In March 2021, SecuriGroup was amongst the first companies in the UK to reach Carbon Net-Zero, and became one of the world's first 100 signatories alongside global corporations Amazon, Coca-Cola and Microsoft to The Climate Pledge.
SecuriGroup's progress towards Net-Zero included establishing its very own forest with the planting of a first phase of 2,000 trees in Perthshire, Scotland, and its investment in UNFCCC carbon credits linked directly to the United Nations' Sustainability Goals.
To mark the final days of the UN Climate Conference, the SecuriGroup Team responsible for sustainability attended the COP26 conference to receive its PAS 2060 accreditation, the internationally recognised standard for Carbon Neutrality.
Speaking after the presentation, Compliance Manager, Kieran Foy said "SecuriGroup is delighted to have participated in the UKAS pilot programme that externally verifies our Carbon Net Zero status. To receive this accolade towards the conclusion of COP26 makes it even more special."
The UN Climate Conference, COP26, has brought together hundreds of world leaders since the 31st October to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, aiming to work collaboratively to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, and bringing forward national plans setting out how emissions would be reduced.
SecuriGroup is proud to play its part in this momentous global event in the city of Glasgow, and will continue to promote sustainable alternatives in all that we do.
