People want proof. Not promises.

As pressure grows on the economy to decarbonise, companies of all shapes and sizes are beginning to take greater responsibility for the impact they create.

Whilst it’s mandatory in the UK for publicly listed companies to measure and disclose their emissions, SME’s still have the freedom to decide how they want to address their impact. Having said this, SME’s, especially those that are consumer-facing with high growth ambitions, can’t afford not to take action given the increasing demand by consumers for environmentally friendly and ethical products.

There has been a big shift in SMEs’ practices…


Last year, the UK became the first major economy to pass a law on bringing all the country’s greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050. Net-zero means that any emissions produced will be balanced out by schemes to offset an equivalent amount of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

A few weeks ago, in our previous blog post, we talked about tree planting as such a solution. To recap: tree planting is part of the current set of best solutions to remove the greenhouse gasses we emit into the atmosphere. The World Economic Forum launched an initiative to plant one trillion…


This is the second blog in a two-part series about the circular economy. Part 1 introduced the topic and highlighted the key drivers for change. In Part 2, we take a closer look at some examples and explain how companies can start integrating circular economy principles into their business models.

Since the end of the Second World War, our economy has been driven by an insatiable demand for consumption. However, we’ve consumed at such a rate that our planet’s natural life support systems are under threat. …

“Waste isn’t waste until we waste it”. This is not a quote from someone known as a pioneer in the sustainability space, but from Will.i.am, musician and founder of the plastics recycling company, Ekocycle. …


The European Union’s flagship emissions trading scheme, the EU ETS, was launched 15 years ago with the aim of reducing the emissions of Europe’s largest polluting sectors. The cap and trade system incentivises big polluters to decarbonise by putting a cap on the amount of emissions they are allowed to produce. The cap is represented by a set of tradeable allowances that companies are issued each year, each allowance accounting for one tonne of CO2e. This system allows for the price of emission allowances to fluctuate according to supply and demand. The EU ETS has also played a key part…


The Fashion Industry is growing and so is its impact on the Environment

The fashion industry is one of the world’s largest consumer industries, contributing $2.5 trillion to the economy and employing more than 60 million people along its value chain. Together, the forces of globalisation and technology significantly impacted changes in the fashion industry. Especially the emergence of social media, new business models and advanced manufacturing have shaped the industry in recent years.

With population growth and rising incomes, the fashion industry is projected to grow to $3.3 trillion by 2030. A report by the Global Fashion Agenda and…


The World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report places for the first time environmental threats at the top of the list in terms of impact and likelihood. In particular, the report highlights an increasing concern for the failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation.

In response, the World Economic Forum launched an initiative to plant one trillion trees by 2030 that would sequester enough carbon to slow down and reverse climate change.

At first sight, this action seems positive. It has generated a lot of awareness as it is a natural solution that can be clearly visualised. Even Donald Trump, who…


Our co-founder Tiago attended COP25. This is his experience and main takeaways from the event.

For the last 25 years, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have organised the Conference of the Parties, or COP, to assess the world’s progress on dealing with climate change. From its first implementation in 1995, the conference has seen a great increase in engagement from both countries and organisations. The third COP resulted in the establishment of the Kyoto protocol, which produced obligations for signatories with the objective of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and was later amended to ensure global…
