Use Employee Retention Credit Funds to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

While there seems to be boundless corporate backing for achieving Carbon Neutrality, there always seems to be a lack of funding when making plans to attain that goal. But what if you were able to identify an unrealized funding source – could those “free” funds be earmarked for energy efficiency projects or purchasing Carbon Offsets?

The Employee Retention Credit is a Covid-19 federal response program under the Cares Act that was most recently amended in late 2022. This program provides a credit of up to $26,000 per employee if your business was negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

If your operations were negatively impacted through a government mandate or restriction, or you if were unable to obtain goods or materials from your suppliers, you can qualify. You can also qualify if you experienced a 20% reduction of gross income in one or more quarters of 2021 (relative to 2019), or a 50% income reduction in any quarter of 2020, (again, relative to 2019).

This audit program is available to organizations (including non-profits) with a minimum of 10 employees. For more information on how to take advantage of this program, contact:
