Ashleigh: For a business like Speckle, it's interesting because we don't manufacture physical goods, so the opportunities to reduce our environmental impact feel more limited. However, biodiversity action and climate action are fundamentally important. For us, it was a no-brainer to use a service like Trace as it gives us a really simple way to track and measure our carbon footprint and then the opportunity to compensate and offset. We do use energy and it's incredibly challenging, particularly when working remotely to reduce. We've got a policy to use green energy wherever we can. But going beyond that, being able to then compensate is important. My goal for the next financial year is to work on carbon reduction.
Using our Trace carbon footprint measurement, and the in-app reduction tools, we could easily identify the biggest opportunities for us in the reduction space. The way we approached it was to look at our energy suppliers and to put forward a policy to the team that stipulated where there’s certain fees associated with changing, we're happy to cover those costs. We’ve also had more conversations and increased our awareness, making changes where we can and then offsetting where we can't.
