Digital solutions firm UST achieves carbon-neutral certification

Digital transformation solutions company UST has announced it is now a certified carbon-neutral business and is targeting net zero emissions by 2040.

It has achieved the carbon-neutral company certification in accordance with The Carbon Neutral Protocol, the global framework for carbon neutrality.

The accreditation underscores UST's pledge to climate change, aligned with its commitment to act responsibly and minimise the impact of its activities on the environment.

The company previously joined the Amazon-led Climate Pledge and as a signatory, it is taking science-based actions to tackle climate climate by innovating in supply chain efficiency, sustainable transportation, circular economy and clean energy solutions.

One of its upcoming initiatives include plans to install a 1.2MW on-grid solar power system at its Trivandrum campus in India, which will reduce UST's dependency on traditional power sources onsite by 35%.

It also intends to switch to renewable energy for 25% of its electricity needs by 2025 and 50% by 2030 and has committed to work with suppliers that use zero or low-emission vehicles.

Krishna Sudheendra, Chief Executive Officer, UST said: “We are extremely honoured to be recognised as a certified carbon-neutral company as we further our commitment to decrease UST's carbon footprint and support additional carbon reduction projects.

“I am tremendously proud of our entire team's passionate efforts to make a positive impact and look forward to seeing these programmes continue to grow and build a better world.”
