We are focused on improving resource efficiency, reducing absolute GHG emissions, as well as investing in high quality projects and partnerships for carbon removal.
We began introducing the ISO 14001
International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) at all our locations in 2021. This framework will help us enhance our environmental performance, fulfil and exceed compliance obligations and achieve environmental objectives by managing environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner. In FY 22 over 52% of Endavans worked in locations covered by the company's EMS. Currently, seven out of eight Endava delivery centres with an EMS in place have received ISO certification, with the number set to increase during FY 23.
Climate neutrality forms part of our IT partner criteria. In line with national and international agreements to reach climate neutrality, we expect that our partners commit to environmental impact schemes such as the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact, using renewable energy to power data centres and recycling redundant equipment responsibly. We also integrate environmental considerations into planning for data centre needs. Currently we do not own any data centres; we primarily use public cloud infrastructure and, where we cannot use public cloud, we rent space in third party data centres. We have contracts with two data centres both listing 100% renewable energy for EMEA.
We have also begun the process of engaging with our partners, suppliers and local communities to identify emission reduction opportunities and pathways to preventing pollution and to embed circular economy in our operations, as well as the partnerships that will be required to support them.
