It’s great to now have a framework to recognise that work and drive even more effort towards becoming carbon neutral.We recognise that our day-to-day operational activities and those of our customers have some impact on the environment. By partnering with Auditel we are making a clear statement of intent to reduce our own carbon footprint in a credible, meaningful, and measured way and to provide our customers with sustainability solutions that will benefit everyone.”

Rob Allison, Carbon Solutions Director at Auditel added: “We are delighted to be working with Focus Group, a genuine champion of sustainability in the IT, telecoms and connectivity sector.

This initial stage of carbon auditing will deliver Focus Group a detailed Carbon Footprint report produced to GHG protocol, Corporate Accounting & Reporting Standard.

“Personally, I cannot wait for the next stage of the programme when we can start to manage what we have measured. For me that is the exciting part of the journey as we look for ways to begin to decarbonise our activities to lower our Carbon footprint and make a meaningful difference for the planet and our customers.” Says Gilbert.
