Impact

Leaving a mark that goes beyond great digital experiences.

At the centre of everything we do is the drive to leave the world around us a better place - good design, development and marketing shouldn’t cost the Earth. We constantly challenge the processes and decisions of our business, team members and clients to help everyone move toward a more sustainable future.

We are committed to supporting local businesses where possible and we intend to purchase a minimum of 50% of our core products and services from local independent suppliers within Somerset.

Part of the impact that a creative digital agency has on the world comes through the work we produce for clients and we strive to create work that influences positive behavioural change. Challenging bias and championing representation through embedding wellness and diversity in everything we make.

Environmental sustainability.

We hold ourselves accountable as a business and as individuals by reporting on and reducing the carbon emissions that we produce, whether that be through using solar panels, eco-cleaning supplies or reducing car usage through hybrid working. This commitment even extends to the work we do for our clients through consciously designing and building work that limits environmental impact, such as using FSC-certified materials and B-Corp certified suppliers.

B-Corp certification.

By meeting rigorous standards and becoming B-Corp certified, businesses can show their commitment to social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. It not only shows a company's genuine dedication to responsible business practices but also its socially conscious consumers, suppliers and investors. As part of an ongoing effort to do good as well as doing good work, Teapot is currently going through the process of becoming B-Corp certified.

Green hosting.

Our dedication to sustainability extends beyond physical materials to the digital world. We offer environmentally safe hosting services in the form of eco-friendly data centres that are powered by 100% renewable energy. This advanced technology is ISO 14001-certified and has an impressive Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.14 - by partnering with Teapot you can be sure that your work meets a very high standard.

Let's get ethical.

Culture and community.

Throughout Teapot’s history, we have worked alongside local schools and colleges to offer entry-level employment opportunities - from a week of work experience to long-term apprenticeships. By creating roles that can inspire future generations of local talent we have found many of our longest-serving team members who go on to maintain industry-leading continual professional development.

Charity work.

We work alongside regional charities through community outreach and fundraising to help the less fortunate, local biodiversity and other worthy causes. We also undertake pro bono work for an elected charity partner each year - everything from brand development and website updates to campaign messaging.

For the digitally curious - investing in the region’s digital future.

Digital Somerset.

This is an exciting movement made up of passionate individuals and businesses who want to ensure that Somerset evolves into a hub for digital innovation and collaboration. Teapot is based in Somerset, and is also a partner of this great CIC, so understands the huge benefits that the region could welcome as a digital centre.
