We want to have positive climate impact through what we do and how we operate. But we’re focused on more than climate action alone. Creating a better world is about working together, combining solutions, and taking action where it matters. It’s about halting biodiversity loss, improving livelihoods, and creating resilient food systems.
We treat our climate impact – the number of tons CO2e offset - as a primary measure of success. In addition, we’re committed to having environmental and social impact through our portfolio, our partners, and our own actions. Below are the key metrics we’ll be keeping track of to measure our impact.

WALKING THE TALK
CLUB LEAF CARBON FOOTPRINT
Club Leaf’s total carbon footprint in 2021 came to a total of 19.46 metric tons CO2e (19,459 kg CO2e). Since Club Leaf was a primarily remote working company in 2021, there are no emissions found in scope 1 and 2. All our emissions are found in scope 3. This is because we offer digital products & services, and any emissions relating to heating or office equipment are included in our remote working calculations in scope 3.
TONS OF CO2E COMPENSATED
Our key impact indicator is the number of tons of CO2e we have compensated. The graph on the right shows how many tons CO2e we have compensated for and retired since Q4 2021. At the end of 2022 our total tons CO2e retired comes to 4109. For a full overview of retired credits visit our Club Leaf Public Impact Ledger.
Our goal for 2025 is compensate for a total of 1,000,000 tons CO2e. It’s an ambitious goal. However, let’s make this upcoming year a year of great progress, so we can give a positive update in next year’s Impact Report.
GREEN TIPS PERFORMED BY OUR COMMUNITY
Performing green tips is essential to our philosophy because it helps to reduce our carbon footprints. If we want to be in line with the Paris Agreement, we need to reach an average global carbon footprint of 2300 kg CO2e! Quite a challenge considering the average carbon footprint in the Netherlands – Club Leaf country of origin – is over 8000kg CO2e!
To provide you with some inspiration we created Green Tips across five different categories: ‘At Home’, ‘Getting Around, ‘Travel’, ‘Food’, and ‘Shopping’. So far, our community has performed a total of 1708 Green Tips.
Our goal is ambitious: a total of 50,000 green tips performed by 2025. We can’t wait to grow our community of action takers and seeing more people adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
NUMBER OF COUNTRIES IN OPERATION
Hello, Salut, Ciao, Hola, Haigh!
We want to make a sustainable lifestyle accessible to everyone around the world. That’s why one of our KPIs is focused on the geographic spread of our impact, both our B2C app and our B2B endeavours.
Our B2C app is currently available in seven countries: the Netherlands, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, and Luxembourg. As our team is growing, we are working hard to scale the geographies of our app. Is your country already listed? If not, don’t hesitate to send us an email and we’ll see what we can do!
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2023 AND BEYOND
Throughout this report we have tried to emphasize one cornerstone message, we’re in this together. Action is required by all of us, and we hope to combine forces so we can change the tides when it comes to climate action. We’re happy to have started this journey in 2021, and we’re now looking ahead to make impact in 2023. We want to express our gratitude for everyone who has contributed to this project so far. From our colleagues to our partners, our stakeholders and our funders. Without your contributions we couldn’t have started the journey which we are so excited to continue with.
Writing this first impact report makes us excited for what the future holds. In the years to come we will give it all we’ve got to ensure a better planet for us all.
