Our Roadmap towards a greater Positive Impact
Our roadmap will help us to deliver, measure and report our progress in the upcoming years. We’re focusing on 6 key areas:
We are in the midst of a climate emergency and an ecological crisis we can’t ignore. To avert the worst impacts of these crises, the world needs to get to net-zero emissions by 2050 at the very latest. We openly acknowledge that we are implicated and that businesses like us need to act with speed and bold ambition.
We have been working hard to measure our carbon footprint and now have a rigorous impact baseline, which includes every part of our supply chain.
Our next priority is turning words into actions — in short, reducing our emissions and developing our carbon removal strategy by using science to inform our decisions. You can view our Impact Report at the link above to explore our full carbon footprint breakdown and goals for the future.
Ooni Impact Fund
Through our partnership with 1% for the Planet, we donate 1% of our turnover to social and environmental causes. We want to create the most meaningful impact possible, aligned with the five UN Sustainable Development Goals we have pledged to focus on.
Our overarching aim is to minimise waste across our offices, operations, products and packaging and make products that last.
We focus on durability and reparability and we’re continuously searching for ways to make our products more resource-efficient and circular.
We’re proud to say that our oven packaging is at least 97% recyclable and made of renewable materials. Our goals for the coming years include developing 100%-recyclable packaging and increasing the percentage of recycled material we use to protect our ovens as they make their way to you.
People represent another key measure of success for us, so we make the happiness of our customers, our teams and the welfare of everyone in our supply chain a huge priority. We support the ten principles of the UN Global Compact with respect to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
In 2021, we established our ethical trade programme and put strong foundations in place. We’re mapping all of our production suppliers, undertaking due diligence, conducting audits and working with our suppliers on continuous improvement plans.
We’ve identified our production supply chain as our highest risk area, but at Ooni, Social Responsibility also covers all the communities we impact. We want to work together with our teams, our suppliers and the Ooni community to share the joy of making pizza whilst enriching the broader system that we’re all part of.

Transparency & Reporting
We want to show everyone what we’re doing, where we’re at and what’s to come (lots!), and we want to inspire other companies to follow our lead. With so much corporate greenwashing happening around us, we believe honesty, transparency and action are the way forward.
We’ve published our second annual Impact Report as a key part of this: check it out above. We’ve produced this SECR document that highlights our assumptions made and methodology used in our carbon footprint calculations for our 2022 Impact Report. You can find more about our impact journey in our 2021 Impact Report here.
We’ve also joined the Better Business Act Coalition, calling for a change in UK law to ensure every company takes ownership of its social and environmental impact.
We’re a kind business filled with kind people. Being a “company for good” is in the Ooni DNA. Because of this, we’re ambitious and always push to do better!
It will take a lot of work to swiftly reduce our business climate impact, and our team and community will play a key role. We’ve partnered with several initiatives to equip and empower our team to take climate action at home and at work: Pawprint, Count Us In, Do Nation and organising our first Impact Day for our team members to get involved with COP26 in 2021.
Climate change is an all-encompassing issue, and as such, it demands collaboration and collective action. We need to work together with our partners and the Ooni community to create dialogue and collectively achieve our climate goals.
