Company profile

 

We are Ecologi, now considered the market leader in collective climate action. We are a social enterprise who provide innovative and progressive tools: a subscription service to reverse climate change; a marketplace for climate action; and a tool for real-time carbon footprinting for business. Our mission is to avoid 50% of projected global emissions by 2040. The question is, how are we going to do this? Firstly, by rapidly helping businesses decarbonise their supply chain. And secondly, by supporting the world's best climate projects (like protecting the Amazon Rainforest) through our community carbon fund. For more information about Ecologi see here: https://ecologi.com/about.

As a team, we’re easy going and we take great pride in our work. From brand and marketing to product development and climate impact, we’re all striving to move the needle on the climate emergency. We celebrate our milestones and we have get-togethers every quarter (restrictions permitting!). Our culture is about pulling together, helping one another, putting forward good ideas and feeling part of something bigger than yourself.

With our 30,000 strong subscriber base, we’re now funding 1 million trees every few weeks. Impressive, but we’re only just getting started. Our goal is to fund billions of trees a month.

Are you the right person to help us achieve this?
