Our pledge to sustainability
We’re a climate positive workplace, believing in ‘made to last’, ethical production, and supporting sustainability for a better world.
Artfinder has always put our community and the environment at the forefront, and becoming a B Corp has made this official.
Net Zero by 2030
We sell thousands of artworks globally every month and while we love supporting our artists, we acknowledge that this comes at a cost to the environment. That’s why we’ve made some big changes to reach our goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2030. It’s a big undertaking but we’re fully committed to taking care of our planet by building a more sustainable art marketplace.
Why we’re doing this
We want to take a stand to help combat the effects on climate change. Together we can build a more sustainable future for all, so we’ve begun a number of initiatives to offset our environmental impact.
“Businesses need to start with a thought shift; it is no longer detrimental to their bottom lines to invest in sustainable solutions. It actually can affect this positively, as consumers become increasingly conscious of the actions of a company, rather than just its products.”
How we’re taking action
As a people-centric art marketplace, we are committed to building a sustainable future through our community of artists, art lovers, and employees. We’re really proud to have taken several big steps toward our net-zero goal:
We’re working with climate social action enterprise Ecologi and UK charity Trees for Cities to tackle the climate crisis through planting trees. Planting trees is one of the most effective ways businesses can offset carbon at large scale. That’s why we’ve pledged to plant one tree for every artwork sold.
It’s a team effort
Even small actions can have a big impact. We practice what we preach and offer 3 paid charity days per year. We also match up to £250 a year of donations to UK charities. It’s our way of ensuring we give back to the community and make a positive impact outside of the office.
Investing in sustainable partnerships
We’re extremely proud to be an internal Climate Positive Workforce but we also want this to echo throughout our wider community. Being a B Corp, we don’t just do business – we do good. That is why we partner with sustainable organisations wherever possible.
