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 service, commitments and partnerships help us contribute to the following UN SDGS:
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.
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.
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.

Flights to Hong Kong from London
People's yearly carbon footprints in the UK
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.
Through our 1% for the Planet membership, we are committed to donating a minimum of 1% of gross sales annually to these environmental causes.
