Why Carbon Net Zero?

We all have a responsibility to protect our planet so, with the UK government promising to reduce carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, we’ve committed to being Carbon Neutral by 2030 and achieving Carbon Net Zero status by 2050. With businesses contributing to nearly a fifth of the UK’s carbon emissions, this is a commitment we’re passionate about and we hope to help others reduce their environmental impact too.

Our SME Climate Commitment

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 ours, need to step up and make changes to ensure we take climate action and commit to net zero emissions before 2050 if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Our commitment seeks to follow the SME Climate Commitment and cut our emissions to net zero by 2050, to reduce our carbon emissions as quickly and effectively as possible. We believe that by pledging to the commitment ourselves, we can help other businesses do the same by supporting them through sustainable electronic recycling.

How can an ITAD help with your sustainability?

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. Our business 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.

Our Sustainability Journey

We are aware that for our environmental initiatives to make a difference to our planet, they need to be sustainable long-term. That’s why we’re making sure our initiatives are investments into improving our services and general practices, aiming to reduce emissions not just for the next 5, 10, or 15 years, but for good.

Find out what we’ve changed so far and how we’re working towards our Net Zero by 2050 pledge in our annual sustainability report.

The report covers every aspect of how our business has adapted to reduce its carbon emissions and environmental impact. Using Scope 1, 2, and 3 tracking for our emissions, we outline our outputted and saved carbon emissions to identify areas of our processes we can improve in the future.
