The climate emergency has been at the forefront of our minds for a while now. We knew we had to take action – not just for Bookster, but for our valued clients who want to make positive changes in the world. (Robin Morris, Director)

Why does Bookster care about the climate?
Because it's important.
As individuals and as a company we all believe in the importance of protecting our environment.
So how are we doing this?
As individuals we all play our part.
Even before we changed our office, all members of the team used public transport, electric cars or travelled to work under their own steam.
77% of the team eat no meat.
100% of the team use Green energy in our homes.
In the office:
In September 2018 we changed all Catering disposables for our events to Vegware; plant-based disposable cups and plates which are commercially composted with food waste.
In October 2018 we changed event food to snacks with no plastic waste.
In October 2021 we decided to reduce our office footprint by moving to a smaller co-work office.
In October 2021 we began to offset commercial flights for international business travel.
In October 2021 we began to use electric cars and trains for travel within the UK.
In December 2021 we launched Bookster and Stripe Climate to support clients in their efforts to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
