Sustainability Council

As the innovators of the 21st century, we have a responsibility to do good. So we’re building a framework to champion change and encourage BIMA members to take action.

About the council

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.

Our Key Pillars

Offset
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.

Influence
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.
For companies who design and build websites, BIMA has also launched the world’s first set of open guidelines for developing low-carbon websites. Find out more on the Web Environmental Sustainability Guidelines website.
