The Human Business
is Carbon Neutral
This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification as we saved the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as we produced.
This has been independently validated by "Go Climate Positive".
The Human Business is one of an increasing number of voices advocating a different approach to doing business. An approach that recognises the many challenges we are all facing but that tackles them in a sustainable and human centred manner.
Our ‘Meet Connect Refer’ community is for business professionals who believe putting human into business and connecting at a deeper more personal level is the only way for them to grow and prosper in a sustainable manner.
Whilst putting human into business is not always easy we believe it is always worth the endeavour because when inspired people come together the impossible becomes achievable.
We are committed to reducing our Carbon Footprint by:
1: Cutting emissions in half by 2022 and to Net Zero by 2030
2: Switching to green energy suppliers
3: Moving physical meetings to online then moving online services to renewable energy hosted services
4: Planting a tree for every member and planting further trees for every year they remain a member.
Our Net Emissions is the total amount of greenhouse gases we produced in the year once the amount we saved has been taken into account.
This is the total amount of greenhouse gases we produced in the year.

This is the total amount of greenhouse gases we saved in the year.
Our benchmarks allow us to compare our emissions with the average amount that other organisations in our industry sector produce.

We are removing carbon from the atmosphere by planting trees in the UK
We are investing in planting trees and managing woodland in the UK that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Our programme plants a mixture of native tree species that are selected for each location to match the needs of wildlife.
We account for each individual tree, and we maximise its ability to capture carbon for at least 50 years by nurturing and managing our woodlands to check that the potential of our trees and their benefits to the local environment is met.
We are reducing our customers' mileage by moving our meetings online
We have committed to move all our meetings online, saving 11kg CO2e per meeting. Over the next few years we will ensure that all of our meetings are hosted on services that use only renewable energy.
‘Go Climate Positive’ is a membership programme that makes it easy for businesses to calculate, reduce and offset their carbon emissions. It is designed to adhere to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and Corporate Value Chain Standard.
