    A message from our Managing Director, Jonathan Kini

    "Climate change is the defining issue of our age. It’s something that impacts every one of us and the time to act on it is now. So that’s why we’ve launched a new company-wide environmental policy to guide us as we look to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our business over the coming years."

    Read our policy


We have reduced our carbon footprint in our offices and data centres by over 80% in the last five years. However, as the urgent need for action becomes greater, we need to do more. Read on to see how we will achieve our vision.
