We’re committed to being a sustainable, positive-impact company.

Target & Impact

One of our core company values is to ‘leave it better than you found it’, and this applies to people and the planet as much as our design work.

This isn’t just slogans, it’s important to us and we know it’s important to our clients too.

Our target

Carbon-negative for our past, present and future by 2030.

Our impact

In 2021 we emitted 53TNS of carbon. We are planning our removal response.

Our pledge

We’ve pledged 1% of gross profit for the planet.
One% for the planet

Net Zero

Considering the climate and environment emergency, we’re proud to have joined Tech Zero – a group of tech companies joining forces to make faster progress to net zero.

Our Tech Zero membership means we’ve committed to measuring and publishing our scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions. We’ll also publish details of our plans to meet our target and regular updates here to track our progress.

Ecosia

We encourage our team to use Ecosia as their default search engine. Ecosia put all their profits from web searches into planting trees: over 157 million to date. They also don’t sell your data, which is nice.
