We are honored to have been highly commended at the recent Comms National Awards for our sustainability efforts over the past year. While we are proud of the initiatives we have implemented so far, we know this is just the beginning of our journey towards more eco-friendly operations.
The Comms National Awards is one of the UK ICT Channel's top awards event, where the UK resellers and the suppliers who support them come together an celebrate their achievements.
Some of our key achievements include developing proprietary tooling to detect quieter usage periods and auto scale down computing capacity. This has reduced our energy consumption by up to 60% during weekends and bank holidays. We've also made strides towards sustainability at events by opting for sustainable alternatives for giveaways such as reusable RPET bottles. RPET bottle production requires 70% less energy than virgin plastic production and based on the 100 bottles we ordered for this year; we kept approximately 690 plastic water bottles out of landfills.
We've also introduced NFC business cards to minimise paper waste. While these may seem minor, each initiative piles up to make a collective impact.
At Layer Systems, we believe sustainability and business success go hand in hand. We strive to set an example in our industry by taking accountability for our global impact. While we're proud of the progress made, we know there is always more that can be done. Our team is motivated to continue innovating new ways to reduce our environmental footprint.
