A Sustainable approach

 
Our goal is to help secure purposeful organisations so they can meet their own goals. As we do so, we want to ensure our impact on the planet is minimal. This page is dedicated to our transparency about our own impact, and how we plan on improving it as time goes by.

Our total emissions use (Metric tonnes of CO2 equivalence) for the year of May 2021 to May 2022 were 0.585 CO2e. 

All our emissions are within Scope 3 - Supply chain emissions, from services such as online subscriptions, advertising and very occasional travel.
According to Normative's Industry CO₂ Insights, the annual total emissions average for UK companies in our sector is 627 tonnes CO2e.

 

Our current sustainable practices:

  • We have no offices, all employees work from home, meaning we don’t commute or use unnecessary energy 

  • We conduct almost all work and meetings online. We don’t travel to clients or hold physical employee meetings other than 1-2 annual company meetups 

  • When we do need to travel, we use a train-first policy

  • We never print documents, and therefore don’t buy printing equipment, ink or paper.

  • We reduce our need to buy electronic equipment by using a bring your own device model (BYOD). If we do need to buy equipment, we have a refurbish-first policy (e.g. Circular Computing) and use sustainably minded companies such as Fairphone. 

 

Our target sustainable practices:

  • Using the green foundation project for our website hosting 

  • Transfer all company pensions to green investments 

  • Planting trees with every sale

  • Donating a percentage of new revenue to projects which are helping solve global problems. 

  • Reviewing the 100 smart ways to live sustainably for our employees' personal lifestyles. 

  • Choosing suppliers who are purpose driven and are using their influence to support good causes

 

We are very open to hearing ideas on how we can continue to do our bit. If you have any, please do drop us a note here: ashley@practical-infosec.com
