Why we chose to become Climate Neutral

Protecting the planet as well as connecting the world is part of our DNA - and Konftel is proud to have secured Climate Neutral certification for the second year in a row, as we continue our pioneering industry pedigree.

It’s becoming ever more important for businesses and individuals to reduce and nullify their carbon footprints, to try and slow down climate change. 

Konftel was the first in our industry to offset all greenhouse gas emissions and we continue to cut impact at source too. It’s great to be part of a company with this forward-thinking philosophy! The time to act is now.

In an era of agile working with huge demand for conferencing and collaboration hardware, we take our responsibilities very seriously – so all our customers can ‘conference with a clear climate conscience’.

There are three reasons why we are placing an even greater emphasis on sustainability: our customers and partners expect it, the world needs it and we believe in its importance. 

Carbon offsetting supports certified projects

By investing substantially in worldwide carbon credits, forest conservation in Zimbabwe, water filtration in Cambodia and renewable energy in India are some of the many projects to benefit so far. New projects we’re supporting feature forest conservation in Cambodia, clean electricity in Indonesia, reducing landfill gas in USA and clean cookstoves in Mali. Learn more about the projects and our Climate Neutral status here.

For us, it’s not enough to simply provide innovative technology, equipment and support which helps people communicate more effectively. We also have to pay attention to our own carbon footprint in a way which encourages others to do the same. 

As well as the investment in our carbon credit programme, Konftel will continue to reduce future business travel by staff, once the pandemic is over. We have already replaced all plastic packaging for accessory cables with paper-based alternatives – and there’s more to come too.

This year’s reduction actions

We’ve developed a set of new pledges including all company owned cars becoming electric by the end of 2021. Konftel will also ‘climate-optimise’ packaging for all deliveries sent from our head office. This involves replacing plastic bubble wrap with recycled paper, minimising carton sizes, switching from plastic tape and using thermal labels that require less energy and generate less waste. In addition Konftel will explore options for improved energy efficiency at our biggest manufacturing sites.

When customers buy from us, they know they are buying from an organization which has no carbon footprint whatsoever; zero net emissions. This is a huge statement of intent. The technology we produce works in harmony with our climate neutral philosophy. More conference calling means less car and rail journeys, fewer flights, less-full offices, reduced gas and electricity consumption. The two strategies operate together.

Sustainability is a global conversation. We have a long way to go and this is only the start for us to become a fully sustainable company. But I’m sure you agree, it’s important to have a strong voice and take progressive steps forward where possible. Future generations expect nothing less.
