COVID-19 struck in March, all of our classes, events and training halted. We immediately pivoted online and managed to reach 505 beneficiaries in the last third of our financial year. Our Social Impact Report 2019-20 gives an insight into how we continued to achieve our mission during this challenging year.

This has been the single best thing she has done in lockdown.

At The Philosophy Foundation (TPF) we aim to continually improve our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods In 2019/20 we produced 10.5 tonnes of CO2e which is 1 tonne less per individual than most other offices.

TPF Carbon intensity: 2.6 Tonnes

Average office carbon intensity 3.6

Each year we offset our energy usage, using Gold Standard UK calculator Climate Care. In 2019/20 our offset payment went to growing trees (largely in schools) in the South East of the UK.

In 2020 we doubled our offset to be Carbon Neutral Plus
