Ticket Tailor is now a certified B Corp: Our journey so far

“We’ve always believed that growing a business is about so much more than just profit. B Corp gives us accountability and direction to grow better, not just bigger.” Jonny White CEO/founder

In 2020 we started our journey to becoming a B Corp. Two years on - after months of rigorous assessment - we’re excited to say that Ticket Tailor is now officially a B Corp! We’re the first independent ticketing platform to become certified and are thrilled to have joined a global community of over 5,000 B Corps who, like us, believe in doing business responsibly.

Measuring, reducing and removing Ticket Tailor’s carbon output

Measuring, reducing and removing Ticket Tailor’s carbon output

The Ticket Tailor company vision is 'Growth on Purpose', which drives us to grow our business for the sake of the greater good of People and the Planet.

This vision grew from a quiet but important change we made last year to our company’s governing documents to legally commit ourselves to a ‘triple bottom line’ approach to business. In short, meaning we exist not just for profit, but also for the good of society and the environment. Measuring and understanding our carbon footprint is a huge part of this, and we have worked again this year with the awesome team at Supercritical to calculate our 2021 carbon emissions. Read on to find out how we want to go the extra mile in our carbon commitments.

We’re doubling our climate donations this Earth Day

We’re doubling our climate donations this Earth Day

The Ticket Tailor team are committed to combating the climate crisis. As a fully independent platform, we have the privilege of deciding exactly how we want to spend the money we make and one thing we are passionate about is ensuring we use a proportion of that money to donate to good causes.

As a team, we have collectively decided to channel those donations to charities that help to remove carbon emissions from the earth. To ensure we always prioritise giving to charity, we have committed to donating 1p (1.3c) for every ticket sold on the platform to climate causes. When you sell a ticket online with us, you’re helping to give back.

This Earth Day we’ve decided to double our climate donations. We will be donating 2p (2.6c) for every ticket sold on Ticket Tailor this Earth Day (22nd April, 2022).

Ticket Tailor is now a carbon neutral business

In addition to donating 1p for every ticket sold to a climate cause, we want to practice what we preach and to run our business in a sustainable way too.

Over the last few months we've been understanding Ticket Tailor's impact on the environment and working out how we can become a carbon neutral business.

In the post below we explain how we worked out the carbon we've emitted since launch and about how we are actually removing that carbon from the planet. We quickly figured out that it's not as simple as just planting a few trees!
