How is S2S Group going to get there?
As stated on the SME Climate Hub website, ‘small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 90% of businesses globally’. This means that small businesses, like S2S Group, need to step up and make changes to ensure it takes climate action and commits to net zero emissions before 2050 to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
S2S Group’s commitment seeks to follow the SME Climate Commitment and cut its emissions to net zero by 2050, to reduce its carbon emissions as quickly and effectively as possible. S2S Group believes that by pledging to the commitment ourselves, itcan help other businesses do the same by supporting them through sustainable electronic recycling.
Waste electronics and electrical equipment (WEEE) is one of the fastest-growing waste streams on the planet. Because of recent advancements within technology, electronic products are becoming redundant more quickly, meaning they become waste.
This waste can harm our environment when improperly disposed of; leaking pollutants into our Earth, and wasting valuable internal materials. S2S Group seeks to prevent and limit this wastage of materials by offering businesses a service to recycle their electronic items.
Not only does this prevent electronics from going to landfills, but it also saves the carbon emitted in the harvesting of new materials and the creation of new products.
