oboloo Joins Tech Zero
oboloo has joined Tech Zero, a group of tech companies who are joining forces to accelerate progress to net zero, support tech companies in making a climate action plan and use tech to help the customers they serve live more sustainably.
Tech Zero is led by Bulb and industry body Tech Nation, and was founded by fast-growing British tech firms allplants, Babylon, Citymapper, Faculty, GoCardless, Habito, Hopin, Moneysupermarket Group, OLIO, Onfido, Revolut, Starling Bank, what3words and Wise. It’s backed by the UK Government and is aiming to sign up 1,000 UK tech companies before COP26, the UN climate conference taking place in November 2021.
By joining the taskforce, oboloo has committed to measure all of their emissions and set an ambitious net zero target by the end of 2021. We’ll also commit to:
- Annually measure and publish all scope 1, 2, and 3 carbon emissions.
- Publish a climate action plan by the end of 2021 which includes short and medium interim targets.
- Appoint a member of the executive team to be responsible and accountable for their net zero target, report progress to their board and on their website every year.
- Communicate climate commitments in other meaningful ways, including to customers.
The taskforce has produced the Tech Zero toolkit to demystify climate jargon and make it easier for tech companies of all sizes to set a net zero plan. They’ll be part of a network of companies committed to accelerating progress to net zero.
Tech Zero is working in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), as well as the government’s Council for Sustainable Business and the UK’s Net Zero Business Champion, Andrew Griffith MP. It’s working with the government to boost green investment and help UK tech companies grow by creating green tech jobs in all four corners of the UK, giving businesses the resources they need to invest in greener choices and encouraging consumers to switch to green technologies.
