Understanding ESG and its importance for Redcentric’s customers

About ESG

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is a framework that helps organisations measure and manage their impact on the environment, society, and their own governance practices. It’s a broad concept that encompasses how a company’s operations affect the environment, its relationship with employees, customers, and the community, as well as its internal systems of accountability and governance.

For Redcentric, embracing ESG principles means taking responsibility not only for our operational footprint but also for how we influence our partners, customers and other stakeholders.

Why ESG matters

For our customers, ESG is not just a buzzword—it’s a critical factor in your decision-making processes. By partnering with Redcentric, you can be assured that you are working with a company committed to sustainability and ethical practices. Here’s why it’s important:

Sustainability Reporting: Our ESG initiatives help our customers to meet their own sustainability goals by providing transparent data on our environmental impacts. This includes our energy consumption and the efficiency of the products and services we provide.

Regulatory compliance: We assist our customers by adhering to regulatory requirements related to environmental and social governance, which is increasingly becoming a mandate in many industries.

Reputation and trust: By demonstrating our commitment to ESG, we enhance our reputation and build trust. This, in turn, supports our customers, enabling you to confidently report your supply chain’s sustainability practices.


Using external expertise

At Redcentric, we recognise the importance of leveraging external expertise to guide us and enhance our ESG initiatives. We have partnered with EcoVadis and Inspired Energy to guide our efforts and ensure our strategies are robust and effective.


EcoVadis is a global sustainability assessment platform that evaluates and benchmarks our sustainability performance across various metrics. Each year, we complete a comprehensive questionnaire and receive a sustainability scorecard, which highlights our strengths and areas for improvement. This transparent assessment allows our customers to access our sustainability data, ensuring you can meet your responsible supply chain practices.

Inspired Energy

Inspired Energy helps us understand our carbon footprint and develop a pathway to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Their expertise in energy and sustainability enables us to set and implement clear plans to improve our ESG performance, covering a range of regulatory metrics to ensure comprehensive and accurate disclosures.


Redcentric’s ESG Initiatives

Our commitment to ESG is reflected in several key initiatives:

Energy efficiency in data centres: We have undertaken significant projects to enhance energy efficiency in our data centres. This includes an ongoing programme to install solar panels as well as investments in our cooling facilities. These improvements help reduce our environmental footprint by providing more energy-efficient services.

Quarterly ESG Committee meetings: Our ESG committee, comprising Ops board members and other guests, meets quarterly to review our risks, obligations, and progress on our ESG targets. This centralised approach ensures we meet our reporting obligations and continuously improve our strategies.

ESOS reporting: Every four years, we produce an Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) report on our energy consumption. This report is part of our broader commitment to transparency and accountability in our energy use.

TCFD reporting: The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework guides our reporting on how climate initiatives impact our financials and our customers’ energy use. This includes detailed analysis across Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions:

Scope 1: Direct emissions from our operations.

Scope 2: Indirect emissions from business travel and fuel use.

Scope 3: Emissions influenced by your use of our products and services.
