Fighting Climate Change

Carbon Net Zero by 2050

Govforms is helping fight climate change and is focused on removing CO2 emissions to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 in its business.

 

Govforms baseline total since 23rd May 2018 to 31st May 2022 is 1918 tCO2e.

 

Govforms predicts carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 1438 tCO2e; a reduction of 25%.

 

The areas Govforms is actively working on are customer facing digital services it builds, the process of digital form building in the Govforms supply chain eco-systems and where people physically travel.

 

Data centres are the biggest driver of carbon generation in our digital and software cloud software and services. Govforms has tied in with the major cloud providers, AWS, Microsoft and Google carbon reducing data centre strategies and is in the process of creating a carbon consumption calculator for customer visibility.

 

The second biggest generation of energy is the uploading and processing of attachments by users in digital journeys to comply with customers' policy needs. Govforms seeks to minimise the need for such artefacts by good service digital design and trying to influence policy simplification with customers. Where artefacts are used then Govforms works to dynamically calculate the likely carbon generated to derive what offset is needed for customer funding requests.

 

The third area is in the Govforms building process, supply chain and eco-system and people physical movement. Govforms is actively modelling its supply process to uncover the carbon effects of video calls, chat, collaboration software, testing cloud software, emailing and physical travel to reduce carbon generation and encourage its eco-system to carry through as well.

 

Govforms is seeking to partner with a VSCE or similar to improve its modelling and benchmarking of digital hungry items and carbon off set cost enablement for clients for inclusion in project work funding.
