At Lean Tree we are fully committed to the importance of sustainability and caring for our planet and that is why we are working hard to make net zero by the end of 2024.

Why does it matter?

Net zero is important because of climate change. And climate change matters to us all. Evidence shows that the world has been getting hotter. According to the World Meteorological Organisation, the warmest 20 years on record have all been in the last 22 years, with the most recent among the warmest. Today, average global temperatures are over 1c higher than in pre-industrial times.

Most experts agree that, while 1c may sound like a small increase, it is causing significant adverse effects, including erratic weather patterns, loss of polar ice and rising sea levels. They also believe that the situation is set to deteriorate further. If no action is taken, the world’s temperature could increase by up to 5c by 2100 or sooner! Scientists and governments are overwhelmingly convinced that climate change is being triggered by higher levels of GHGs in the atmosphere, which cause a greenhouse effect by trapping energy from the sun and warming the Earth’s surface and the air above it.

So, what exactly is Net Zero?

Put simply, net zero means we are not adding new emissions to the atmosphere. Emissions will continue, but will be balanced by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere.


How will we get there?

For the past eighteen months we have been investing in Ecologi, to offset the emissions of our team. So far, we have contributed to over 94t of carbon reduction, planted 1305 trees and funded 31 separate climate projects around the world. In addition to this we have been scaling back on business travel to essential only and have launched an EV scheme within the workplace to encourage our employees to switch to electric vehicles.

We continue to look for innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint and remain committed to our goal of being carbon neutral by the close of 2024. Will you join us?
