Studee sustainability

The climate crisis is one of the most important issues of our time and we all have a shared responsibility to take action

Why sustainability?

We feel sustainability and the climate crisis hasn't been tackled head on in the international education sector. It's been the elephant in the room for too long, which is why this year we've launched Trees for degrees - the one million trees project.

We want to do everything we can to reduce our own impact so in 2019 we measured our carbon footprint as a business and considered the broader impacts of our services.

We're making small but significant changes wherever and whenever we can. We're far from perfect but we believe lots of small efforts, repeated day in, day out go a long way to achieving our goal of becoming a carbon neutral business.

What we are doing

Here are just a handful of the things we’re doing as a small team to reduce our carbon footprint:

  • Our team members work from home on average two days out of five, which reduces CO2 emissions
  • We’ve replaced the majority of business meetings with video conferencing
  • We’ve reduced the flights we take as a business by over 80% in the past 2 years, and if we do fly for work, we offset the carbon emissions
  • We provide laptops to all team members, which require less energy than desktops
  • We use cleaning companies who use environmentally friendly cleaning products
  • We recycle waste paper, cardboard, plastic and tin cans
  • We’re paperless, meaning we favor digital files over physical ones
  • We shop local where practical and support local businesses
