This sustainability policy guides the strategic direction and operations of our organisation.
At CheckCarbonFact, our sustainability policy is aligned with our vision, which is a world where today’s actions inspire a green, serene, and resource-secure tomorrow for future generations.
Being a social accountability organisation with a mission to foster the adoption of sustainability practices and inclusive and equitable climate action by everybody everywhere, our services easily fit into our desire to eliminate our carbon footprint and record significant carbon handprints.
At CheckCarbonFact, we have our antennae on relevant developments on the world stage that impact the trajectory of sustainability and climate action. However, we keep our compass focused on globally established benchmarks and best practices set by science and the international policy apparatus. Accordingly, we have identified the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Compact as anchors for our strategic goal and objectives. Specifically, our sustainability policy mirrors the core components of the UN Global Compact – Human Rights, Labour, Environment, and Anti-Corruption – and the following SDGs:
SDG 1: No poverty
SDG 5: Gender equality
SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth
SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
SDG 10: Reduced inequalities
SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities
SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production
SDG 13: Climate action
SDG 17: Partnership for the goals
At CheckCarbonFact, our strategic goal is to achieve net zero and expand our carbon handprints across the UK and beyond by supporting businesses, from micro-enterprises to multinational corporations, in developing and implementing sustainability and relevant climate action policies. This is based on our belief that when businesses engage in sustainability, it enhances the chances of meeting the UK’s commitment to reduce emissions by 78% in 2035.
Drawing from our strategic goal, we are committed to achieving the following six broad objectives and cascading them into the work we do with clients and our relationship with stakeholders:
Our strategic objectives are broken into 10 SMART targets that guide our operations and organisational growth. These are:
CheckCarbonFact is committed to transparent reporting and communication of our sustainability efforts and we hereby invite stakeholders to hold us continually accountable to this policy.
