News Spotlight COP26 – Our part in a UK Net Zero future

As world leaders turn for home after the opening days of COP26, leaving their teams to thrash out the difficult details, climate change is at the front of everyone’s minds. The terms ‘carbon’, ‘fossil fuels’ and even ‘beef’ have almost become dirty words. However, we’ve been quietly working towards the UK’s net zero aims for quite some time. Here’s how.

Plant trees from your laptop

One thing we’ve learned at QEM over the past months is that COVID is no longer an excuse for inaction. And while the global pandemic is still at the forefront of all of our minds, it doesn’t mean we can shelve other pressing concerns, like the climate crisis.

The internet’s carbon footprint

At QEM, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment in every way we can. However, we hope not only to reduce our carbon emissions as we work, but to address them holistically – in how we live and relax when we’re far from the office, too. One really simple lifestyle change is switching the way we search the internet. You might not immediately think that one little Google search would make much difference to the climate change crisis, but scientists have established that just two web searches can generate the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle. When our daily wanderings around the web add up, that amounts to quite a lot of energy used!

A greener way to browse

So, what has QEM done about it? We’re adopting Ecosia as our chosen search engine, and are asking all our employees and associates to do the same. Ecosia is carbon neutral – it works much like Google, but Ecosia invests advertising profit into planting trees where they’re needed most. The free browser extension already has some 15 million active users and has planted over 111 million trees across the globe, to date.

Planting to help global communities

They don’t just plant any old trees where they fancy, either. Ecosia’s efforts not only protect our environment, but have a positive impact on the livelihoods of the poorest, and the future of our most precarious animal species. From finding alternatives to palm oil, to restoring Ethiopia’s water cycle, to safeguarding orangutan habitat, empowering women, and to growing coffee for peace, Ecosia’s projects are strategic, proven, and critically important. And we can support all of them with a couple of minutes’ set up.
