Protecting our environment

Protecting our environment

environment-webAs a socially responsible organization with an engaging CSR profile, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact. Whilst our impact on the environment is low due to the nature of our operation, we have nevertheless pledged to limit our contribution to climate change by managing and counteracting our greenhouse gas emissions. 
Our key implementation activities include: 
  • Extending the measurement of carbon footprints to other SDL sites 
  • Strategic sourcing to reduce environmental impact
  • Optimising the energy efficiency of existing and new offices and equipment 
  • Implementing strategies to reduce waste 
In 2015, SDL complied with the Energy Savings and Opportunities Scheme (ESOS). This scheme, mandated in the UK under an EU Directive, required businesses to measure their total energy consumption and identify cost-effective savings opportunities for their UK operations to improve energy efficiency and profitability. SDL worked with Carbon Clear to conduct energy efficiency audits and act as its external Lead Assessor to comply with the requirements of the scheme.
