Green Pledge

In Sep 2021 red10 made 5 Green Pledges

Being a boutique consultancy, we know our small Green changes aren’t going to change the world, yet we believe that by taking care of the #LittleGreenThings , we contribute to the big Green things.

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.

Share your Green ideas with us

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.
  • We are encouraging our company HQ’s building owner to move to 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas.

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.

Green Pledge #3: Follow the Money

  • Our main business bank account is with an ethical bank who ensure they do not hold bank accounts for, nor invest in, fossil fuel companies.
  • We commit to moving our business savings account to an ethical bank, too, so that 100% of our banking is green.
  • Our company directors have instructed their pension providers to move their pensions into certified green portfolios.

Green Pledge #4: Follow the Clients

  • We will only work with fossil fuel clients who can demonstrate active transitioning to carbon neutral

Green Pledge #5: Follow the Suppliers

  • We are sharing our Green Pledge with our main suppliers, and asking them to share their Green Pledges with us.
