In line with the Government’s commitment to be Net Zero by 2050 Tecknuovo have put together our Carbon Reduction Plan below.
Commitment to achieving Net Zero
Tecknuovo is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.
Emissions reduction targets
As a growing business we understand that although our carbon emissions may increase, we place a high importance on ensuring we do not have a lasting impact on our environment. Our dedication to behaving responsibly and minimising our environmental impact is detailed in full in our corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy on our website and read and signed by every new staff member.
Our policy dictates that where we can reduce our emissions, we do. Anything that we can’t reduce we offset through a strategic partnership with Trees for Cities. Since early 2020 we have been offsetting our Scope 2 emissions through this partnership.
To continue our environmental pledge, we have taken the following measures:
- 0% of our staff commute to the office by car, 100% of our staff use public transport, walk, or cycle to the office.
- We operate a hybrid working model, meaning we do not require staff to be in the office five days a week. This reduces the number of commutes to the office per week and our overall carbon emission from travel.
- 90% of our business travel is done by rail rather than air. Wherever possible travel to our client sites and business meetings is done by train as the environmental choice.
- Any resulting emissions are offset through our partnership with Trees for Cities.
We pledge to ensure our offsetting includes not only Scope 2 emissions, but also business travel, and employee commuting. We also pledge that we will increase the amount we offset to be 125% of what we create.
By expanding the offsetting partnership to be 125% of emissions created we will be ensuring we are a Carbon Positive organisation.
Carbon Reduction Projects
Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives
As a company we have always seen the importance of ensuring we do not have a lasting negative impact on the environment. At our office headquarters – in a The Office Group building – all electricity purchased is certified renewable electricity. Our CSR and Environmental policy, signed by all employees, dictates that we minimise waste and ensure electrical equipment, heating, and lights are turned off when not in use.
Where we cannot reduce our carbon outputs we offset. Since early 2020 we have been partnered with Trees for Cities, the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to create greener cities. Through this partnership, we have effectively offset the measured carbon emissions from 2019 and are currently in the process of offsetting 2020 emissions. Our ongoing partnership with Trees for Cities will ensure that we continue to offset our calculated emissions. From 2021 onwards we will be including emissions caused by employee commuting to the Scope 2 and Business Travel emissions. We also pledge to offset 125% of what we create.
