British Standards Certifies TDCX's Carbon Footprint Reporting

Countries around the world have teamed up to find solutions to climate change.

Over 120 delegates from nations around the world meet at the Conference of Parties (COP) each year to review the implementation of the United Nations’ framework convention on climate change. 

Big Companies Join The Movement

While countries are pushing for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, renowned corporations have joined forces in the fight against climate change by pledging to reduce their carbon footprint by a certain amount each year. 

A total of more than 300 companies, including Inc. AMZN, Microsoft Corp. MSFT and Uber Technologies Inc. UBER have signed The Climate Pledge and agreed to achieve net-zero carbon by 2040.

Towards Carbon Neutrality

Companies such as TDCX Inc. TDCX, a digital customer experience solutions provider, announced last year that it had reduced its overall carbon footprint, supporting the shift toward a low-carbon economy.

TDCX reportedly achieved carbon neutrality by taking a two-step process — reducing its carbon output and offsetting what the company is unable to lessen by using carbon credits, through the United Nations Carbon Offset Platform. As of last year, TDCX offset 38,770 tons of carbon dioxide — the equivalent of the amount of carbon produced by 8,400 vehicles in a year.

“At TDCX, we believe that businesses play an important role in promoting and accelerating sustainability. Given the far-reaching impact of climate change, we made it a priority to reduce our carbon footprint across our operations globally,” TDCX Founder and CEO Laurent Junique said.

The company is launching a number of environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives, including regular tree planting and other activities aimed at conserving water, minimizing single-use plastics and reducing waste through recycling.

A Milestone in Sustainability Reporting

TDCX recently received a satisfactory opinion statement from the British Standards Institution (BSI), confirming that the company’s carbon footprint report reasonably meets the ISO 14064-1:2018 criteria for greenhouse gas management system documentation.

This validates TDCX’s claim that it has achieved carbon neutrality with a verified greenhouse gas report accompanied by the company's U.N.-certified emission reduction certificate.

Eliza Acuña, TDCX vice president of business strategy, said that while it wasn’t an easy process given the differing requirements of the various markets TDCX has a presence in, the milestone is an important achievement for the company. She said, “We have long been an environmentally conscious company and the process helped us to understand our carbon footprint and to take steps in reducing it. “.
