Uncover Natilik's sustainability efforts and find out how you can get started.
When it comes to sustainability, talking a good game has never been enough. Showing genuine commitment that earns the trust of employees, suppliers, and customers alike needs more than website soundbites.
Businesses are now expected to demonstrate and substantiate the changes they’re making to become more sustainable. In the words of our own CEO, demonstrating a real commitment to sustainability is becoming non-negotiable.2
The manufacturing and supply of IT goods is one of the biggest contributors to the environmental footprint of technology. There’s no escaping the fact that extracting the raw materials needed to produce new hardware has a devastating environmental impact. Many of the vendors Natilik partners with, such as Cisco and Pure Storage, work with recycled or refurbished materials or build sustainability into their supply chain to reduce the impact of producing new technology. In addition, Cisco has its takeback and reuse program to help offer businesses a more environmentally conscious method of disposal.

Natilik’s sustainability journey
At Natilik, we’re proud of our conservation commitment. Our dedication to sustainability runs through everything we do and was a key driver on our journey to being B Corp certified. As our business expands, so does its impact on the environment, so we’re committed to conducting ourselves in a sustainable manner.
That does not just apply to the IT we use but to all facets of our business, which is why our Sustainability team have been hard at work lessening the environmental impact of all our day-to-day operations, supporting the company by measuring and reducing our Corporate Carbon Footprint, setting ambitious climate commitments to become Net Zero and holding us accountable through genuine, science-based targets. You can find out more about these initiatives below.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
We measure our Corporate Carbon Footprint with Climate Partner, and what we can’t reduce from our scope 1 and 2 emissions, we offset through partners such as Ecologi. In 2022 Natilik became a carbon-neutral business, offsetting its scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions globally.
Net Zero Goals
We have recently joined the climate action group Tech Zero and are setting our commitments. Once set, we will focus on establishing rigorous measurement, board accountability, and transparency on our journey to Net Zero.
Our commitments are genuine, science-based targets and as such Natilik reports annually on our progress, with support from Tech Zero. All these initiatives support our current B Corps accreditation and will keep Natilik’s commitment to making the world a better place through measurable targets.
Are you embarking on your own IT sustainability journey? We can help.
No matter how big your business is, or what industry you serve, making changes to your business’s approach to IT will help you adopt a more sustainability-conscious approach. But weaving sustainability into the fabric of your IT strategy can’t be achieved with a one-size-fits-all model. You must identify opportunities within your strategy and ensure that your positive actions become deep-rooted foundations that create long-term business benefits.
To plot the best path forward, we offer Sustainability Discovery Sessions, which assess your environment and help find ways you can minimise your environmental impact. Click here to find out more.
