Computacenter has announced its new net zero target, which includes Scope 3 emissions, is 2040, ten years earlier than its previous goal. The firm is also aiming to be carbon neutral for Scope 1 and 2 emissions in 2022, five years ahead of its previous target.

The reseller’s 2021 sustainability report shows it reduced Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 74% between 2019 and 2021, despite continuing to expand and grow the business during that period. Initiatives and investments which contribute to achieving the carbon neutral milestone in 2022 include: investments in new and existing facilities to reduce electricity consumption; investment in solar generation at Hatfield (1.8m kWh generated in 2021, saving approx. 400,000 kg of annual carbon emissions) and Kerpen (1.5m kWh generation expected in 2022); and the move to electricity contracts from green energy suppliers.

In 2021, 73% of Computacenter’s electricity usage came from renewable sources.
