Intuit’s 50x by 2030 Goal for Climate Action

In 2018, we declared our commitment to reducing carbon emissions 50 times over by the year 2030. Moving beyond our own organization, we are now using our scale and resources toward maximizing our impact to be climate-positive by empowering our employees, customers and communities to join us in our commitment.

Employee Story 1

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%, it will not be enough. At Intuit, we’ve long been focused on decreasing our carbon footprint. We became carbon neutral for our operations in fiscal year 2015 and are now moving well beyond carbon neutrality to climate positive.

Helping Our Employees

We are dedicated to helping our 13,500+ employees find new ways to be more sustainable at work and at home. Intuit employees can now calculate their at-home carbon footprint and receive recommended solutions to reduce them. Additionally, we offer an annual $1,300 wellness benefit that can be used toward sustainability-related expenses, including home solar power, electric vehicles, electric bikes, energy efficiency improvements, water conservation solutions, composting systems and more. In July 2021, Intuit introduced a partner, YellowTin, to help U.S.-based employees make better informed decisions about switching to more cost-effective, electricity-based solutions.

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. Through strategic partnerships, we leverage our platform to help small businesses, both customers and non-customers, make a measurable, positive impact on the environment starting with a commitment to carbon reduction.

Helping Communities Prosper

Intuit serves as a catalyst for scalable climate solutions worldwide that can make accelerated progress toward reducing global carbon emissions. We work within our Prosperity Hub communities and economically disadvantaged communities to find new sustainability solutions that lower emissions while improving their financial well-being. Through our education partnerships, we’ve helped train and empower hundreds of local students to solve climate related problems within their communities to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create a positive social impact.

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. Intuit is a founding member of Drawdown Labs (part of Project Drawdown), a coalition of leading companies committed to next-generation climate leadership that meets the moment of the climate crisis. Intuit has also partnered with Tradewater, an international coalition bringing together leading companies to build a strategy to reduce their use of refrigerants within their portfolios of buildings.
