Reducing our carbon footprint

Reducing our carbon footprint

We're a small team always looking to make a big impact by doing the right thing. That's why we've teamed up with Ecologi to help offset our carbon impact.

After calculating our Carbon footprint, we have started our journey to become Carbon neutral by the end of the year. We have already made a number of improvements, embracing subtle changes such as reducing our energy and heating consumption, cycling to work and hybrid working.

We are now working with Ecology building our "virtual forest" by planting trees around the world, helping offset our carbon footprint whilst also helping fund vital sustainability projects.

What is net-zero?

In a nutshell, the concept of 'net-zero' refers to humanity collectively achieving a balance of greenhouse gas reductions (and removal) with greenhouse gas emissions, where the overall net emissions are zero.

That overarching concept of net-zero aligns with the goal of keeping global warming below 1.5C. To achieve this, businesses need to: calculate their carbon footprint and make plans towards the goal of reducing business's emissions by 90% by 2050. Fund climate action to restore and protect our planet (vital to keeping global warming below 1.5°C). Finally, neutralise any emissions they can't avoid by funding projects that remove carbon directly from the atmosphere

Ecologi helps business achieve this. To date we have planted 135 trees and help fund 2 projects that focus on renewable energy and sustainability.

If you would like to support this project and help remove billions of tonnes of emissions, whilst restoring nature and positively transforming society, why not donate to our forest. Please visit our profile > here < where you can donate "a clump of 25 trees" for as little as £6. Together we can make a difference.
