Technology provides the potential for businesses to achieve tremendous efficiencies. Not only can it deliver great economic results, but also provide real environmental benefits. We want the benefit of the technology we provide to be greater than the impact of our business. Our environmental ambition is to use technology to reduce more harmful carbon emissions than our business, and our clients’ businesses, produce.
We’re tracking our environmental performance every year to make sure we continue to achieve our ambition. We'll continue to help our clients to make a difference by helping the use technology to reduce their carbon footprint and the amount of e-waste they produce.
Our research indicates that the use of technology between our financial years 2014-2018 could save our clients:
2.8 million tones of carbon
and USD 2 billion in travel and energy costs
as well as preventing 4,000 tones of electronic waste from going to landfill

In 2016, we achieved a major milestone of our environmental ambition by becoming carbon netural, meaning what we have saved clients in carbon footprint exceeds the amount of carbon we’ve produced. We achieved this by:
Tracking environmental impact and performance
  • helping our clients reduce energy by moving their IT workload to the cloud
  • providing our clients with immersive telepresence and video-conferencing systems that help reduce travel
  • improving our clients adoption of visual communications through MSVC
