Reducing our and our customers' environmental impact
DNA considers it important to recognise the environmental impacts and risks of its business, and to operate according to the principles of sustainable development. For us, responsibility for environmental performance translates into improving energy efficiency, reducing our carbon footprint in production, logistics, facilities and employee travel, as well as using renewable energy.
We wish to set an example for our customers in reducing the carbon footprint. Through our Genuine Method of Working, DNA will be able to reduce emissions from work-related travel by some 40 per cent annually when employees work remotely at home, for example. We help our customers to reduce their environmental impact by providing comprehensive Internet and mobile phone services, which minimise the need for work-related travel.
In our direct electricity procurement, we use electricity produced solely from renewable sources. Green electricity is estimated to reduce the greenhouse emissions from DNA's own energy consumption by 40 per cent, which means about 13,000 tonnes less greenhouse gases per year. This amount equals some 2,000 trips around the world in a car.
We report on our energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in our annual Corporate Responsibility Report.
