Savings and investment app, Moneybox, has today revealed that it has signed the UN Climate Neutral Now pledge and achieved carbon neutral status.

Moneybox has partnered with Alectro, a carbon analytics company, to help trace its carbon output and implement a programme to offset carbon emissions.

The investment platform joins over 300 other organisations that have pledged to work towards a carbon-neutral world and Moneybox hopes it will inspire other young companies to join the initiative. 

Charlie Mortimer, co-founder of Moneybox said: “We are incredibly excited to announce that we have fully mapped our carbon footprint as a business and that Moneybox is now carbon neutral. Achieving carbon neutral status has been an important mission for us, and it's something we're really proud of to have achieved so early in our journey as a company.”

“We will continue to explore ways that we can reduce our existing carbon footprint in everything we do by maintaining a focus on recycling, low levels of business travel and choosing suppliers with a similar transparent and proactive approach,” he added.

Mortimer also revealed that the savings and investment app is currently looking into how it can include customers on its carbon-free journey. 

Moneybox also recently launched pensions, following a year of teasing the launch, and as part of its pension pots, it offered users the opportunity to invest in its Socially Responsible pension, of which 20 per cent of beta users did.
