Tackling climate change together


Tackling climate change together

CFC has had a Climate Positive Workforce® since August 2020. Working in partnership with Ecologi, we have planted tens of thousands of trees to offset the carbon footprint our employees create at the office and when travelling.

We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and are building our own plan for reaching NetZero.

Social Impact

CFC for Good

CFC for Good is our effort to give something back and help improve the lives and well-being of others wherever possible.

Creating opportunity

We believe in lending our time, resources and experience to help young people choose their path and thrive.

We are also proud to work with Bright Network, an organization committed to connecting graduates and post-graduates of diverse backgrounds with professional career opportunities.

We have employees, partners, customers and families around the world, and we care about
making connections and supporting those communities in real and tangible ways.
