Capital – the largest independent Office Equipment and Document Solutions provider in Scotland – has committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and signed the Edinburgh Climate Compact.
We have been leading the way in our commitment to minimising our impact on the environment – having had the BS ISO 14001 accreditation since 2005. We have adopted an enhanced sustainability strategy, underpinned by a ‘route map’ focused on reducing our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions under the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Reporting Standard.
We have also joined a number of leading private and public sector organisations in signing up to a series of decarbonisation commitments as part of the Edinburgh Climate Compact to support the city’s ambition to reach net zero by 2030. Other signatories include Scottish Parliament, Shepherd & Wedderburn, NHS Lothian, Edinburgh Airport, Robertson Group, The City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh College, The University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society.
Capital are the first Office Equipment and Document Solutions supplier to have committed to the Edinburgh Climate Compact.
We have appointed “champions” to lead the way towards becoming “net zero” and will be integrating sustainability considerations into all of our business decisions. We will report our greenhouse gas emissions and progress against our net zero target annually using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Reporting Standard methodology.
Andrew Aikman, Managing Director said:
“Having already made significant inroads in our journey to net zero, we are totally committed to further reducing our carbon footprint and by working with our colleagues, clients and suppliers, to being the most sustainable business we possibly can be. The climate is changing and we must change faster – we are therefore committed to being the most sustainable business we can be”.
