used on our clients’ events.
SMARTER ENERGY-SAVING OPTIONS
We offer a range of low-impact equipment options for clients who would like to support our initiatives. Clients can opt to use LED lighting and LED video screens which use up to 90% less electricity required for conventional technology.
Our people are very conscious that sustainability is something we all need to contribute to. They have spent considerable time understanding the impact of our equipment on the environment and we have evolved our internal processes to consider this.
It’s often the simple things that can make a difference. Ensuring equipment is turned off when not in use, not left on standby etc. Replacing all office lights with LED lighting and unnecessary administrational tasks like document printing and improved planning of vehicle use all make a small but valuable difference.
Not only is Microhire committed to sustainability in its events and our worlds environmental future, we have in place an employee incentive program to support both the environment and some of the victims of global warming and inequity, as described by our employee ‘Orphans for a greener future’ program.
Furthermore, we are continuously exploring and evaluating leading edge technology in an effort to offer our clients not only the latest technology available but products that are energy efficient and affordable.
