We’ve started our ambitious journey to become a Net Zero Business
We’re really excited to announce we are beginning our journey to becoming a Net Zero business by signing up to the Net Zero Tech Services Initiative. We are working with climate action platform Net Zero Now to calculate our Greenhouse Gas emissions as the first step on this journey. We’ll then create a reduction plan to cut emissions and compensate for any unavoidable emissions before setting a target date to become Net Zero.
With the world in climate crisis, the global scientific community agrees that reaching Net Zero is the best chance we have of keeping global warming to manageable levels. The UK government has set a target for our economy to be Net Zero by 2050, and while many tech firms want to take action, they often lack the necessary knowledge and tools to get to Net Zero.
The Net Zero Tech Services Initiative, developed in partnership with leading trade associations TechUK, Tech Nation, BIMA and the Good Business Charter, helps tech services businesses achieve Net Zero simply and cost effectively. At its heart is a sector-specific protocol that set the roadmap to Net Zero for the industry. The protocol has been peer reviewed by organisations representing the sector and sustainability and climate experts, and is freely available at www.netzeronow.org. The Initiative also includes a dedicated digital platform that supports firms on every step of the journey to calculate their carbon emissions, set targets, get tailored reduction plans and compensate for unavoidable emissions
Jo Wright, Co Founder, cloudDNA says:
“We’re delighted to begin our journey to becoming a Net Zero business. We know our staff and customers want to see us take action on climate change and understanding the sources of our emissions is the first step. We’re determined to reduce our emissions and build a more sustainable future for our business, our customers and ultimately our planet. ”
Simon Heppner, Executive Director of Net Zero Now says:
“It’s an absolute pleasure to have cloudDNA join us on the journey to becoming a Net Zero business. Every tech services firm across the UK now has the tools to take action on the climate crisis. Tech services firms underpin many other sectors of the economy and tech has a huge role to play in powering the transition to a Net Zero economy. I encourage more firms to get on board.”
Earlier this year we took a big step as part of this journey in closing down our office, moving to a 100% remote working model for our team. You can read more about that here.
