Data and information management company Aiimi, has been certified a Carbon Neutral Plus organisation. This comes in recognition of the company’s efforts to reduce its long-term energy consumption, as well as its commitment to supporting global projects designed to help tackle climate change.
Awarded by Carbon Footprint, reaching carbon-neutral status was Aiimi’s primary environmental goal for 2020, and a core tenet of its Aiimi Goes Green initiative launched last year.
The process involved an independent assessment of the company’s carbon footprint, measuring factors like on-site energy use and employee travel. CEO Steve Salvin, said: “When we saw the results of the assessment, we were surprised at just how much carbon a business of our size produces. It was clear we could do better, so we wanted to do something to set a positive example to ourselves, to other businesses in the Milton Keynes area, and to tech companies nationally.”
To help offset this carbon output, Aiimi has chosen to invest in a borehole rehabilitation project in Uganda.
