RALEIGH, NC, March 26, 2024 Greenplaces, the all-in-one sustainability platform, has announced a partnership with Pat Croce & Company, a distinguished family-operated company in the hospitality industry, to calculate their carbon footprint and establish sustainability goals.

Greenplaces’ software and services enabled Pat Croce & Company to accurately calculate their carbon footprint, a significant step in their journey towards being more sustainable. Armed with this data, the company has been able to set ambitious goals aimed at reducing its environmental impact through sourcing renewable energy, reducing gas and water consumption, and engaging its supply chain to source more sustainable options.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Greenplaces,” said Jeff Sorg, CEO of Pat Croce & Company. “They have empowered us to understand the impact hospitality and restaurants have on the climate and actively engage in practices that are not only good for our business, but also contribute positively to our planet.”
