What is a Carbon Commitment?

At Lemongrass, we advocate for carbon pledges, personal commitments to reduce emissions within our organisation. We believe in collective efforts to combat climate change and aim to achieve net zero by 2038. Each team member has pledged specific actions to reduce carbon emissions, reinforcing our shared commitment to sustainability and bringing us closer to our net zero goal. You can find out more about carbon literacy at the Carbon Literacy Project website.

Emily's Carbon Commitments:

  • Extending laptop lifespan – reducing the demand for new product and the environmental impact of manufacturing.
  • Continue to encourage the wider team at Lemongrass to include ‘impactful change’ agenda point for all calls/meetings with clients – a chance to discuss good practice, improvements and where clients can improve.
  • Cut work travel (scope 3) as well as cut plane travel for journalists. Encourage media to take the train or ferry instead of plane for individual and group media trips.
