What are our sustainable initiatives?

We want to lead by example. The first step we have taken to achieve this was to improve our GHG calculation methods. In the 2019 financial year (FY), we calculated our carbon footprint, focusing on the emissions generated from our offices, business travel, employee commuting. This year, we have calculated our carbon footprint for FYs 2020-2022 in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. This has led to an enhanced reporting scope. Since FY 2019, we have gained more insight into our emissions – their nature and sources – by investing in data collection and reporting processes.

One way we plan to improve our efforts involves designing processes that rely on actual data instead of the proxy data we are currently using for some of the emissions sources. Moving forward, we will be focusing more on sustainably investing in reducing emissions from our operations.
