Pawprint’s impact

Pawprint exists to help people fight climate change at home, work and beyond, through sustained, environmentally-beneficial behavioural change. But what about our own impact? This page sets out what we’re doing, as a business, to help improve life for people now and in the future. 

Our commitments

1

Engage people

We cannot beat the climate crisis in a vacuum. We're committed to casting our net far and wide, to engage a movement big enough to make a difference.

2

Reduce GHG emissions

We are committed to doing our bit to bring emissions to zero by mid-century, and limit global warming (in line with scientific recommendation) to 1.5 degrees.

3

Be a business to believe in

Pawprint is part of the new generation of businesses that know it’s no longer an option to exist purely for profit; we commit to prioritising people and the planet alongside our finances.

We're committed to Real Net Zero by 2050

This might seem a little slow for a company like Pawprint, but after much thought and debate we decided that offsetting doesn’t align with our values. Until permanent solutions are more reliable and affordable, we’re focused on bringing our footprint down through reductions that are in line with science-based targets.

3. Be a business to believe in

A shift is occurring in the business world; leaders of tomorrow are using a new value system to measure success. Profit and growth must be achieved without harming people or the planet. Pawprint is dedicated to being part of this movement, and encourages others to join us. Below we’ve outlined some of the ways we’re pushing ourselves beyond planet-focused progress.
