Our sustainability is rooted in our approach to shared prosperity within Bytes, which aims to deliver positive impact for customers, colleagues and communities across themes most relevant to our stakeholders and our purpose.
As one of our key value drivers, environmental criteria, includes the energy our operation takes in and the waste it discharges, the resources it needs, and the consequences for living beings as a result. Not least, it encompasses carbon emissions and climate change. As every other company, we use energy and resources and as a results affects, and is affected by, the environment.
Throughout 2023, we have been working with an external consultancy to focus on expanding our knowledge and reporting in Scope 3, which now covers water and paper usage, waste, business travel, employee commuting and our Upstream transport and distribution.
Our Net Zero goal is aligned with Science Based Targets, with our core short term focus being on reducing emissions from transport, whether that be business, commuting or from our suppliers, to work towards our Net Zero target of 2040 and an interim target of 50% reduction in these areas by 2030.Carbon Reporting 2022-2023
