Sustainability has been in Agilitas’ DNA for over 30 years.

Our operating model enables customers to remove themselves from hardware ownership, take advantage of our circular economy and extend the lifecycle of the tech that both they and their customers use.

However, in 2021, we recognised that we needed to go further so we pledged that we would reduce our carbon emissions with the aim of becoming a Net Zero business before 2050. As a business we tracked elements of our carbon footprint such as our energy consumption, our wastage and business mileage.

This led us to make some carbon and cost reduction decisions such as replacing all the warehouse lighting to time sensor LEDs, getting an electric van to transport items between our Nottingham hubs and getting a cardboard baler to reduce the number of cardboard waste collections.

We also wanted to make sure that we were accountable across our entire ESG commitment and so therefore signed up to EcoVadis and Science Based Targets. In our EcoVadis year 1 assessment we scored bronze, in the second year we scored silver and we are now going for gold as we continue to improve our ESG processes.

Our focus for the last quarter has been on expanding our data collection so that we can calculate our full operational carbon footprint across scopes 1,2 and 3. In order to establish a true baseline reporting year and to ensure we are not just marking our own homework, we have partnered with Auditel who are ensuring we capture information as accurately and honestly as possible. The data will then be verified by an external auditor.

What does this mean for our customers?

There are a lot of claims out there from organisations about being a sustainable business, but without data to back this up, it is difficult to understand to what extent.

We understand the importance for our customers that claims need to be more than just words. By tracking more ESG data, we can provide our customers with information they need to accurately track their supply chain carbon footprint too. It can help us make efficiencies in the areas that are going to make the most impact and gives us a measurable way to track our progress.

We are really excited with our sustainability roadmap and would like our customers to be a part of it too! If you would like to discuss how we can align our sustainability efforts, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
