We all know about the climate crisis and the challenges we face in the coming decades. And few are so well placed to do something about it.
As the world’s innovators we have an unrivalled ability to create the future, and a duty to ensure that future is sustainable. This council will champion sustainability in the digital sector and build a framework to enable BIMA members to take action.

Helping BIMA members to make an impact quickly through offsetting their estimated carbon footprint via partners like Ecologi.com. Whilst a longer-term plan to “Net Zero” is important, you may be able to create a “climate positive” (or “carbon negative”) workforce tomorrow for a lot less than you think.
Helping BIMA members to measure their carbon footprint more accurately. We’ve got simple tools and courses that can help you achieve this quickly. Measurement is critical in defining a sensible reduction strategy that targets the right areas.
Helping BIMA members with simple strategies to reduce their carbon footprint over the next few years to create your path to “Net Zero”.
From The Million Tree Pledge to B Corp, our goal is to help BIMA members take the next steps as well as making their actions more official.
Helping BIMA members influence others within our sector and through our combined client base. The Internet has a larger carbon footprint than the airline industry. The Green Pages can help any digital team create lower carbon digital solutions for clients.
Our council is led by James Cannings, Chief Sustainability Officer at MSQ and Neil Clark, Service Design Lead and Environmental Strategist at The Panopoly at Manifesto. They are supported by a team of industry experts who are all passionate about the environment and building a sustainable future.
