Our Environmental Efforts
Corsearch is proud to be contributing to the reduction of the global environmental footprint by introducing initiatives that support the efficient use of natural resources by setting targets to reduce our overall energy usage. We are focused on our environmental impact and investing in sustainable business practices. In line with the Paris Agreement, we aim to adopt science based targets by 2024 and establish a plan to achieve net zero.
As a first step, we have partners, Co2Logic to help assess our carbon footprint and Ecovadis to set our action plan and to achieve goals. We measure, track and report on carbon reduction through partners Ecovadis and through our internal OneTrust ESG platform. A number one goal is tying environmental commitments into our day to day life at Corsearch and enabling employees to be part of this journey and proud of the collective efforts and company global impact. As a new signatory to the UN Global Compact, we will be reporting progress through an annual Communication of Progress (COP) and through our investors annual reporting requirements.
To further our environmental goals, we make energy and waste management training and procedures part of the operational model and values at Corsearch. Acting in compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations globally, we provide our employees with a safe work place and environment.
