At Spherics we do things differently

We’re building a people-positive business. We recognise the unique individuality and 'super power' of every employee. We’re building a high trust workplace where everyone and everything is open, and decision making is encouraged at all levels.
All company decisions are made with the natural world as a primary stakeholder.

At Spherics we strive to be

Ambitious

We need to embrace bold new ideas and drive forward solutions that can be replicated and scaled.

Honest

We treat people with respect and empathy. We are transparent about our problems and our progress.

Scientific

We pursue real, quantifiable carbon reduction through science, not speculation. The power of data guides us.

Earthly

The beauty and wonder of the natural world inspire and drives us.

Simple

Our products and services are highly technical, but what sets them apart is their simplicity.

Who are we?

We’re a team of social entrepreneurs, data-driven analysts, carbon experts, tech nerds, and award-winning creatives and collaborators.

We are distributed across Europe, but our beating heart is in Bristol, UK.

George Sandilands

Co-founder & CEO
Bristol, UK

"We started Spherics to respond to the climate and ecological emergency. An estimated 200 species a day are becoming extinct, extreme weather events are escalating on an unprecedented scale. Business as usual is killing life on our planet. Small businesses are responsible for a significant proportion of global emissions, but lack the resources, tools and solutions to reduce or remove these emissions. We’re here to change that."

Ciaran Wood

Co-founder & CTO
Morzine, France

“The world is facing an ecological crisis and we all have to do our part to help. I co-founded Spherics with an ambition to use my skills and experience to help build the tools businesses need to make a difference.”

Mike Chatziapostolou

Co-founder & COO
Bristol, UK

“The natural world is facing pressures from human influence that present an existential threat to all complex life on our planet.  There is only one Earth and our future depends on protecting it.  Business as usual is no longer an option and that's why we have created Spherics.”

Duncan Oswald

Head of Climate Science & Investor
Fife, Scotland

"In 25 years of environmental consultancy, Spherics is the only company I have encountered which has developed a solution to get enough business on track to net zero quickly enough. This changes everything. When they asked me to help ensure that it was scientifically robust, I jumped at the chance."

Marina Traversari

Chief Operating Officer & Investor
Bristol, UK

"Spherics is tackling the greatest threat humanity has ever faced - the climate emergency. We can’t tackle something if we don’t fully understand our impact on it. Spherics takes a scientific approach to helping companies to quantify and address their carbon footprint. It’s a cause I passionately support and it’s exciting to be part of a company using technology and science to address it.”

Tom Foster

Head of Customer Experience
Bristol, UK

“In my lifetime the climate has changed dramatically, and it’s taken too long for the attitudes and behaviours that brought us here to show signs of evolving. I’m hopeful that human ingenuity can save the day but know that large scale behaviour change can only begin by understanding where we are today. Spherics makes this simple."

Conrad Langridge

Head of Marketing
Bristol, UK

"For me, Spherics is a dream place to work. I can't think of a more rewarding company to support than one which helps business owners understand their environmental impact, to ultimately drive positive change. The cherry on the top of the vegan cake has to be the amazing team behind the scenes, such a great group!"

Emma Cain

Head of Design
Hertfordshire, UK

“Whilst volunteering on a conservation project in Sri Lanka, I witnessed first hand the struggles nature is facing. The world possesses so much beauty and I believe we should all be doing as much as we can to protect it. Being a part of Spherics enables us all, collectively, to achieve this.”

Caroline Wilson

Senior Software Engineer
Buckinghamshire, UK

"Climate change is the defining crisis of our time. It affects us all and we must all share the responsibility to act. Spherics seamlessly enables businesses to find their path to net-zero. I’m proud to be part of a team helping steer us towards a better future."

Paulina Stypinska

Senior Software Engineer
London, UK

It’s important to me to make a difference in the world. Spherics - a company that’s not only focused on improving our global future, but that also cares deeply about the present and its team - is a perfect fit. I’m delighted to be working alongside such brilliant people.

Simon Forsyth

Environmental Lead
Bradford on Avon, UK

“Around two-thirds of a carbon footprint is emitted producing the goods and services we purchase - but that typically gets ignored because it’s the most difficult part to calculate. So when I realised that Spherics were planning to go straight at that bit, and rather cleverly, I just had to pitch in.”

Jordan Edrich

Research and Marketing Exec
London, UK

“Growing up in the countryside, I experienced first hand the value of nature and the importance of protecting it. As climate change became more and more apparent, I was inspired at university to learn about its impacts on people and the planet. I have the privilege of being part of Spherics, where I get to work to make a difference.”

Claire Cottis

Executive Assistant/Operations Manager
Bristol, UK

As a Bristolian I've been raised in a city surrounded by inspiring sustainable organisations. It's a privilege working for Spherics, knowing our technology gives businesses the tools they need to make change for good. I'm proud to be part of a fantastic team where there is a greater purpose behind our work.
