"Cogo offers a truly flexible approach to work, which has been vital during a tough year with homeschooling, lockdowns and the rest, so having the full trust and support from the company to fit in work around family life and my own wellbeing has been incredible. I am not sure there are many places where I would feel so connected to a team of people I've never met!"

- Jane Michotte, Enterprise Business Director

"It’s about being part of something bigger than all of us. You know that everyday you’re contributing to a strong purpose and vision for future generations to come and doing it with a team of like-minded people, all striving for this goal. When your everyday is linked with this sort of purpose then it doesn’t feel like ‘work’ in the traditional sense."

- Milica Milenkovic, MarComms Manager

Our impact

Through Cogo, businesses and consumers are connecting to take action on global social and environmental issues. The positive impact that our platform is enabling is real and measurable and we've got the numbers to prove it.

We partner with some incredible organisations who are waving the flag for business with purpose. Cogo features their accredited businesses on our app to help you find thousands of businesses taking action on issues you care about.

At Cogo we're also walking the talk. Our carbon footprint for 2020-2021 is 5.10 tCO2e, this is comprised of our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. We have set an ambitious target to make sure that we are actively reducing, we are committed to net-zero emissions by 2030.

As a tech start-up we're also helping develop awareness about the indirect impact of cloud-based services on carbon emissions by working with Toitū to understand our carbon impacts.
