TD SYNNEX moves to green energy across all UK locations

TD SYNNEX has announced that it has succeeded in getting all four of its UK locations running on electricity from a renewable source before the end of 2023, which means that 100 per cent of the electricity consumed by the business now comes from renewable sources.

The achievement further reduces TD SYNNEX’s UK carbon footprint and its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. It came after the management company for TD SYNNEX’s Bracknell offices confirmed that it has now switched to a green energy tariff from National Grid for The Capitol Building at Oldbury.

Kevin Wragg, Director, Environment and Quality Compliance, TD SYNNEX said, “We had set a target to get all our UK operations onto renewable electricity by the end of 2023 and we’re pleased to have achieved that goal. It’s vitally important that our industry continues to make progress in reducing its carbon impact and it is worth celebrating as every small step takes us a little bit closer to net zero.”

TD SYNNEX UK was already getting 90 per cent of its power from renewable sources, with its warehouse facility at Magna Park, Lutterworth, and the office locations in Basingstoke and Warrington all using green energy.

Efficiency gains, especially at its main Basingstoke offices, have also seen TD SYNNEX reduce its energy consumption quite significantly and the UK operation is on target to achieve its goal of achieving a 20 per cent reduction this year. In Q1 2024, it expects to have electric vehicle charging points at all four UK locations. These will be free at the point of delivery to co-workers. There are already EV points available at the Basingstoke location.

TD SYNNEX has a defined plan to reduce its carbon impact in the UK. It is working with its courier partners to reduce the carbon output of deliveries and is also supporting partners in their efforts to be more sustainable. It offers a net zero carbon (NZC) consultancy service to partners and makes its experts available to speak at partner events. It has partnered with Treedom and Verra (offsetting), Egencia (travel), and Climate Partners (carbon reduction).

In the UK, TD SYNNEX has signed up to Techies Go Green and for the Microsoft Partner Pledge. Across Europe it has achieved ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality) and ISO 14001: 2015 (Environmental Management System) and has been accredited for Cisco Environmental Sustainability Specialization.

Globally, TD SYNNEX has signed the SBTi (Science Based Target initiative) Business Ambition Pledge, which encourages ambitious climate action and emissions reduction targets. It continues to incorporate circular economy principles into its lifecycle management strategy and to minimise waste through the repair, refurbishment, and recycling of IT equipment TD SYNNEX also reports its environmental sustainability performance through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
