We had a great time and plan on taking the time to volunteer again next year.
To stay up to date on sustainability and ESG reporting best practices, we took part in several online and in-person events, including:
It was so great to meet up in person again after two years!
Throughout the year, we honed our platform and created new tools to meet business’s needs. And as our software grew, so did our team — by over 50% compared to 2020! And we’re still hiring new talent.
We’re looking forward to sharing our work with you in 2022!
