Unveiling the Journey to a Greener Tomorrow: Understanding and Reducing Emissions

At Genexis, our commitment to sustainability is a promise we extend to our valued customers, our employees, and industry partners. To make a meaningful impact, we believe it’s essential to provide you with the knowledge to join us in this journey.

Understanding Scope 1, 2, andΒ 3 Emissions

  • Scope 1: Emissions stemming from sources that Genexis owns and controls. They include direct emissions from both the heating of our on-site offices and from our owned (non-electric) vehicles. By choosing cleaner energy sources, we can minimize these emissions.
  • Understanding Scope 1 2 3 Emissions

  • Scope 2: Indirect emissions originating from the generation of purchased electricity consumed in our facilities fall under this category. Our goal is to lower these emissions by opting for more environmentally friendly energy sources.
  • Scope 3: Indirect emissions that are out of our full control and are mostly associated with the distribution, use, and end-of-life treatment of our products. By choosing for resource & energy efficiency of our broadband equipment, we can together reduce these emissions.

Reducing Scope 1 Emissions

In our ongoing journey towards sustainability, we understand that minimizing Scope 1 emissions is crucial not only for us but also for you, our customers, employees, and industry partners. Scope 1 emissions are those directly under our control, and here’s how we can eliminate them:
πŸ”Ή Clean Energy: We’re shifting to cleaner energy resources in our operations, eliminating fossil fuels and moving to zero direct emissions in our offices and owned vehicles. This transition is about reducing our operational carbon footprint as a company.
πŸ”Ή Efficient Operations: We invest in energy-efficient facilities and transportation to minimize these direct emissions and used resources. By doing so, we’re not just reducing our impact but also providing you with more sustainable services.

Mitigating Scope 2 Emissions

Scope 2 emissions are those related to the electricity procurement in our offices. By making conscious choices in our operations, we’re working to reduce these emissions:

πŸ’‘ Renewable Energy: We’re transitioning to renewable energy resources to power our operations. We are even approaching 100% renewable electricity procurement soon! By also minimizing these ‘green’ resources we not only reduce our indirect emissions but also demonstrate our commitment to a cleaner planet.

By partnering with Genexis, you are also contributing to this shift towards renewable energy and a smarter, more sustainable broadband industry.

Tackling Scope 3 Emissions

Scope 3 emissions are primarily influenced by product design, its use, and distribution throughout the value chain. As our customer, employee, or industry partner, here’s how your choice to work with Genexis can make a difference:

🌍 Eco-Friendly Products: We are committed to developing energy-efficient and eco-friendly broadband solutions. By choosing our products, you are reducing your own environmental impact and contributing to lower Scope 3 emissions. Your decision to innovate for a sustainable, connected future is a powerful one.
πŸš— Low-Emission Transportation: Beyond streamlining our product transportation and embracing efficient packaging, we’re also encouraging our employees to commute using low-emission vehicles. It’s a small yet impactful change that collectively adds up to a greener tomorrow.

We invite you to join us on this journey toward a more sustainable future, a net-zero society. Together, we can reduce emissions across all scopes and work towards a cleaner, greener, and more responsible telecoms and broadband industry. Your commitment and support are invaluable as we shape a more sustainable world.
