Scimcon goes carbon neutral

Scimcon, leader in scientific informatics for the lab, is proud to announce certification as a carbon neutral business.

Scimcon is proud to announce that it has been certified by Carbon Neutral Britain as a carbon neutral business in 2021. We were originally founded in 2000, and in the 20 years since have committed to our global strategy and decided that the next step was to commit to our sustainable future as a business. As such, Scimcon committed to becoming carbon neutral and received the certification in 2021 from Carbon Neutral Britain (www.carbonneutralbritain.org)

Commitment to sustainability

Geoff Parker, co-founder at Scimcon explains:

“Scimcon like many businesses operates more globally than locally. Our customer base consists of diverse range of lab centric organisations including large pharma and biopharma companies, wherever they are located, and our service provision often is in their laboratories on site. We have therefore become increasingly conscious of our sustainable future and our carbon footprint, and during 2020 and 2021, we decided to review our carbon footprint and commit to how the business operates in future. Once we engaged with Carbon Neutral Britain, the certification process became a priority.”

Spotlight on procurement compliance  

Many global procurement companies are focused on the sustainable supply chain, so the ability of Scimcon to demonstrate its carbon neutral status is an important business decision for the future. Carbon Neutral Britain estimates that companies who adopt a carbon neutral footprint lead their industries in terms of climate impact. In 2016, 92% of Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies followed the GHG Protocol or ISO 14064 Standard for their Carbon Emissions Calculation. The certification is therefore a demonstrable achievement for the customers of Scimcon to audit it as part of their sustainable supply chain, and is part of Scimcon’s investment in the future of the business, its customers and the environment.

What being a carbon neutral business means

Scimcon achieved its carbon neutral certification by the three steps to carbon neutrality identified by Carbon Neutral Britain:

  1. Calculate carbon footprint
  2. Offset carbon emissions
  3. After offsetting, Scimcon then received certification.

Geoff explains:

“Our role in our customers’ supply chain is important: Scimcon is part of the workflow that enables our customers to operate seamlessly with high-performing laboratory informatics strategies. We therefore are aware of the importance of our role in investing in the future supply chain for those companies. We are accustomed to supporting their audits and to being audited ourselves, and the Carbon Neutral certification is a vital part of that process. We are proud that Scimcon has become a carbon neutral business in 2021.
