Our ultimate goal at Climate Benefits is to have a significant environmental impact. We do that by engaging companies and equally engaging their workforce.

However, Climate Benefits is a lot more than environmental impact. In this blog post, we highlight how we save you time, streamline processes, and reach your employees in a more direct way— all while fighting climate change. 

Ease of Use and Time Saving

Climate Benefits makes it really easy for companies to start removing carbon emissions. Here’s what we’ve done to make this easy for companies to implement: 

  1. We’ve done the work to research, evaluate and aggregate different carbon removal projects, advocacy organizations, and volunteering opportunities into one platform. With Climate Benefits, you can trust that the organizations are trusted. 
  2. We’ve made the process for employees to contribute their monthly stipend extremely easy and intuitive. Additionally, we’ve developed programs like ‘employer matching’ that companies can set up quickly. 
  3. We handle all the calculations on the back end related to the monthly stipend, employer matching program, rolling over funds and recurring donations. The experience is really simple and intuitive with a lot of heavy lifting in the background to save you time on the benefits program.

Transparency and Reporting

  1. Feedback loops have been built into the product so your team can track employee engagement and gain a better understanding of how employees view and value sustainability.
  2. We’ve centralized all the impact made across carbon removal projects, advocacy organizations, and volunteering opportunities onto one metrics dashboard that can be used for impact reporting. 

Recruitment and Retention

  1. Recruitment and retention of employees will improve if your company prioritizes climate change action. Increasingly, professionals are making career choices based on how they align with a company’s stance on climate change. 
  2. Implementing Climate Benefits is a very easy way to start having impact at scale, while also being able to add a new benefit to your job descriptions that shows your commitment to sustainability. 

"Companies that take a stand on climate change may be able to attract tech talent, according to a survey by Blind, a network on which professionals anonymously discuss workplace issues. Nearly half of the 629 employees surveyed at leading tech companies said that a company's efforts toward climate change affect where they want to work."

Employee Engagement and Customization

  1. Climate Benefits is a platform that engages employees on the topics of sustainability and has a direct impact on the environment. Increasingly, employees are expressing a strong interest in climate change action from their employers. 
  2. Climate Benefits is fully customizable. The benefits, monthly stipend, employer matching program, communication about the program and email invitation is all customizable.

“This gap between corporate ambition and action is leading to a high percentage of employees confused over what they need to do to help reduce greenhouse gases at work. There is also declining trust among employees towards their organisation’s capability to deliver on sustainability commitments. More ambitious science-based climate action is needed, and employees must be involved in the journey.” Read more about why it’s important to engage employees on climate change action.

Environmental Impact

  1. Whether you’re a small business or large corporation, there’s growing pressure for climate change action. All of us have a role. With Climate Benefits your company can get started on making an impact, and being able to communicate that impact with stakeholders. The world is moving in a direction where companies, no matter how big or small, have a responsibility to offset their carbon emissions.
  2. The market shows that climate change pressure is coming to the corporate world. “Clients and customers are most often named as sources of significant pressure, but employees, regulators, civil society and investors are not far behind.Read more about the increasing pressure to commit to environmental impact here.
