Pawprint is an employee engagement platform for climate action. Our main focus is embedding sustainability across the goals and mindset of businesses and helping everyone at all levels play their part. It’s true that one person turning off a light isn’t going to solve the problem, but if large groups of people act, spend and speak in a purposeful way…big change is possible!

That being said, we recognise the scale of individual versus business’ carbon footprints, so we are actively seeking out ways to help the latter align with science-based net zero too. Currently, we deliver data back to business customers to help them make informed decisions about the direction of their operations. We have big plans to do even more in this space.

In terms of what it’s like to work at Pawprint, we’re a certified B Corp, Living Wage Employer, and 1% for the Planet member. We strive to walk the walk and act as a shining example for all stakeholders.

A note on diversity: to beat climate change, diversity of thought and experience is essential. Pawprint is dedicated to hiring great people from a wide variety of backgrounds – if your experience (life or work) has something to add, please let us know in your cover letter!

Social and Environmental Responsibilities:

Pawprint is keen to ensure that all employees are socially and environmentally responsible and that management decisions are considerate of these responsibilities at all times. There needs to be a balance between the economy and the ecosystem, hence we make all decisions based on their impact in the following areas:

  • Environmental - all efforts are made to undertake business in an environmentally friendly manner. For example, we have a no flight policy for domestic travel and employees have the freedom to work flexibly where possible
  • Philanthropic - we will actively support our nominated charities through financial donations each month and support employees in using charitable days to volunteer for causes personal to them
  • Economic - we will strive to build a strong business financially with the aim to invest further in developments that allow us to extend our reach and drive further carbon reduction globally
  • Ethical - we will always consider the ethics of our business partners and suppliers, to ensure we support fair trade and fair working practices and any investments we make will be environmentally conscious

To ensure we achieve this as an organisation we will use these four areas as a checklist for all business decisions we undertake, and will share them internally with all staff so they can be fully aware of our process and policy.

  • Spending decisions based on value, not cost. We have a hugely important and urgent mission, supportive investors and a high quality team - no false economies here.
  • Working on something that matters - addressing climate change is the world's biggest problem
