As Enroly scales, we’re committed to ensuring that the health of our planet and sustainability form a key part of our strategy and values.
That’s why we’ve pledged to reduce our carbon emissions, commissioned a consultation into developing more sustainable processes, and are producing practical guidelines that everyone in the organisation can follow.
We also aim to better understand and measure our platform's positive impact on global emissions, for example, by providing more efficient tools for collaboration that reduce the need for student travel back and fourth to agent offices.
What action are we taking?
At the moment, we’re prioritising establishing our baseline carbon footprint and implementing emissions reduction policies.
The company has signed up to the SME Climate Commitment, recognising that climate change poses a threat to the economy, nature and society at large, and has committed to take action immediately in order to:
- Halve our greenhouse gas emissions before 2030.
- Achieve net zero emissions before 2050.
- Disclose our progress on a yearly basis.
In doing so, we’re proud to be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission.
This project is being spearheaded by John Crick, Director of Enroly Services and Compliance. John has recently become an Associate Member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) to better support Enroly’s journey with extensive resources and the latest policy updates.
John says, ‘We recognise that as a relatively small organisation, this is only the start of a long journey. But we’re proud to be taking steps in the right direction.
‘As a remote-first company, it would be easy to be complacent about our own team’s impact on the environment.
‘But beyond this, given the huge efficiencies Enroly brings to the collaboration between universities and global education agents, as well as virtual in-country collaboration between agents and students, we feel that there's a huge opportunity for Enroly to demonstrate a positive environmental impact on a global scale, with the necessity to travel potentially significantly reduced for these stakeholders. We’re determined to begin measuring these impacts and doing what we can to maximise them.
'I look forward to sharing our progress over the coming months.’
