Our Little Footprint

At Littlefish, we recognise that climate change is one of the most serious environmental challenges currently threatening the global community and we understand we have a role to play in reducing our carbon footprint.  

Littlefootprint Logo

We are committed to responsible energy and environmental management and have implemented an Environmental Management System certified to ISO14001:2015

In 2023 we are launching our ‘Littlefish Little Footprint’ campaign to provide an umbrella for all our environment initiatives and activities and further re-enforce our goals throughout the business. 

Our Targets

Our environmental targets have been set and are fully supported at director level within the organisation; progress and delivery against these targets is reported back to the board. Our CPO is directly involved with the direction and delivery of our environmental management plan. Environment training forms are mandatory at induction of all new starters.

  • “Net Zero by 2050”

    At Littlefish, our dedication to a sustainable future drives us to set ambitious goals. We are firmly committed to achieving ‘Net Zero’ status by the year 2050, as part of our overarching sustainability strategy.

  • Carbon neutral for scope 1&2 by 2025

    To achieve carbon neutrality for scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025. We are implementing a comprehensive approach that encompasses both reduction measures and offsetting strategies.

  • Scope 3 by 2023

    As part of our ongoing sustainability efforts, we have set a clear target to address scope 3 emissions by the year 2023. We recognise the significance of including our supply chain in our emission calculations and are fully committed to baselining our scope 3 emissions by the end of that year.


  • Baseline “non-reportable” scope 3 by 2025

    Whilst home working is currently not reportable under scope 3, at Littlefish our service is our people, and we have a dynamic range of employees who work from home during part or all of the week. Because of this, we believe that a full reflection of our emissions includes the energy used by our employees in their homes and we have a responsibility to support our staff in reducing the carbon footprint associated with home working.

  • 100% re-use or recycling for our WEEE waste by 2030  

    In an era of increasing electronic waste, commonly referred to as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), the need for sustainable waste management solutions has become paramount.


Sustainable Partnerships

Weee charity logo
WEEE Charity

To reduce the amount of WEEE waste that ends up in landfill all our old laptops and electronic items are donated to WEEE Charity who reuse and recycle them to sell on.  

WEEE Charity train volunteers who are unemployed, or faced with disabilities or learning difficulties, in a safe working environment to improve their skills and prepare them for full time employment. 

Money made from this is donated back into the local community to help relieve poverty.

Fruitful office

To help improve health and wellbeing we provide unlimited fresh fruit for our staff, this also helps reduce package waste from unhealthy alternative snacks. 

For every fruit basket we buy - Fruitful plant 1 fruit tree. This helps to mitigate the effects of global warming, deforestation and provides an income to support local communities in Malawi, Africa. 

In 2022 Littlefish bought enough fruit baskets to plant 705 trees.

Sustainable sites

At Littlefish, we are committed to maintaining a sustainable site that aligns with our environmental values. We understand the importance of minimising our ecological footprint and taking proactive steps to preserve the planet for future generations. Here are some key practices and initiatives we implement to ensure a sustainable site:

  • Carbon neutral offices – we offset our scope 1&2 emissions via “co2balance”

    Zero waste to landfill – we separate recycling at site and general waste is re-used for fuel via energy from waste plants.

    94% of our waste at our Sheffield site is recycled through a combination of onsite segregation and general waste sorting by our waste management contractor at the waste transfer station.

  • 50% reduction in our commuter miles by switching to hybrid working

    “Refuse to use”. We actively do not use single use plastics – no plastic cups, cutlery, or coffee pods at any of our sites, just good old fashioned ceramic cups, glasses and proper cutlery.

    Upgraded lighting to LED removing old fluorescent tube lighting across sites and installed light sensors.

  • In 2021 we completely removed our Pool cars in favour of remote meetings and public transport

    Increased availability – and encouraged use of – video conferencing.

    Installed hand dryers at Nottingham sites to reduce paper towel use.

  • We encourage green travel through:

    “Bike2work” bike purchase scheme.

    Fully paid-for city centre bike parking at a nearby secure car park.

    Discounted tram and bus passes.

    Reducing waste by donating unused food and items to local homeless support services.
