Doing Our Part to Care For the Planet

For over a decade, Intuit has been committed to positively impacting the planet and creating a better future for all. That’s why Intuit is on a journey to reach net-zero emissions by 2040 and is committed to empowering others to join us in taking climate action.


Climate Action at Intuit

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.

Why We've Set Net-Zero Targets

Climate action is a core part of Intuit’s corporate strategy as demonstrated by our multi-decade commitment to reducing our operational and value chain emissions. By setting science-based near-term and long-term targets, we’re moving towards a net-zero future and recognize the need for rapid and deep global emissions reductions.

Intuit is focused on reducing the impacts of 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. Intuit has been focused on decreasing its carbon footprint for over a decade by investing in energy efficiency upgrades and procuring renewable energy for our facilities. We will continue to drive meaningful emissions reductions as we embark on our net-zero journey.

Beyond Our Net-Zero Targets

In an effort to take more meaningful action against climate change, Intuit has committed to reducing two million metric tonnes (MT) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions by 2030, outside our own operational footprint. Moving beyond our own organization, our Climate Positive program uses 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.

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.
