Being a successful business while keeping environmental impact down is perhaps the great challenge of the 21st century.

That’s why Anthony Collias and Jacob Wedderburn-Day founded Treepoints. Based in London, this sustainability consultancy boasts a clever subscription-based model to help users understand and counterbalance their carbon emissions instantly.

Our judges were particularly impressed by Treepoints’ wide range of B2B and B2C services, which makes it simple for every type of user to sign up and get started on their planet-saving journey.

Individuals and organisations can input details about their lifestyle or operations into the Treepoints calculator. Based on the results, they can establish a monthly fee to offset emissions and support environmental schemes like planting trees and collecting plastic.

Larger businesses that are legally required to report on their carbon footprint.can pay an annual fee to get detailed analytics from the Treepoints carbon footprint tracker. There’s also an ecommerce integration that online sellers can add to their stores, giving customers the option to plant a tree with every purchase.

Even more handily, Treepoint users can take advantage of a canny rewards system, turning any positive environmental impact into digital ‘tree points’. These green goodies can then be exchanged for exclusive gift vouchers from Treepoints’ eco-friendly partners to further incentivise eco-action.

It’s clear Treepoints has already made a significant difference to the climate crisis. The company has planted 300,000 trees since it started in 2017, as well as offsetting 6,500,000kg of carbon dioxide.

Using Treepoints, both individuals and businesses can join the fight against climate change from the comfort of their own desk.

Like the great redwood sequoia, we think it’s an idea with lots of growth potential, and we’ll be keeping an eye on how Treepoints can make businesses better and greener in 2023.
