The London-based guarding company Magenta Security reports the verification of its carbon neutral status for the period from May 25, 2022 to May 24, 2023. The company has maintained its minimising of its environmental impact, achieving a market-based carbon footprint of 0.00 tCO2e during this assessment period.
Magenta has exceeded its original goal of becoming Carbon Zero+ by 2025, without the need for offsetting, the firm adds. Among its environmentally responsible practices: by using a solar panel array at their Walbrook Business Centre head offices, Magenta generates on-site electricity, reducing its reliance on traditional energy sources. The firm has made a transition to a 100 per cent renewable electricity tariff from Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).
The company’s vehicle fleet has also undergone change. The fleet now consists of battery-powered Peugeot 2008 electric vehicles, charged from the solar panels on-site. This has resulted in substantial emissions reduction.
Abbey Petkar, Managing Director of Magenta Security, pictured, says: “Our team’s consistent hard work and dedication to sustainability have propelled us to achieve these remarkable results. We are not only meeting but exceeding our carbon neutrality goals, showcasing our commitment to a greener future. Our focus on environmental responsibility, from solar power adoption to our electric vehicle fleet, has positioned us as industry leaders in sustainability.”
Magenta’s approach extends beyond its operations. Through a school age programme that educates children about tree planting benefits, an additional five tonnes of carbon are offset annually. Magenta adds that it remains committed to exploring new ways to minimise its environmental footprint, contributing to a more sustainable and ecologically balanced future.
