tCO2e: 6,112 (vs 6,729)
Despite having the highest carbon intensity of all 50 firms we looked at in our Channel Net Zero report (not surprisingly considering it operates datacentres in Derby, Leeds and Northampton), Node4 claimed in its inaugural SECR commentary that "energy efficiency and environmental sustainability are a part of everything we do".
The private equity-backed outfit harbours a long-term goal of using 100 per cent clean and renewable energy across its global platform.
Node4's scope 1 and 2 emissions fell from 6,729 tonnes to 6,112 tonnes in its year to 31 March 2021. Actions taken include rolling out HVAC Aircon and more efficient equipment, as well as the introduction of electric and hybrid cars into its fleet.
Wavenet is looking to transition all company vehicles to electric or hybrid over the next five years, the Birmingham-based unified comms provider said in its inaugural SECR report.
It pegged its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions - the latter of which relate to business travel in rental or employee-owned cars - at 88.6 tonnes in its year to 30 April 2021, and now has its sights set on installing LED lighting and improved insulation at its offices.
tCO2e: 325 (vs 362)
This Surrey-based audiovisual provider claimed it has a "long-standing commitment to tackling climate change" as it pegged its combined fiscal 2021 scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions at 325 tonnes (down 11.4 per cent year on year).
Its strategy to "significantly" reduce its carbon footprint encompasses encouraging employees to purchase renewable technology such as hybrid vehicles, purchasing energy-efficient equipment for its offices, replacing HVAC systems and adopting behavioural change.
