Genous has been selected for the Impact Fifty Award - Emerging Companies
Genous has been recognised as one of the most impactful companies to work for and awarded the Impact Fifty Award 2023. Impact Fifty recognises only 50 companies for their commitment to creating a workplace environment where all employees feel they are making a genuine impact on an important cause.
Impact Fifty is the latest series by Hyer, deep diving into the world of impact and beyond. Exploring the most meaningful places to work and going behind the scenes to meet the most defining companies.
Genous is a decarbonisation concierge that helps UK households make substantial adjustments to their carbon footprints. There has until now been no easy, co-ordinated way for these households to reduce residential and car emissions, which account for 30% of controllable greenhouse gas emissions. It's difficult for most people to understand the problem and find a workable solution, though these must be found if the goal of transitioning to net zero is to be realised. Genous has helped people install insulation and solar panels and switch to sustainable heating sources and electric cars and will be scaling its activity levels and service range in 2023.

The culture behind Genous
"Our culture is about respect and delivery – at multiple levels. At the planetary level, we’re trying to do the right thing for the Earth and to be effective in reducing the impact of climate change. At a customer level, we’re trying to help people, deliver a great service and get them to a position they are happy with and where they are making a difference.
So at an employee level, our culture should also respect individuals’ particular needs, aspirations, and their best ways of working while also making sure that we deliver the best outcomes for our clients and the planet. We actually think that respect and delivery focus go naturally together, even though many corporate cultures prioritise one at the expense of the other.
We all want to be proud of what we’ve done, of what we’re doing, and of what we’re going to do. We want to know that it matters. And we want to want to do the best we can because that’s how we’ll make ourselves proud"
