At Xero, we’re committed to building a fast-growing but sustainable business. As part of our focus on social and environmental impact, we announced Net Zero @ Xero in November 2019. This is our commitment to offset 100% of Xero’s carbon emissions across all areas of the business for the year to 31 March 2019, and going forward.
Since we made this commitment, we’ve been working to determine our approach. We want to ensure we balance out the carbon emissions produced by our operations and major suppliers in a thoughtful way and have a positive impact on our communities and the planet.
I’m now proud to announce that Xero has offset 100% of its carbon emissions for the financial year ended 31 March 2019. We have done this by purchasing carbon credits across three separate carbon certified environmental projects and conservation schemes across the globe that are recognised under international standards.
