Environment Policy

Grid Edge is committed to creating a positive impact on the environment, not only by empowering our customers via low-carbon flexibility, but also by being mindful of our own direct and indirect impact on the environment through our business activities. As such, we have drafted an environmental policy that we are committed to evolving in line with developing environmental challenges.

We are committed to:

  • Meeting or exceeding all Environmental legislation that applies to us as a Company.
  • Minimising the impact of use of data centres by continuing to use providers with robust environmental policies, such as Google.
  • Ensuring that potential suppliers’ environmental policies are key factors in supplier selection (see our Sustainable Procurement Policy for information on supplier selection).
  • Actively encouraging our staff to participate in bettering the environment, including via:
    • Participation in Cyclescheme;
    • Working towards a paperless environment;
    • Actively recycling all relevant materials in the office;
    • Committing to the use of public transport or electric vehicles for all off-site meetings wherever possible;
    • Requiring that all unnecessary equipment is turned off at the end of the working day;
    • Keeping environmental responsibility as a live topic across the business.
  • Promoting environmental responsibility across the building management and computing sectors.
  • To continue to factor carbon reduction into all product development.
  • To continue to engage with relevant bodies to ensure best practice in sustainability.


We are currently developing an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework via a dedicated working group. This framework is intended to be a core part of our strategy and key to our short- and long-term goals. Crucially, this framework will facilitate increased measurement of our environmental impact, leading to real-world insight and providing the opportunity for continual positive change.

We will continually review our Environmental Policy to reflect any changes in our business and ensure it remains ambitious in its scope and fit for purpose.

Responsibility for development and governance of this policy is undertaken by the Grid Edge Management Team and Board of Directors.

Formal approval for this policy was received from the Board of Directors January 2022.
