CTGlobal Environmental Policy
As an IT consultancy, software vendor and manufacturer, the majority of CTGlobal’s products and processes do not include physical items or processes. As a result, CTGlobal has a low global environmental footprint.
When our operations include physical items, such as clients and servers, we only purchase from reputable manufacturers who employ industry standard environmental policies and are fully compliant with applicable domestic and international requirements.
CTGlobal’s primary environmental impacts relate to:
• the company’s own energy consumption
• the reduction of our customers IT-related environmental footprint
• the disposition of hardware products at the end of their useful life;
• business travel;
• the consumption of natural resources through its own activities and its procurement processes.
CTGlobal is committed to environmental management through:
• Helping our customers use information technology to meet environmental challenges, e.g. by: identifying potential methods for reducing CO2 emissions from devices; making environmentally sound procurement decisions; moving storage from physical servers to cloud services;
• Continuously moving our own and customers’ servers from resource demanding data centers to greener, cloud-based services to reduce power consumption;
• Managing the consumption of resources used by CTGlobal in its day-to-day operations, including recycling of waste paper, separation of recyclable waste, use of recycled materials and paper.
• Regularly reviewing our carbon footprint in each location worldwide, by working with local landlords to ensure that the buildings we occupy have automatic light and cooling deactivation and/or modern energy efficient consumables as part of energy saving initiatives, wherever possible;
• Identifying opportunities to divert, minimize, reuse and recycle our waste stream;
• Incorporating environmental considerations into procurement processes;
• Striving to reduce business travel and promote alternatives wherever practicable, by using digital tools such as video calling for company meetings between offices.
• Committing to comply with applicable environmental laws and regulations.
