Saving Coventry Building Society 1,500 tonnes of employee emissions with our Scope 3 Survey

As part of their B Corp commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility,  Coventry Building Society, a UK based building society, recognised the opportunity and the need to better understand and support their large workforce while cutting down on carbon emissions. We ran our Scope 3 Survey with them, and what transpired was truly inspirational...

The story...

Blick Rothenberg are a leading tax, accounting, and business firm based in London.

Prior to implementing Pawprint, Blick Rothenberg aimed to embark on their journey toward becoming a B Corp while crafting a strong ESG strategy tailored for their workforce.

They recognised the vital importance of sustainability as a core aspect of their business and deemed it to be business critical. 

They understood they needed to get employees onboard and engaged as a starting point to functioning more sustainably.

The challenge...

What they discovered was they had no clear way of showing progress in sustainability, more specifically in carbon emissions. 

Their challenges became: 

1. Establishing a well-defined sustainability agenda

2. Identifying strategies to reduce their environmental footprint

3. Engage their sizable workforce throughout the process

"I want our employees to come to work and say, as an organisation, we're trying to do the right things. And that's why I want to work here"

Rob, Partner at Blick Rothenberg

The solution...

Upon onboarding, we ran a greener working from home sprint with Blick Rothenberg for 6 weeks. 

From the sprint, employees were able to save 376 kg CO2e which is the equivalent of 1 meter squared of ice surface. 

Upon completion, employees found that integrating sustainability into Blick Rothenberg’s agenda became more manageable, thanks to the practical day-to-day actions put in practice during the sprint.

"With sustainability, there are certain things you just won't know. Pawprint helped us uncover and discover new ways of doing things."

Jim, Partner at Blick Rothenberg
