Finance Unlocked has committed to reach net zero emissions by 2022

The urgency of the climate crisis has never been more clear: humanity must reduce its carbon emissions drastically and immediately if it is to avoid catastrophic levels of global warming.

Our commitment to Net Zero

Our commitment to Net Zero

As a business involved in the global effort to educate about the importance and practicalities of climate change action, we want to make sure that our operations are in line with our values. We are committing today, as a business, to reach net zero emissions by the end of the year. This means reducing or offsetting our carbon emissions so that the business as a whole does not add any greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. We have already begun to analyse our practices, suppliers, and systems to identify sources of carbon, and find ways to eliminate them, or offset them through ecological carbon capture.

Why we are taking action

Why we are taking action

To stabilise temperatures at below 1.5°C of warming, and avoid triggering runaway climate change, emissions need to fall by about 8% every year for the next two decades. To put that 8% figure in context: in 2020, COVID-19 enforced full-scale shutdowns of economies and entire transportation sectors; this only caused a 7% drop in emissions!

The Tech Zero Taskforce

The Tech Zero Taskforce

That's why we’ve joined 14 of the fastest-growing tech companies in the UK to create the Tech Zero taskforce. Together, we’re taking bold steps to tackle the climate crisis. The taskforce: Babylon Health, Bulb, Citymapper, Faculty, GoCardless, Habito, Hopin, Moneysupermarket Group, OLIO, Onfido, Revolut, Tech Nation, what3words, Wise and Andrew Griffith MP Together, our work will make it easier for other companies to set and reach their own net zero targets in the lead up to COP26 – the UN Climate Conference being held in the UK this November.
