A message from our founders

We believe that everyone of us can play a part in protecting the environment. There is so much we can do as individuals, with our friends, our families and our colleagues – and that is why we set up Giki.

We want to help people live more sustainably and we believe that starts with good information, provided at the right time in an easy to use way.

Our Net Zero commitment

Our Tech Zero pledge – We’re committed to net zero 

At Giki Social Enterprise, we’re committing to reach net zero emissions. We did it in 2020 and we intend to keep doing it!

This means limiting our company’s carbon footprint in line with keeping global warming to below 1.5°C – the critical level of heating to avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis

The commitments we’re making

As part of our net zero commitment, we will:

  • Measure all our global organisation’s greenhouse gas emissions, including scope 3, and report them publicly each year.
  • Publish more details about how we plan to reach net zero by the end of 2021.
  • Appoint a member of our executive team to be responsible and accountable for our net zero target.
  • Communicate our climate commitments in other meaningful ways, including to our customers.
  • Report our progress on short and medium term targets to our Board annually, and on our website.
