CARING ABOUT THE FUTURE: WHY EVERY COMPANY SHOULD ADOPT AN ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

Software development companies, and the IT industry as a whole, deal with the cutting-edge technologies and computational powers to bring more comfort into the users’ lives and solve the most complicated problems. They deal with the future, as overblown as it may sound. But how many IT companies care about the future?

Even the greenest and most efficient industries leave a carbon footprint and can waste natural resources through inefficient processes and exploitation of the workforce. You might wonder - software development isn’t exactly coal mining and not even close to plastic production of Coca Cola, just how much damage to the environment and public health can a couple of developers and servers do?

Having a document that sets ambitious and necessary goals is the first step, and comprehending and implementing such a policy into everyday practices and rewiring the way business gets done – that’s where changes happen.

Prepare for the future

A software development company like Tentacle solutions needs the best hardware for their developers, office space and office supplies, managers need to take business trips, and all of it leaves a carbon footprint. Understanding the responsibility for the future and the need for the collective effort to save the environment Tentacle has adopted the environment and health policy that aims to minimize the environmental impact of the Tentacle’s activities.

Unlike similar documents in other corporation that end up bloated and drown in legalese, Tentacle’s policy is straightforward and transparent, as follows:

  • Minimize waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.

  • Source and promote a product range to minimize the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to Tentacle.
  • Use an accredited program to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities.

Having a document that sets ambitious and necessary goals is the first step, and comprehending and implementing such a policy into everyday practices and rewiring the way business gets done – that’s where changes happen.
