Go Big, Go Green: Building a sustainable future

For years, we've helped financial institutions thrive in a changing world. Now, we understand the urgency of climate action. We're taking steps with our Go Big, Go Green strategy, built on these three pillars:

  • Planet: We're investing in a healthier planet by reducing our environmental impact and supporting initiatives that protect our future.

  • People: We're empowering our people to be sustainability champions, fostering a culture of environmental responsibility within our organization.

  • Partners: We believe in collective action. By collaborating with our partners and peers, we can create a more sustainable future for all.

Join us as we Go Big, Go Green. Together, we can build a thriving world for generations to come.

Sustainability at our core

We believe sustainability is more than a buzzword. Change starts with measuring our environmental impact across our entire value chain (partnering with Normative). We actively support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are part of the UN Global Compact.

Greening our way forward

We're proud of our green journey since 2022. Now, we're setting ambitious emissions reduction targets aligned with the IPCC's well-below 2°C pathway. Additionally, we'll purchase high-quality carbon removal to offset remaining emissions. This not only compensates for our footprint, but also raises awareness and supports CO2 elimination projects.

Our net-zero journey

Taking action

Exciting projects are underway. Here's a glimpse into our current efforts:

Reducing energy use

in our offices and switching to renewable energy, where possible

Engaging with our suppliers

to set clear expectations and drive sustainable climate action

Minimizing our travel

and encouraging less carbon-intensive means of transportation

Continuous monitoring

of our greenhouse gas emissions across the globe

Going green across an entire company doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years of full dedication from senior leadership, all the way down. But we’re passionate about our carbon net-zero goal, and we’re excited to see what we accomplish next, together.

Impact

Rooted in innovation: The Backbase Company Forest

At Backbase, our commitment goes beyond banking technology to include positive environmental impact. We're proud to introduce the Backbase Company Forest, where each employee has been gifted a tree. This initiative is more than just planting; it's about revitalizing through treecovery—an innovative method that restores dormant tree stumps with a significantly higher survival rate. Together, we're giving new life to our planet.
