Carbon neutral forever
We’ve taken responsibility for our impact on the planet and have pledged to be carbon neutral forever
We calculate our carbon footprint on an annual basis, paying close attention to our energy and water usage, our suppliers, the work we produce and the equipment we use to produce it. This even extends to our daily commute and the things we eat.
Each year we’re responsible for around 15 tonnes of CO2 and each year we over-offset this figure to ensure that we're doing everything we can to leave a positive long-term affect on the planet.
We’ve offset by planting trees, seagrass, mangroves, seed balls and supporting green energy and clean drinking water projects across the globe. In doing so we’ve also created and protected habitats for many threatened species and provided sustainable employment.
Since measuring our footprint annually, we’ve already made changes to the way we work. This includes:
Reducing our energy consumption where possible
Using public transport and walking or cycling to work where appropriate
Continuing with our hybrid working model to reduce our impact from commuting
Re-assessing our digital suppliers to ensure they’re as efficient as possible in terms of their own energy consumption
Continuing to care for our equipment to ensure it lasts as long as possible and recycling wherever possible
Switching to using more plant-based alternatives for our consumables
Continuing to make sustainable choices with our clients’ printed items
We're proud to offer registered charities and not-for-profits an exclusive, discounted rate when collaborating on projects, helping them to deliver their invaluable work. In all, our discounts total around £20,000 per year in donated services.

Each year we’ll re-evaluate whether there are any measures we can take to reduce our impact moving forward and offset our footprint via a number of reputable organisations worldwide.
We endeavour to use as many carbon-neutral third party digital services as possible. Where this is not possible we will offset the energy that we are responsible for.
We use electricity responsibly and switch off any electrical items when not in use.
The building in which our Lincoln studio is based uses solar power.
We ensure that all equipment is well looked after and is built to the highest standards.
Heating is adjusted with energy consumption in mind.
The studio team use public transport and walking or cycling to work where appropriate.
For long-distance client meetings, a video call is always our primary recommendation.
As a team we work remotely up to 2 days a week.
When purchasing goods or outsourcing services we consider the environmental performance of our suppliers as well as the impact of the goods (favouring environmentally sustainable options over cost).
We re-use or recycle our waste wherever possible.
We minimise the use of paper in our studio space.
