UK-based Velocity Smart Technology has become what it claims is the world’s first carbon-neutral smart locker provider.
It has been working in partnership with decarbonisation consultancy Climate Partner to continuously measure its carbon emissions and implement a plan to cut them and offset all unavoidable emissions.
Velocity Smart Technology, which delivers smart locks and smart vending solutions, supports a project in Congo, which has been certified according to international standards, to offset its emissions.
Anthony Lamoureux, CEO of Velocity Smart Technology said, “We are really proud that Velocity Smart Technology is carbon-neutral – along with our products – as a company we have always challenged ourselves to do more for the world we live in and the future we leave for our children. Manufacturing and shipping our devices around the world shouldn’t have a detrimental effect on our planet and we are proud to be the first in the industry to make this step forward.
“Gaining our carbon-neutral certification is just the first step in the journey and in our commitment to decarbonisation. Getting on the scales was hard but there’s so much truth in the adage ‘you can’t control what you can’t measure’. It has been an eye-opening exercise!”
