Datagraphic, a UK provider of secure outbound and inbound communications, has had its carbon reduction targets approved and validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), recognising its commitment to science-based sustainability.

Datagraphic has committed to achieving net-zero emissions from its operations by 2050. This includes a further objective to achieve net-zero emissions for its scopes 1 and 2 by 2030. Using the GHG Protocol and working with specialist energy engineers Pro Enviro, Datagraphic has measured and recorded carbon emissions from a baseline year of 2019. Together, Datagraphic and Pro Enviro have created a science-based decarbonisation plan with targets now validated by SBTi. By tracking CO2 emissions against the baseline year, Datagraphic has reduced carbon emissions by 46%, the company claims. This has been achieved with significant capital investment in renewable energy generation and energy engineering.

Peter Wells, head of sustainability and commercial manager at Datagraphic, commented, ‘Datagraphic is conscious of minimising its impact on the climate and therefore committed to decarbonising UK operations. As the only company in our sector with near-term, long-term and net-zero targets to be approved and validated by the SBTi, we’re extremely proud to be recognised for our science-based approach to sustainability.’

Peter added, ‘Datagraphic is delighted to lead the way for SMEs in delivering a quantifiable sustainable strategy. That said, we recognise that we can’t make this journey alone. By working with our clients, supply chain, community and partners on initiatives to improve sustainability, we know we can make a difference together.’
