Futureproofs is a climate-positive business

Futureproofs is about the future

Climate-positive means more than planting trees.
Futureproofs doesn't just offset our carbon usage, we actively reduce it.
We don't just look at direct impact like server costs, but also office heating, staff travel and more.

Futureproofs is about the future - the future of your business but also the future of the world we live in.

Running our business in a way that respects and sustains the planet just makes sense. So, we've made a commitment to sustainability in everything we do across the organisation. This means not only Scope 1 emissions (those that arise directly from our activity), not only Scope 2 emissions (those that arise from energy we buy) but also Scope 3 emissions (everything else we do - business travel, employee commuting, goods and services we buy, and more).

This means running our business, top to bottom, in a climate-positive way. It means looking at the choices we make (power for our servers, travel for our team, heating for our offices) and, one step at a time, making choices that are better for the climate.

This also means making a financial investment in dealing with the harm we've done to the environment. So, in Spring 2021, we started to work with Ecologi to reduce and offset our carbon emissions. As a result, Futureproofs is climate-positive back to 2019, and we now invest money every month in planting trees to restore lost ecosystems and in carbon offsetting to eliminate the damage our activities do to the environment. We also help and encourage our team to make better choices for their own lives, from travel to food to accommodation.

We offset our carbon footprint via Ecologi

Our climate goals as a business for 2021 are:

If you'd like to find out more about how we're building a climate-positive business, please do ask. There are lots of tools to calculate your business's carbon footprint. The one we used was from our friends at Net Carbon Negative, produced by the digital agency MMT from their own journey to being carbon negative. You can take a look at our climate dashboard at Ecologi.
