“Companies track productivity, they can measure sustainability too''

Cwmbran-based telecoms company RPS Telecom have become a member of Treepoints, a certified Social Enterprise who help businesses understand their emissions, support climate projects and track their impacts. 

 Becoming a greener business boasts the benefits of happier employees, offsetting business travel, supporting local communities and rewarding your team, according to Treepoints. 

 Natalie Strange, General Manager of RPS Telecom said: “With climate change an ever-increasing threat, there has been a push for businesses to take action, and we are doing just that. We will be offsetting a total of 42 tonnes of carbon each year, planting 840 trees and recycling 840 bottles. 

 “For many businesses, the move to remote working has led to a decline in their environmental impact. 95% of RPS Telecom’s customers are supported remotely, up 15% from last year. When in-person visits are made, team members car-share which also has the benefit of boosting morale.”

Becoming a member of Treepoints has allowed the team to understand their emissions. RPS Telecom’s office is fitted with environmentally friendly automatic lights, the company encourages a paperless policy and all packaging is recycled. 

 Natalie added: “Companies track productivity, they can measure sustainability too. Being able to track our emissions is a fantastic way to show the team the positive impact we are having on the planet.”
