At Habito, we’re committing to reach net zero emissions by 2030. This means limiting our company’s carbon footprint in line with keeping global warming to below 1.5°C - the critical level of heating to avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
As part of our net zero commitment, we will:
Last year, Habito became a certified B Corp. Put simply, it means we’ve made a legal promise to value people and the planet as much as profit.
We’re also a supporter of the Better Business Act. The Better Business Act is a collection of over 350 businesses backing policy change together. The aim is to make sure that every company in the UK must consider wider society and the environment as much as their shareholders’ interests.
Targeting net zero as a business is a major part of our commitment. Businesses measure their greenhouse gas emissions by sorting them into three groups or ‘scopes’ - find out exactly what this means here. We measured our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for 2020 (133 tonnes of CO2e, if you’re interested). We’re working on offsetting any we can’t eliminate right now but ultimately towards stamping out our emissions altogether. We’ll measure our emissions each year and share our progress against our net zero target for 2030.
As well as our own net zero goal, we are conscious of the bigger picture. Here’s how we’re supporting the UK’s target of net zero by 2050:
We know that by working closely with like minded businesses and organisations, we can have a positive impact on the fight against climate change.
