Insight maintains its carbon neutrality

08 Oct 2014 by Mike Tisdall

We have just received our annual Greenhouse Gas Assessment for the financial year ended 31 March 2014 from our auditors, Pangolin & Associates, and have purchased the carbon credits required to ensure we remain a carbon neutral member of our clients' supply chains.

Our total emissions were up 10% on the previous financial year, with the greatest increases coming from our  growth-driven additional computer workstations and flights, but we used a little less power, fewer hotel rooms and taxis and less waste was sent to landfill.

 A better indication of how far we’ve actually come is to compare this result from the 2013/14 year to the year when we started this assessment process: 2007/8: our emissions have dropped 12.6% over that period despite adding the Wellington office to our physical footprint:

We continue to actively strive to minimise our footprint, particularly relating to the largest contributor: air travel. Where possible, we continue to utilise our video conferencing facilities while always considering the best option for our clients and their projects.
