ITCS have signed up to the SME Climate Commitment, a partnership that allows SMEs to join the United Nations Race to Zero campaign.
SMEs make up to 90% of businesses worldwide- and they make up 99.3% of Welsh businesses. Together, we can therefore make a huge impact on cutting carbon emissions and protecting the planet.
The science is clear: we must halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by no later than 2050 to avoid the worst effects of climate change. As a company, we want to make sure future generations are also looked after, so we have signed up to the SME Climate Commitment.
As a forward thinking, climate and carbon-aware IT and Telecoms Managed Service Provider, we are always actively working to reduce our impact on the environment. By joining the Climate Commitment, we are committing to working with suppliers, clients and internally to take concrete steps to the reduction of our carbon emissions as a business.
Large companies are not the only places that climate change needs to be a focus. Cumulatively SME’s are a major source of emissions.
“October saw the delivery of our first electric car into the fleet. This is the first of many for ITCS,” says Brian Stokes, Managing Director, “This is just the beginning – we know more needs to be done, and we will be doing our best with our new build playing a big part in this initiative. With COP26 being hosted in Scotland, now is the ideal time to start upon our journey to Net Zero Carbon.”
