Sustainability Efforts:

Above all else, Wren’s mission is to help reverse the climate crisis. The company claims to “remove or offset at least twice the amount of carbon the organization and its employees are responsible for” and shares an annual report outlining “team and leadership demographics, executive and CEO pay ratios, and programs and strategies employed to build a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization.”

When members calculate and pay to offset their carbon emissions, 20% of their payment goes towards keeping Wren running and 80% is sent straight to climate projects that plant trees, sequester carbon, push for change, and/or conserve natural ecosystems.

All projects on Wren’s platform have been evaluated against 90+ indicators and cross-checked against peer-reviewed research to ensure they meet the company’s climate impact and systems change standards.

When choosing projects, Wren has also stated that its goal is to “support the systems change needed to build a sustainable and equitable future in which human and planetary health is secure. To support this, we choose projects that contribute to social, cultural, political, and economic change.”

The company also considers how its projects advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and it prioritizes “projects that center the voices of those on the frontline of the climate crisis – such as Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities.”
