The Team

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.”

Charles Fallon

Chairman & Investor
Somerset, UK

"Since planting a 2,000 tree mixed English deciduous woodland in 2004 I’ve been interested in ways to make a material impact to reducing my carbon footprint. As an advisor and investor in the technology sector Spherics offers an opportunity to make a genuine impact across business, potentially on a global scale."

Sophie Bidwell

Board Member
East Hampshire

"I am an engaged entrepreneur who left the world of finance to pursue a purpose-led journey, convinced that sustainability is both an existential imperative and the greatest business opportunity of our time. This is why I was so impressed with Spherics and its one-click carbon diagnosis. A “just do it” kind of business with immense global potential. I am proud to be an early investor and Board Member.”

Duncan Oswald

Head of Climate Science
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."

Rebecca Burgess

Chief Engagement Officer
Bristol, UK

“I’m inspired by Spherics’ ambition and opportunity to scale, to help millions of businesses get to net zero. I want to live in a world that balances profit, people and our planet equally and we need scalable, affordable and easy solutions to do this. I truly believe Spherics offers this!”

Tom Foster

UX Designer
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."

Emma Cain

Visual Designer
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.”

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.”

Chloe England

Sales and Marketing Assistant
Bristol

"I believe one of the most important things we need to be focusing on and making changes for is our environmental impact. I feel so lucky and inspired to be part of Spherics, encouraging change and striving towards a greener future. We need to protect our world, there is no planet B."

Caroline Wilson

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."

Conrad Langridge

Marketing Manager
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!"

More than just a job

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.

Our Values

Ambitious

The climate crisis is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. To tackle it, we need to break free of the thinking that got us here and embrace bold new ideas about business, people and purpose. We drive forward solutions that can be replicated and scaled.

Honest

We treat people with respect and empathy. 
We trust our employees, and they trust us. We 
are transparent about our problems and our progress. We contribute to our community. 
We stand up for everyone’s rights and have a 
diverse team that represents the world we live in.  

Scientific

We pursue real, measurable carbon reduction through science, not speculation. The power of data guides us. We’re committed to a long-lasting impact and are sensible and realistic about how we achieve it.

Earthly

The beauty and wonder of the natural world inspire and drive us. We believe in stepping away from our screens, getting outside and remembering why we’re working so hard in the first place. Our decisions are made with nature as a primary stakeholder.

Simple

Our products and services are highly technical, but what sets them apart is their simplicity. If people can’t use something, it doesn’t really work. We design for real problems and approach the problem with ease, affordability and scalability in mind. We never forget that our customers are humans, not robots.

Join the team

We’re always on the lookout for talented, dedicated, positive people to join us. We take recruitment very seriously and strive to provide a transparent, fair and personal experience. We promise to read all applications and get back to you as quickly as possible. We screen applications on a rolling basis and therefore encourage you to apply as soon as you can.

We’re conscious that currently the team is made up of only white people and we’d love to change this! We actively support a culture which celebrates diversity and inclusion and will be launching our own social justice commitment this Summer.
