Teneo Announces Carbon Neutral Certification

June 16, 2022

As part of its commitment to sustainability, Teneo, the IT services company, has today announced that it can certify its carbon neutrality. Working in partnership with Carbon Footprint, the company will offset 312 tons of CO2e (Carbon Dioxide Equivalent) by investing in a solar energy project in India.

Carbon Footprint is an award-winning Carbon consultancy and one of the founding members of the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) for Carbon Offsetting. It enables businesses to balance emissions by financially supporting high-quality global carbon offsetting projects that provide solutions to climate change.

James Hall, Teneo’s Operations Director, commented: “Teneo is committed to supporting decarbonization globally. We share Carbon Footprint’s goal to track and reduce carbon emissions ‘at source’ as much as possible and to compensate for unavoidable emissions.

“We are delighted to share that Teneo certifies its carbon neutrality by calculating the amount of carbon it puts into the atmosphere through established criteria and purchasing carbon credits with Carbon Footprint to offset our total emissions”.

Teneo will support the ‘Energising India Using Solar Energy’ project, which is a step towards supporting the implementation and installation of five grid-connected renewable solar energy power plants in India.

The main goal of the activity is to implement renewable energy projects in the country, and the significant importance of revenues from the sale of carbon credits to achieve this goal forms the basis of the implementation of this project. The total capacity of the project activity is 480 MW, and the power produced displaces an equivalent amount of power from the activity and is expected to reduce emissions by around 850,000 tonnes of CO2e each year.

Teneo’s partnership with Carbon Footprint builds upon its commitment to support projects in developing countries. This includes extensive charitable work helping build schools in Africa in partnership with ActionAid and Seed Madagascar.

James concludes: “In partnering with Teneo, our customers, in turn, help to support these initiatives – we know that the bigger we are, the more we can give back. It’s a goal we all share as a team and something we are excited to build on in 2022.”
