Corporate sustainability: Doing our part to care for the planet

Intuit has long been focused on making a positive impact on climate, a significant issue that directly affects prosperity among communities, ecosystems, and businesses. That’s why Intuit is on a journey to reach net-zero emissions by 2040 and is committed building resilience so that all communities can prosper in a changing climate.


Our net-zero commitment

Intuit is committed to reaching net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across its value chain by FY2040, which is in line with the Paris Agreement of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and achieving net-zero global emissions before 2050.

As part of this commitment, Intuit’s science-based near-term and long-term emissions reduction targets have been validated and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a global body that enables businesses to set ambitious emissions reductions targets in line with the latest climate science. Intuit is committed to achieving these targets by prioritizing direct emissions reductions, or decarbonization, across our value chain. Any residual emissions will be neutralized, if applicable, in line with SBTi criteria before reaching net-zero emissions.

Our science-based targets include near-term targets of reducing absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 42% by FY2030, from a FY2022 base year. We also commit that 80% of our suppliers, measured by emissions covering purchased goods and services, will have science-based targets by FY2027.

Our commitment also includes long-term targets which commits to reducing absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 90% by FY2040, from a FY2022 base year. Additionally, Intuit has also committed to reduce Scope 3 GHG emissions by 97% per million USD value added (gross profit) by FY2040 from a FY2022 base year.

Carbon reduction projects across our global real estate portfolio are a key component of our net-zero strategy to address emissions. This includes investing in the decarbonization of our facilities and fleet vehicles, as well as expanding procurement of renewable energy across our campuses. To address and reduce Scope 3 emissions, we're working collaboratively with our suppliers. This year, Intuit launched the Supplier Emissions Reduction Program to influence suppliers to take climate action and provide them with the tools to get started, as well as to recognize suppliers that are advanced in their commitment to sustainability. 

Our net-zero commitment is a huge step forward for Intuit, and we’re laying the groundwork to meet our goals across our Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. We'll continue to provide updates on progress towards our corporate sustainability goals.

Beyond our net-zero targets

In an effort to take more meaningful action against climate change, Intuit has committed to reducing two million metric tons (MT) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions by 2030, outside our own operational footprint. This goal was announced in 2019. Moving beyond our own organization, our Climate Positive program leverages our scale and resources to maximize our impact by empowering our employees, customers and community partners to join us in taking action that not only reduces emissions, but results in tangible socioeconomic benefits in underserved communities. As of FY23, Intuit's Climate Positive program has reduced nearly 500,000 metric tons of CO2e, moving us closer to our 2M MT goal.

Empowering our employees

Intuit employees are key contributors to our climate efforts, and we're committed to building sustainability into our employee experience and workspaces. Our Well-Being for Life program includes reimbursements to employees up to $1,300 annually for sustainability-related purchases, ranging from e-bikes to solar panels for their homes. We also partner with EnergySage to make it easier for our employees to explore solar energy options, as homeowners or renters. In addition, Intuit is working to make it easy to purchase more sustainable office supplies and electronics, by highlighting less carbon-intense options like those with the Amazon Climate-Pledge Friendly badge.

Creating a sustainable workplace

We're committed to creating a sustainable workplace that encourages our employees to thrive and brings us closer to a net-zero future. Intuit campuses offer sustainability-driven menus, ongoing waste diversion efforts, and an increasing amount of sustainable commuter programs that, encouraging low- carbon options like public transit. This year, we piloted International WELL Building Institute certification in order to validate that our design standards, operational protocols, and policies prioritize occupant health and well-being. Intuit will also be opening a new LEED Platinum building on our Mountain View, California campus later this year that will showcase energy efficiency, on-site renewable energy, and waste conservation features.
