Green Pledge

red10 has 5 Green Pledges

In 2021 we made 5 Green pledges. We updated these 6-Sep-2023 and intend to now update annually.

We’d like your feedback on our pledges as we continue to learn how to be even Greener.

And our consultants have created a shared list of the personal changes they are making.

Green Pledge #1: Follow the Energy

  • Our two company directors currently mainly work from home, and their offices use 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas. They are in the process of converting their house to remove the use of gas.
  • In Sep 2023, we calculated our scope 1 and scope 2 emissions as being almost zero.

Green Pledge #2: Follow the Travel

  • We changed our two company cars in Aug 2021 to be 100% electric. Whenever possible, we aim to fill them with renewable electric.
  • We will encourage our clients to use the virtual meeting approach we learnt during the pandemic, whenever possible.
  • Where travel is necessary, we commit to carbon offsetting so that the travel is carbon negative.
  • In September 2023, we chose 2019 as our base year for our commitment to the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi). We calculated our scope 3 emissions as 43.5 tCO2e. We have committed to a 46% reduction by 2030. We will publish our emissions annually.
  • In February 2024, we calculated our 2023 scope 3 emissions as 13.1 tCO2e

Green Pledge #3: Follow the Money

Update: Jan-2024

  • All of red10 ‘s directors and staff bank with organisations that get a green rating on https://bank.green/

    • 2 have plans to switch banks

Green Pledge #4: Follow the Clients

Green Pledge #5: Follow the Suppliers
