Corporate Social Responsibility
Sustainable goals for a brighter tomorrow
Reduce. Reuse. Rethink.
At Arise, we believe in reimagining the way that things work. Not just customer service, but the world. By changing the world for the better, whether through responsible corporate incentives that offer a reduction in waste, or personally taking the extra steps to recycle our lunch wastes, Arise is dedicated to promoting a sustainable and healthy environment. Rethinking the possibilities of the way we work was fundamental in the development of Arise Virtual Solutions. Rethinking the ways we can change the world is the next logical step.
A Social Investment
Working with Arise means making a corporate social investment in a sustainable future for generations to come. Multiple states boast incentives for responsible business partners going green. The benefit of Arise means your corporation is embracing a nontraditional way to reduce the amount of energy usually associated with quality operations. With a completely virtual network, there is no longer a need for office space, overhead costs, energy wastes, and commuter traffic. Instead, it is an embrace of established micro call centers, small businesses, local communities, and environmental stewardship. A brighter future is a greener future.
Waste Not, Want Not
Reducing Carbon Emissions
Imagine tens of thousands of dedicated workers without a daily commute. The entrepreneurs running micro call centers utilizing the Arise platform are reducing nearly 98,000 metric tons of CO2 in the atmosphere from emissions. These quality providers uniquely invested in their future are saving 265.6 million miles per year in vehicle miles traveled – the equivalent of traveling around the earth 10,667 times or going to the moon and back 589 times.
Using an estimation based on vehicle miles traveled of 265.6 million miles per year and average U.S. fuel economy of 24.6 miles per gallon provided by the University of Michigan's Transportation Research Institute, this means a reduction in gas consumption of 10.8 million gallons per year – enough gas to fill 16 Olympic-sized swimming pools or fuel a jet to fly around the world 16,400 times.

Turn Off the Lights
Arise brings you a crowd, in a cloud. Virtual crowdsourcing guarantees a wealth of highly skilled workers looking for their next client to serve. With no geographical limit to their service, companies are free to choose the best and brightest small business to meet their needs. In comparison, traditional brick and mortar locations are limited to a 20-mile or more commute. After the gas and carbon used to fill the brick and mortar, the building itself then needs to face a myriad of wasteful energy uses, in addition to costs needed to upgrade older buildings to become green. Reducing office space and related operating costs opens up opportunities for a completely crowdsourced customer experience. The Arise platform helps avoid 57,500,000 kWh in energy consumption annually, which is equivalent to the energy used annually 5,750 households more commonly known as residential customer equivalents or RCEs in the energy industry. A recent study from Gartner Research reveals sustainable, virtual, geographically dispersed teams decrease business overhead expenses by 30% – 55% while increasing productivity. In addition to saving energy, a fully digital experience means paperless transactions, preventing further deforestation and encouraging further recycling efforts among small businesses.
Corporate Conscience and Goals
The Arise platform enables clients to meet corporate sustainability goals that in turn benefit not only their environment but the future of their business. A 2016 study by Dodge Data & Analytics in collaboration with Siemens, titled "Corporate Sustainability Reaches Middle Age: A Review of Key Trends and Insights from 9 Years of Research," has found that involvement by top U.S. companies in sustainability is continuing to grow, with many reporting strong business benefits. While there is some percentage of businesses that do not see the benefit in going green, 80% of companies interviewed
believe their corporate sustainability gives them a stronger competitive advantage, and helps them retain or attract employees and customers. Gaining and retaining customers is the key. In the world market, active corporate sustainability efforts mean that your business takes its place as a corporate citizen seriously.
Evidence of longevity and environmental compatibility are promotional values of a thoughtful leadership that sees and believe in the future and takes corporate social responsibility.
