Doing Our Part to Care For the Planet

Climate change severely impacts opportunities for communities, customers and employees to prosper. Intuit has made a decade-long commitment to positively impact the planet and create a better future for all.


Intuit’s 50x by 2030 Goal for Climate Action

We know that reducing our operational carbon emissions is not enough. Climate change is bigger than us, so we also asked ourselves how can we do more. We declared our commitment to reducing global carbon emissions by 2 million metric tonnes, 50 times our 2018 footprint, by the year 2030. Moving beyond our own organization, we are using our scale and resources to maximize our impact to be climate-positive by empowering our employees, customers and communities to join us in climate action.

In 2021, we committed to helping 1 million small businesses reduce their carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. We’ve brought together sustainable business solution providers to help small business owners reduce their impact on the environment. Visit our Climate Action Marketplace to learn more.

Intuit is focused on making a positive impact on climate change – one of the most significant issues of our lifetime. Even if companies achieve the goal of reducing their carbon emissions by 50% by 2030, it will not be enough. At Intuit, our operations have been carbon neutral since 2015 and we’ve long been focused on decreasing our carbon footprint. Now, we are also committed to helping the planet beyond our own walls and scale positive impact.

Helping Our Employees

We’re providing sustainability solutions for our employees’ personal lives while educating them about their impact. 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.

Helping Our Customers

As one of the leading companies for small business accounting, we’re helping to connect our customer base and network to solutions they want, but don’t have easy access. We apply our unique approach to problem-solving and innovation to create new sustainability solutions, especially for our small business customers, which make up half of the U.S. and global economy and are almost exclusively left out of the climate change solution equation. Last November at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), we unveiled the Intuit Climate Action Marketplace and made a public commitment to help one million U.S. small businesses reduce their carbon emissions by 50%—and we’re just getting started.

Helping Communities Prosper

Intuit remains committed to supporting programs that help communities make sustainable choices, starting with the communities where Intuit has a physical presence. For example, in partnership with the Bluefield Economic Development Authority in West Virginia, we financially supported the installation of UV-solar-powered smart glass in a local cafe to increase cost and energy efficiency. In FY23, we’ll roll out additional community projects focused on solar installation and aligned to Intuit’s Prosperity Hub School District Program.

The Importance of Partnerships

Creating solutions that solve for the long-term effects of climate change requires collaboration with strategic partnerships. We work with key partners across the education, financial and small business sectors to amplify our impact. For example, Intuit is supporting the construction of a solar project in Jackson, Tennessee, in partnership with Clearloop, a company that works on cleaning up the grid and expanding access to clean energy by building solar projects in American communities getting left behind. This project will reclaim nearly 60 million pounds of CO2 over its lifetime operation.
