We are living in unprecedented times. Accelerating climate change poses an overwhelming challenge to all life on Earth. The scientific community has agreed that a 1.5°C increase in average global temperature is the ‘safe’ limit for our planet and its inhabitants; at the current trajectory, it is estimated we will reach this ‘safe limit’ as early as 2030. Based on science and our lived experience, it is obvious to us that there is a climate emergency to which we much respond immediately.
At Optimised Energy, we are committed to taking action and recognise the unique and powerful role that we play as purpose-driven businesses to help reverse climate change, both through our own efforts and in helping our clients through our Net Zero service.
To help solidify our commitment, we recently joined the B Corp Climate Collective. The Climate Collective is a member organisation of the UNFCCC's Race to Zero campaign, and consists of a group of Certified B Corporations, working in tandem to take action on the climate emergency.
Its mission is to demonstrate the collective power of businesses to transform commerce and to create an inclusive society and environmental regeneration. It requires them to commit to taking bold steps towards climate resiliency by using advocacy, cross-sector collaboration, corporate action, and the capital markets to stop emissions and drawdown carbon and improve global well-being.

Upon joining the Collective, Roy Bidder, Head of Operations for Optimised Energy, had this to say….
“It is great to be a part of movement consisting of like-minded businesses dedicated to creating an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system focussed on tackling climate change. This is the tip of the iceberg for us. We have some exciting plans in the pipeline which I look forward to sharing soon”.
