Have you ever thought about how many carbon emissions are generated by online activity? At Karve, we believe each of us can contribute to a solution. We signed up to Ecologi, a UK based organisation that believe in empowering the billions of us who care to support climate change solutions. Together, we are working to reduce our carbon footprint, create a climate-positive workforce, fund Gold standard sustainability projects and help plant trees worldwide. We’ve enrolled all of our experts with Ecologi’s monthly climate-positive subscription. We’ve also committed to plant a spinney, (that’s 10 trees) for every new employee and a thicket, (that's 50 trees!) for every new customer.
