      SUSTAINABILITY

      Akita cares about the environment in all its forms and makes sustainability an integral part of company operations wherever possible.
      Akita is dedicated to improving its impact on the environment. That’s why we’re committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2025.

      We’re focusing on minimising the impact of our operations on the environment by means of a programme of continuous improvement. Our commitments include to:

      Reduce consumption

      In all areas of operation, we look to reuse rather than dispose whenever possible, and promote recycling and the use of recycled materials.

      Energy and water conservation

      Implement energy and water conservation schemes.

      Energy efficiency

      Design energy efficiency into new services and products, and manage energy wisely in all operations.

      Reduce harmful emissions

      We're working towards operating an entirely electric fleet of vehicles and reducing unnecessary travel wherever possible.

      Reused and recycle

      Market products and solutions that make efficient use of resources and which can be reused or recycled.

      Paperless office

      We aim for completely digital operations wherever possible, generating less waste as a result.

      Sustainability in practice

      Our sustainability commitments transfer through to how we conduct our business activities. As an example, our cloud infrastructure is housed within an award-winning sustainable data centre that uses half the power of an average data centre.

      We are committed to upcycling and recycling redundant IT equipment and are WEEE compliant. We also additionally provide recycling as a service to our customers so they too can dispose of hardware responsibly.

      Within our offices, we carefully manage energy consumption, actively choosing low energy technology solutions. Our energy supplier produces power from renewable sources. And use as little paper as possible in our operations, taking a digital-first approach.

      And as an acknowledgement to wider changes required, our in-house chef alternates vegetarian meals for lunches. This reduces meat consumption within the organisation and the knock-on carbon impact.

      Built Into Our Values

      Sustainability is far from a buzzword within our organisation. It’s one of our Managing Director’s key priorities and is shared as a value by staff throughout the company.

      As such, a sustainable approach to business is built into our DNA. And we’re continually looking to improve our environmental impact through new measures – big and small.
