Environmental Impact

 
 

Journey To Net Zero

We care deeply about our impact on the world, and we follow sound environmental practices to help us lower our environmental footprint everywhere we operate.

As a company, our focus is on achieving net zero emissions from our organisation and value chain, accelerating our journey to a net positive impact.

Simply, we aim to do more ‘good’ than ‘harm’ for the environment as we all have the power to help tackle climate change through our behaviour at work and at home.

Measuring up

We take our environmental responsibilities seriously, reporting our Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) emissions each year using the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard pursuant to the UK Company Act 2006. We are continually looking for ways to further reduce our environmental footprint.

Endava recently signed the Science Based Targets commitment letter, grounding our strategy in climate science and joining Race to Zero – the UN-led global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses in taking immediate action to reduce emissions.

Managing Our Footprint

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.

We apply strict protocols to extend the lifecycle of our computer and IT equipment, with employees using their laptops for four years. Any IT equipment that is subject to waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) regulations is asset-tracked to ensure accountability and appropriate disposal.

Since we rely on public cloud services for data storage, we appreciate the commitment providers such as AWS Azure and Google are making to increased use of renewable energy in their operations.

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.

Endava Thank You Forest: Our Commitment To Plant 30,000 Trees

In December 2021 we kicked off a campaign, planting a tree for each e-Thank-You card our colleagues send internally to each other.

We also celebrated our 10,000 Endavans milestone by planting 10,000 trees – one for each member of our team, as a thank you for being part of our story and helping us reimagine the way technology impacts the lives of millions.

Our Endava Thank You Forest is growing and we have a commitment to plant at least 30,000 trees in this financial year.

We are delighted that our project has been recently awarded ‘CSR Program of the Year’ at the 2022 ANIS Romania gala.
 

Engaging our people in environmental activity

Our people regularly support regional initiatives that promote environmental awareness such as volunteer cleanups in Bulgaria, tree planting in Moldova and Ride2Work days in Romania. The pandemic significantly impacted in-person volunteering, so we focused on developing relevant partnerships.

We also help our teams incorporate more responsible habits. Our recently established Green Champions community nurture and lead environmental projects and initiatives, acting as ambassadors and encouraging Endavans to become more environmentally aware and engaged.
 

Driving Sustainability Through Digital Acceleration

As a next-generation technologies provider, we are mindful of the environmental impact of the software and technology infrastructures we design and deliver. We have the ability to drive sustainability through digital acceleration, and we are proud to help our clients build environmental-conscious solutions.
 

Thoughts from our Chief Digital Officer, Justin Marcucci

 

Digital technologies to increase Plastic and aluminium recycling

MeCycle is an innovative startup reinventing the way plastic and aluminium is recycled. The company pays customers to recycle based on unique codes on containers and specialised bins. We helped to build the recycling system app for the company’s pilot that is currently running in New York and online.
 

Transforming how the electricity industry interacts with usage data

One of our clients, a company operating a platform that underpins the UK energy market, worked with Endava to deliver a new digital product that aims to support the United Kingdom’s 2050 net zero target. We delivered a minimum viable product, providing a graphical presentation of generation and electricity network data, to enable electricity distribution organisations and their customers to best plan for power provision using green and renewable sources. Our client described the final product as transformative for how the electricity industry will view and use data.

 

Innovating To Reduce Energy Costs

STEM is a global leader in AI-driven energy storage systems. Its solutions accelerate renewable energy growth, help alleviate power grid intermittency issues and support corporate ESG goals.

Our data scientists and data engineers worked with STEM’s software team to build solutions that reduce energy costs by automatically switching between battery power and grid power according to peak and off-peak periods.
