Amido is dedicated to our mission to become a sustainably carbon neutral company by 2025
We will be running a number of initiatives to reduce and offset our carbon footprint and we will measure the success of these initiatives with software products that we design and build internally. We will also make these tools available to other organisations so they are able to do the same.
Our 2020 goals
Reducing the amount of landfill we generate as an organisation
Working to eliminate single-use plastic from our office, making sure that everyday items such as milk carts and disposable cups/plates are made from recyclable and compostable material.
Support charities and initiatives that are focused on long term sustainability
Such as reducing deforestation and emissions from cookstoves in developing countries, purchasing renewable energy from wind or solar farms, planting trees, and supporting recycling and reuse projects
Conscious company events
Decrease the environmental impact of company events by ordering from ethical and local suppliers
Bi-annual carbon emissions survey
Measure our emissions using technology such as smart meters in order to track progress against our vision and set regular milestones
Increase environmental awareness in the business
inform employees of the actions that increase and decrease greenhouse gas usage, and carbon footprint
Using ethical suppliers with a low carbon footprint
Ensuring that all areas of the business use local suppliers where possible
