World’s #1 Job Site Accomplishes Important Milestone on Path to be Net Zero by 2030
Austin, TX (August 11, 2021)– Indeed, the world’s number one job site, announced today that it has successfully achieved carbon neutrality. The environmental milestone of CarbonNeutral® company certification, in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, was achieved in collaboration with Natural Capital Partners, the leading experts on carbon neutrality and climate finance. Indeed’s 2020 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were significantly lower than prior years due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and office closures. Indeed went above and beyond certification requirements and based the certification on 2019 emissions data. In 2021, Indeed supported projects that neutralized its GHG emissions across the company’s entire value chain (i.e. scope 1, 2 and 3). Projects that Indeed selected and supported include, but are not limited to the following:
“Our commitment to environmental sustainability is directly tied to Indeed’s mission to help all people get jobs. In order to make the world – and the world of work – a better place, we are dedicated to supporting our communities and our environments. Achieving carbon neutrality as a company is an impactful first step in our larger environmental sustainability journey,” said LaFawn Davis, Indeed Group Vice President of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance.
“We are delighted to work with Indeed as it demonstrates the vital role that business must play in achieving a net zero transformation across the world. In this critical decade of climate action, we need to use all the solutions available to deliver the change we need. Indeed’s CarbonNeutral® company certification and wider sustainability strategy are a showcase for how corporations can deliver meaningful action on climate change, ” said Saskia Feast, Managing Director, Global Client Solutions at Natural Capital Partners.
Achieving this environmental milestone is an important step toward the company’s overall sustainability goals announced in June. The carbon neutrality certification comes several months ahead of its targeted public commitment date. Indeed will also aim to achieve net zero in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. To do so, the company will work toward transforming how it operates to meet its 2030 goal in collaboration with its suppliers, employees and communities in which it operates.
