Environmental Values

Nine23 are committed to environmental sustainability and achieving Net Zero emissions.

As a company, we recognise the urgent need to address climate change and reduce our environmental impact therefore, we have made a firm commitment to achieve 90% net zero emissions by 2050 and compensate for any emissions we cannot remove.

To achieve our net zero commitment, we are implementing a range of sustainability initiatives across our operations:

  • Renewable Energy: We are working with our facilities provider towards using renewable energy sources such as solar or wind power to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels
  • Supply Chain Optimisation: We are working closely with our suppliers to ensure that they also adhere to sustainable practices, thereby reducing the overall carbon impact of our supply chain
  • Energy Efficiency: We are investing in energy-efficient technologies and practices to minimise energy consumption and carbon footprint
  • On our way to Net Zero: Nine23 have been awarded the ‘On the road to Net Zero’ certification mark
  • Ambitious GHG reduction targets: We are taking  action to restrict global warming to less than 1.5 degrees. We are committed to a 30% reduction of our scope 3 emissions within 5 years and a 90% reduction across all of our emissions, by 2050
  • Compensate for residual emissions: Once we reach the long-term reduction target, we will address unavoidable emissions through carbon compensation programs. These may include purchasing voluntary carbon credits or investing in early-stage offsetting projects.
  • Agree to publish GHG data: To demonstrate our commitment to transparency and advocacy, we will publish each year the validated annual footprint, targets, action taken and progress towards reaching net zero. See our 2022 total emissions. 2023 is pending.

Transparency and Accountability

We understand the importance of transparency and accountability in our journey towards net zero. Therefore, we are committed to regularly communicating our progress, challenges, and achievements in reducing emissions. We believe that by being transparent about our efforts, we can inspire others and contribute to a collective movement towards a more sustainable future.

Engaging Our Stakeholders

We value the input and collaboration of our customers, employees, and other stakeholders in this journey towards net zero. We encourage you to share your thoughts, ideas, and feedback on how we can further improve our sustainability initiatives.

Nine23 are proud to be working in partnership with a number of global hi-tech companies and as part of the Trust X Alliance Global Goals Initiative, to address relevant areas of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Out of the 17 goals, 4 have been chosen with the intent that we can affect these areas the most. They are: Good Health and Well-Being (3), Gender Equality (5), Decent Work and Economic Growth (8), and Climate Action (13). Individually, Nine23 have our own targets, and are continually formulating improvements to our plan, to guarantee these goals are met.

The benefits that can be driven through social value can be a vital component in advancing equality, creating training and better employment opportunities.

The SME Climate Hub for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) provides a one-stop-shop to make a climate commitment and access best-in-class tools and resources. They have partnered with Oxford University to support small businesses in reducing their carbon emissions and to provide climate solutions to contribute to climate action in society.

Nine23 has pledged their commitment to the SME Climate Hub.
