Sustainability Development Goals

The latest research from the FSB, show SMEs makeup 99% of the businesses in the UK and small and micro firms like ours make up 90%. This is why it is vitally important even small businesses play their part in delivering on the UN’s SDGs. One of the ways in which we support several of the sustainability goals is by creating a climate positive workforce by partnering with Ecologi to offset our computer-generated carbon production and do our part to restore balance on the planet.

Did you know that the internet alone is estimated to account for 2% of global emissions

We not only offset our computer use, but we also plant one tree for every invoice paid by card, automatically!
