“Achieving Climate Active Certification demonstrates to all our stakeholders that we are proud to show our commitment in doing our part to make a positive impact on climate change.”
Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since November 2020.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
Achieving Climate Active Certification demonstrates to all our stakeholders (employees, customers, shareholders and the communities we operate in) that we are proud to show our commitment in doing our part to make a positive impact on climate change. We seek to engage with our supply chain to promote ethical and environmental conscious business practices, acknowledging that the changing mentality of the many will have a material impact on climate change.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
Carbon neutral certification enables us to:
- reflect the desires and passions of our employees;
- stand apart from our competitors in supplying a carbon neutral alternative, which is highly important to the industries we provide to;
- demonstrate our commitment to environmental impact disclosure to our shareholders, analysts and proxy advisors; and
- achieve financial benefits assessing and analysing our carbon footprint and waste management to identify cost-saving improvements.
What offset projects do you support?
A wind power project and a solar power plant project in India.
Why did you choose these projects?
We chose these renewable energy projects because they promote benefits for the environment. They provide valuable benefits to the impoverished communities they operate in, promoting employment opportunities and infrastructure to help lift living standards in these countries.
How can the community and customers support you?
The community and our customers can support us by promoting that Technology One can provide a Climate Active alternative that our competitors cannot. We encourage our staff to consider how we operate and identify, and suggest ways to reduce our carbon footprint and waste production.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
Now that we have established the process to be carbon neutral, we can now analyse the data we collated and identify where we can make the biggest impact to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce waste production.
What has been the impact of your action?
Since becoming carbon neutral, we can now work on a baseline for our carbon footprint, which we can use to develop initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint. Our employees have been enthusiastic and engaged in this process – this level of support was underestimated.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
Our advice to other businesses is that the process is not as complex as they would have imagined. Engage with a great consultant, and they will step you through the process.
