Working with Gamma as an environmentally pro-active company means that:
By choosing us, you can demonstrate green credentials. The Government has made energy consumption of its ICT systems carbon neutral - and extending this to the lifetime of systems (from manufacture to disposal) by 2020.
With any application or service we provide, you can have a solution that not only helps the environment but also makes good business sense.
As a next-generation full network operator and one of the UK's largest providers of communications services and related applications, we recognise the need to set an example to the industry. We take our responsibilities very seriously and are totally committed to being both a green and efficient operator.
We follow these three steps to become CarbonNeutral:
The company is independently assessed by Greenstone for its carbon footprint, taking into account all utility usage, business travel and waste across each site, as well as the electricity consumed by the network.
To be a certified CarbonNeutral® company, we need to demonstrate that we have worked to reduce our emissions. We take steps to improve energy efficiency and to reduce emissions through investment in our soft-switch network (which replaces a power-hungry hardware infrastructure) and we also promote recycling of waste, a ride to work scheme and car sharing as well as encourage our staff to make conference calls instead of travelling by car to business meetings.
Each year, we offset our remaining net emissions by investing in voluntary emissions reduction projects. So, for every 1 tonne of net CO2 emissions that Gamma emits, we're reducing 1 tonne of CO2 somewhere else in the world.
