We are working with Positive Planet undertake actions that make a difference to our environmental sustainability. The programme includes every area of Career Connect’s work across the UK, and our charity will be sharing updates on our progress throughout.
Our progress so far
- We undertook a major transformation in our information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure, decreasing ICT energy usage by over 30%.
- We operate a hybrid working policy, allowing people to work at home, helping reduce carbon emissions from travel.
- We have no fossil fuel companies in our investment portfolio.
“While we have always done as much as we can to reduce our carbon emissions. We are taking our commitment to the next level by working with Positive Planet.
“We are learning to embed new approaches to sustainability into everything we do. This includes everything from infrastructure and processes to everyday actions we can take during our workday. It will also be a great learning opportunity for our staff on embedding sustainability into everyday actions and into their lives.
“As a charity and an employer committed to creating a better future, we are excited to start this journey to further reduce our carbon impact on the planet.”
