Achilles helped customers save 97 thousand tonnes of CO2 in 2022

Last updated: 2nd February 2023

Achilles, the global leader and partner of choice for ethical and sustainable supply chains, is demonstrating its commitment to a net zero future, both for the organisation and its customers, enabling more every year to achieve their own carbon reduction targets with a notable increase of 144% in Achilles’ Carbon Reduce Programme members in the past 2 years.

In the last 12 months, the Achilles Carbon Reduce Programme has also helped its members to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions by a significant 97,411 Tones CO2-e, which is the equivalent of 48,700 cars travelling 7,600 miles per annum. To offset this amount without reduction, Achilles customers would have had to plant over 4.8 million trees within one year – making the reduction a colossal feat for climate action.

To complement this achievement, Achilles has also won the international ‘Toitu Brighter Future Award 2022 for Climate Action’ for the second consecutive year.

The Toitu Brighter Future Awards are unique in that each category has data-based criteria by which their members are judged by. To qualify, the winners must have at least 2 years of comparable emissions. Performance is judged on greatest percentage change in absolute total emissions (all scopes, tCO2e) comparing the latest year certified as of June 2022 to the respective prior year, provided the finalists is also showing a reduction compared to base year.

This year, Toitu have selected Achilles Information Ltd as the winner of the Climate Action Award as a biggest reduction in the Medium Organisation category and having achieved a reduction on emissions (all scopes, tCO2e) compared to 2021.

Achilles continues to ‘walk the walk’ and demonstrate its commitment to a sustainable future through managing and reducing carbon emissions across its operational activities – and importantly – enabling its customers to do the same.

Austin Hansell, Carbon Product Manager at Toitu Envirocare commented, “We are recognising the organisations from the various Toitu Envirocare programmes making a significant impact in environmental sustainability. Achilles is actively working to reduce its impact and with businesses across the UK.

Hansell continued, “The Toitu Brighter Future Awards are judged on impact, not public voting, with the winners scientifically proven to be making a positive difference to the world around them. It’s simply progress. We are the currency by which businesses can forge change – and have the means to do so when certified under our programmes. No business will ever be perfect and we have to keep improving, so these awards help acknowledge the milestones.”

Achilles Chief Executive, Paul Stanley commented “Climate action is one of the most important challenges of our generation. Our people work with passion and commitment every day to help our customers address carbon reduction and meet their ESG goals. Showing leadership within our own business is vital for our credibility and for our planet”.
