Moving Forward: Our Carbon Neutral Pledge

Published on: April 19,2022 Published in: Insights News Sustainability

From day one, i3Secure has been committed to creating positive outcomes by putting people and their environments at the heart of everything. Now more than ever, we need to be more aware of our impact on the environment and make changes to lessen the effect.

As we look ahead to the future, it’s clear that the need to protect our planet and its resources is more urgent than ever. That’s why we’ve made a commitment to become a carbon neutral company by 2025. It’s a big goal, but we know it’s possible.

Here at i3Secure, we’re committed to doing our part to create a sustainable future. Our carbon neutral pledge is just one way we’re moving forward toward that goal, and we aim to get there through three key areas:

  1. Monitoring and reducing our carbon footprint through business change
    For one, we need to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to reduce our emissions. By modelling our own output, we can look at ways to minimize our impact. This means reducing unnecessary business travel, looking at how we work with our clients, and being aware of our actions.
  2. Supporting and incentivizing our teams in reducing and offsetting their personal footprint
    We’re also engaging with our employees to help educate and reduce their own emissions. Last year we launched our Salary Sacrifice electric car scheme, providing a more sustainable option for both personal and business travel.
  3. Working on a bigger scale
    We also need to make sure that we’re supporting projects that offset the emissions we can’t avoid. This includes investing in renewable energy, planting trees, and supporting other carbon-reduction initiatives which is why we’ve signed up to Ecologi, a paid scheme that offsets the carbon footprint of every employee, as well as offsetting any business travel. You can keep track of our efforts on our dashboard.

 We’ll be working hard to reduce our emissions as much as possible and offsetting the rest through projects that help remove carbon from the atmosphere. We’re already taking some important steps towards this goal, and we’re excited to see where we can go.

We hope that by taking this pledge, we can inspire others to do their part as well. Together, we can make a difference.
