Why did you carry out a carbon assessment?
Our commitment to sustainability has been evident through our internal reporting of Scope 1 and 2 emissions since 2018. However, we recognized the need to comprehensively address Scope 3 emissions—a substantial component of our carbon footprint. In 2022, we partnered with Greenly to gain a holistic understanding of our emissions. This decision was partly influenced by industry leaders such as Microsoft and Salesforce, who emphasize the importance of working with eco-conscious partners, making it essential for us to be well-prepared for inquiries regarding our environmental efforts.
Regarding regulations, is this something that you also are trying to anticipate?
In line with our proactive approach, we are preparing for forthcoming regulations that will impact our business operations. Voluntary reporting is an essential step for us, ensuring we align ourselves with emerging environmental standards.
Choosing to work with Greenly for our carbon assessment was a well-informed decision. Our interactions with Greenly's Account Executive, Theo, and Account Manager, Martin, were highly productive, and we had full confidence in their abilities to support our goals. Their expertise, coupled with the user-friendly platform, made Greenly a fitting choice. Plus, Greenly's focus on the technology sector meant there was a strong affinity with our industry, further solidifying our choice.
What are the main lessons you have learned from this carbon assessment?
Our carbon assessment with Greenly helped us to identify the prominence of Scope 3 emissions across our organization, with business travel being a notable contributor. While this insight wasn't entirely unexpected, the extent of Scope 3 emissions (constituting approximately 94%) was eye-opening. The assessment also highlighted our digital footprint, pointing to areas that warrant further exploration and mitigation.
Short-, Medium-, and Long-term Outlook: Our objective is to leverage the action plans recommended by Greenly to reduce emissions, in collaboration with their climate expert, Quentin, as we work on a Science-Based-Target reduction plan. These actions will pave the way for a more sustainable future for our business.
Impact Within and Outside the Company: Externally, we've observed an increased emphasis on sustainability in customer bids and tenders. The questions posed by customers, particularly regarding our sustainability efforts, have grown in frequency and significance. Furthermore, our investors, as private equity stakeholders, now request annual ESG reports. Internally, our employees are telling us that sustainability is important to them, with 70% saying it is important to them that we are a socially and environmentally sustainable business in our latest employee survey. This growing emphasis on sustainability among customers, vendors, investors, and our employees underscores its rising importance.
