Datagraphic, a UK provider of secure outbound and inbound communications, has announced that its near term, long term and net zero carbon reduction targets approved and validated by the SBTi, recognising its commitment to science based sustainability.

The SBTi is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).


It shows organisations how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to prevent the worst effects of climate change. Science based targets are deemed necessary to meet the Paris Agreement's goals, which aim to limit global warming to well below 2°C and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C.

Peter Wells, head of sustainability and commercial manager, commented: ‘Datagraphic is conscious of minimising its impact on the climate and therefore committed to decarbonising UK operations. As the only company in our sector with near term, long term and net zero targets to be approved and validated by the SBTi, we are extremely proud to be recognised for our science based approach to sustainability.’


Datagraphic has committed to achieving net zero emissions from its entire operations by 2050. This commitment includes a further objective to achieve net zero carbon emissions for its Scopes 1 and 2 by 2030.


Using the GHG Protocol and working with specialist energy engineers Pro Enviro, the company has measured and recorded carbon emissions from a baseline year of 2019. Together, Datagraphic and Pro Enviro, have created a robust science based decarbonisation plan with targets now validated by SBTi.


By tracking CO2e against the baseline year of 2019, the company has already reduced carbon emissions by 46%. This has been achieved with significant capital investment in renewable energy generation and energy engineering.

Datagraphic recognises that the journey towards a decarbonised economy cannot be made alone.


Peter added, ‘Datagraphic is delighted to lead the way for SMEs in delivering a quantifiable sustainable strategy. That said, we recognise that we can’t make this journey alone. By working with our clients, supply chain, community and partners on initiatives to improve sustainability, we know we can make a difference together.’
