GAINSystems to Achieve a Zero Carbon Footprint by 2023

Innovative Supply Chain Planning Solution Provider Accelerates Social Responsibility Commitments to Solar Power Production and Humanitarian Efforts

GAINSystems, a leading provider of cloud-based supply chain planning solutions for inventory and supply intensive industries, today announced its continued environmental, sustainability, and governance (ESG) commitment. The company is on track to achieve its goal to become carbon neutral by 2023, an initiative GAINS launched in 2018 which has already delivered a tangible impact, including the equivalent of 600 trees planted and over 68,000 pounds of CO2 emissions saved.

"GAINS is passionate about giving back to the communities where we reside and taking actions to favorably impact our global economy through sustainability and social initiatives," said Bill Benton, Co-Founder of GAINSystems. "Our business is growing, and so is our investment in solar energy, Haitian student lunch programs, and water purification projects. In celebration of Earth Day 2022, we are pleased to announce that our initiative to be zero carbon footprint by 2023 is on track and already delivering an impact. This commitment is at the heart of our company."

The GAINSystems Combined Emissions Offset and Community Center Energy Initiative is in its fourth year, having completed multiple solar arrays at community hosting locations in Chicago. Each site generates $6,000 annually in reduced energy costs and solar credits for the community. The first solar array funded and planned by GAINS was installed at the Wicker Park Community Center. 

As GAINS grows, the company's sustainability and social investments are accelerating through the following: 

  • GAINS increases its investment in solar arrays with every new subscribing customer. The datacenter energy consumed by each GAINS customer has been offset with installed solar arrays since 2018.
  • For every new employee, GAINS provides lunch for another Haitian student through the Barco Nightingales Foundation. The company increased its global employee count by 44 percent in the last two years and has almost doubled its commitment.
