Systemagic goes Carbon Neutral

The team at Systemagic have lived up to their DOING IT DIFFERENTLY ethos once again by becoming a Carbon Neutral business.

Managing director James Eades hopes that if a tech-based business can manage to go carbon neutral it might encourage other businesses to follow suit.   The process was fairly straightforward, as James explains:

“Being carbon neutral means that our business adds absolutely no extra carbon dioxide to the atmosphere in a normal year of trading.   I have a young daughter so sustaining the environment is important to me and when I put my idea to the rest of the team everyone was happy to get on board.

It took us around 4 months to get the business completely neutral and involved calculating our emissions, working on reducing them by changing the way we work in some areas, investing in eco-friendly kit and by purchasing carbon offsets”

Systemagic decided to invest in planting trees to offset their emissions and worked hard to find a carbon offset projects here in the South West.   They even decided to forgo their official Carbon Neutral certification as James explains:

The final step of certification was to pay over £1000 for the certification which included, ironically, a paper certificate.   We thought that was a bit of a waste so instead we used the money to plant another 1000 trees here in the South West.”
