Our Cause

i.

We owe it to future generations

We owe it to future generations to leave them a sustainable and fairer world and our goal is to help everyone better understand how their spending affects the climate crisis. But to do this in time to save the planet, we need to affect change at scale. And this is why we work with financial institutions - so we can reach their millions of collective customers and drive change on a global level.

Our Impact

We believe that in order to solve sustainability challenges like the climate crisis and to drive positive impact in the world, we need to recognise the problems that frame these challenges, and know how we can best contribute. Our work needs to be laser-focused, collaborative, and at-scale.

Walking The Talk On Climate

At Cogo we’re not just focused on generating shared impact with our customers. We’re also a business striving to act more sustainably in its operations.

i.  

Our Footprint

Our carbon footprint for 2021-2022 was 18.35t CO2e (comprising our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions), and we are a Toitū Net Carbon Zero certified organisation. We have also set a target to reduce our total reported absolute Scope 1 + 2 + 3 emissions by 30% by 2030, aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative’s SME Target Setting guidance. Cogo is also a NZ Climate Leaders’ Coalition signatory.

ii. 

Raising Awareness

As a climate-focused tech business we're aware that a big part of our carbon footprint is out of sight, and linked to cloud-based tech service providers. We are helping to raise awareness about the indirect impact of cloud-based services on carbon emissions, and to encourage more tech companies to account for this.

iii.

Working Together

We also partner with some incredible organisations who are waving the flag for business with purpose, including the BCorp and Living Wage movements. Cogo has been a Certified B Corporation since 2019, and is a Living Wage certified employer in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

Our amazing team

We’re a fast growing global community of engaged people, combining our expertise and passion to create positive change in the world. Aligned with Cogo’s values and mission, we believe the purchasing power of consumers can transform the way businesses operate and have a significant impact addressing the climate crisis.
