Tech Initiatives for Net-Zero Carbon in the Philippines

Countries all over the world are laying out plans and setting various targets to help make the world a more sustainable place by 2050. Some of these plans and goals are lofty, but with the advancement of new technological developments, they now have the potential to become a reality.

Technology is fundamentally altering how people live and work, and in recent years, sustainability has been a key driver of technological progress. Today, as the world faces a slew of unprecedented challenges, technology has the potential to play a critical role in constructing a more sustainable future.

Technological advancements have the potential to play a significant role in sustainability efforts. Electric vehicles, renewable energy sources, and manufacturing processes that reduce waste and pollution continue to contribute to a better and more sustainable future for all. Locally, the Philippines has committed to achieving the United Nations (UN) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A technology firm, one of the world’s leaders in advancing sustainable impact, both globally and in the Philippines, recently announced its Climate Action Goals and the milestone publication of the annual Sustainable Impact Report. With its tech expertise, the company continuously drives initiatives toward a net-zero carbon and fully regenerative economy through World-First sustainable innovations and by leveraging talent and platform to do the best.

“Partners and end-users are looking for multiple benefits when buying a new device or product. Purchase decisions have become more than just a choice of the best features and pricing, but of personal security, human rights and environmental concerns,” said the Managing Director of the company.

Through its material sourcing, product design, service-based delivery, and recycling programmes, the company is currently transitioning to a more circular, low-carbon future. Its closed-loop recycling programme has upcycled 875 million cartridges, 114 million apparel hangers, and 4.69 billion post-consumer plastic bottles into new tech products over the course of several decades.

This programme has resulted in the company’s most recent environmentally friendly product, the world’s first notebook and mobile workstation made from ocean-bound plastics. Meanwhile, 82% of its original ink cartridges contain 4%-75% post-consumer recycled plastic, while 100% of its ink toners contain 1%-75% post-consumer or post-industrial recycled plastic.

Aside from the environment, the company has set goals for its employees and the communities with which it collaborates. Given that these are some of the most difficult issues of our time, the company has committed to addressing human rights for all and the growing digital divide.

The technology company has established a culture of inclusion and equity both inside and outside the workplace, believing that it can improve products, services, and the company. This has resulted in significant advancements in inclusion: women now make up 57% of the company’s global workforce, with 32% holding leadership positions.

Apart from the difficult issues of the day, the company recognises that the current landscape of remote work exposes businesses to a variety of data breaches, including malware and phishing. For many years, the company has been a reliable technology partner, providing complete security solutions for both its PC and print devices to protect important data as Filipinos work and learn from home.

Adapting to new ways of working and growing sustainably into the new normal has become a security decision that entails upgrading productivity tools with crucial security solutions. As the world enters a new era of innovation, the company is constantly reinventing solutions to meet the growing demand for active cyber defence, smarter infrastructure, and more personalised experiences. All of this as it aspires to be the most sustainable and just IT company by 2030.

Companies across industries will continue to prioritise environmental issues and design, test, and manufacture technologies to support them in the coming years. As a result, first-to-market hardware and software solutions that conserve natural resources, reduce carbon emissions, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels will emerge. With this, people can lay the groundwork for a more sustainable future by forming alliances with industry leaders and investing in technologies that power electric vehicles, 5G-enabled IoT, solar energy, and other initiatives.
