Focus Group, renowned as a provider of essential business technology all in one place, have announced their ambition to achieve carbon neutrality and have appointed Auditel, a leading UK Cost, Procurement & Carbon Solutions Company, to support them on their journey towards Net Zero.

Focus Group Co-founder & Director, Ralph Gilbert said, “As a group, we have already done so much to try and minimise our impact on the planet, 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.”

Robert 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. We look forward to working with the team and their supply chain to help them achieve an industry recognised standard of carbon neutrality.”

Focus Group have committed to spending the next 6 months conducting a detailed audit of all material Green House Gas (GHG) emissions within their business, including the challenging task of tackling Scope 3 emissions. This initial stage of Carbon auditing will deliver Focus Group with 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.
