We’ve provided more detail on each of the ESG areas below and you can read further detail in this report on our ESG work by Sustainable Advantage. 


We hold ISO14001 and are working to reduce our environmental impact. Our main impact on the environment is through using electricity in our data centres and offices. We moved to 100% renewable electricity in June 2022 and already have a good Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) score in our data centres, we are working to define and implement projects that will improve the efficiency of those data centres and publish an annual Carbon Reduction Plan. We are measuring the wider emissions that our activities create and are working with our customers to reduce their emissions. 

We produce relatively little waste and are working with partners to recycle more. 


Our Head Office is in Newark which is one of the worst local authorities in the country for social mobility. By providing jobs and training in digital skills there, we have a positive impact on society. We also create apprenticeships and have a learning and development plan that improves the skills of our staff. We measure staff engagement through weekly quick surveys and have a Colleague Forum that provide ways for staff to share ideas with our Exec. We provide time for staff to volunteer and choose and support a charity each year. 


We hold several international standards as well as Cyber Essentials, have published a number of policies to ensure that we conduct our business with care and professionalism and provide our services on procurement frameworks. We are increasingly asking our suppliers to evidence due care in the sourcing and provision of goods and services to us.
