Our commitment to carbon-neutral operations.

Computacenter has a longstanding commitment to sustainable operations, and we take a responsible approach to reducing our direct and indirect environmental impacts. We became carbon neutral for Scopes 1 & 2 emissions at the end of 2022 please insert and we maintained this for 2023. This has been achieved through increasing our own renewable energy generation and the proportion of energy we purchase from renewable sources, continued investment in energy-efficient lighting and equipment. This meant that we needed minimal purchase of carbon offsetting credits using Gold Standard offsetting schemes to achieve this milestone.

Direct Action

Our journey to Net Zero starts at home with direct action. Maximising the use of renewable energy for the future is key to reducing our direct carbon emissions across the Group. In 2020, Computacenter oversaw the largest commercial PV solar array installed in the UK. This provides over 25% of the energy consumed on-site and has created a proof of concept that we continue to extend to other locations. In 2022, our Integration Centers in Kerpen, Germany, and Livermore, USA, received solar installations with a combined 3216 panels for on-site energy production and consumption. Our total on-site generation capacity is now at 4.15MW.

UN Global Compact & UN Sustainable Development Goals

Computacenter has been a proud signatory of the UNGC since 2007. Three of the ten principles adopted by the agreement directly relate to the effects that businesses have on the environment. Our continued emissions reduction and greater environmental awareness is testament to our commitment in upholding these principles. Coupled with the UN SDG’s direct climate action, Computacenter’s sustainability agenda will ensure that we uphold our original pledge, provide an ongoing Communication on Progress (CoP), and continue working within our global communities to protect our planet and climate.

Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)

We are proud to take part in the CDP Climate Change questionnaire with a Rating A- in 2023 ,an increase from 2022. We additionally have A- supplier engagement rating.

Being Carbon Neutral (Scopes 1 and 2) in 2022 was a major milestone, followed by SBTi approval for all of our carbon emissions goals in 2023. We were one of the first companies in our industry to achieve these vital outcomes.
