At Krome Technologies we understand that doing business sustainably is critical for everyone’s future.
In line with the global efforts to combat climate, change we’ve made a commitment to ensure sustainability is at the core of our operations.
By measuring and managing our Greenhouse Gas emissions, we hope to not only reduce our carbon footprint but also set an example for other businesses to follow. Ultimately, our goal is to create a more sustainable future for generations to come.
We plan to halve our GHG emissions before 2035, achieving net-zero emissions ahead of the UK’s 2050 target and are committed to disclosing our
Tech Zero Initiative
In early 2022, we took a significant step towards sustainability by joining the “Tech Zero” taskforce, a collaborative initiative focused on achieving zero emissions in the technology sector. As part of this commitment, we embarked on a comprehensive evaluation and measurement process for our Greenhouse Gas emissions, specifically for the previous year.
To ensure accuracy and adherence to industry standards, we utilised the widely recognised GHG Protocol. This internationally accepted framework provides a robust methodology for quantifying and reporting Greenhouse Gas emissions, enabling us to establish a baseline and track our progress in reducing our environmental impact.
By undertaking this evaluation, we gained valuable insights into our carbon footprint across various aspects of our operations, including energy consumption, transportation, waste management, and more. This comprehensive assessment allowed us to identify key areas where we can implement targeted strategies to reduce emissions and enhance sustainability practices.
The Measurement of Greenhouse Gas Emissions within 3 Scopes
- Scope 1: Direct Emissions, these are emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the company, such as company vehicles and process emissions. As we have no specific machinery emissions, our scope 1 emissions have been calculated using the total mileage made in Krome vehicles and vans in 2021.
- Scope 2: Indirect Emissions, these are emissions from electricity consumption that are not included in Scope 1. These are measured by tracking the amount of electricity and gas purchased and using data from the energy providers to calculate the associated emissions.
- Scope 3: Other Indirect Emissions, these are emissions that are a result of the company’s activities, but occur from sources outside of the company’s direct control, such as emissions from supply chain operations, employee commuting, and waste disposal. These have been measured by collecting data from our suppliers, surveying employees, and tracking waste disposal practices to estimate emissions from these activities.

Measuring our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in 2021 has helped us to understand our current carbon footprint and set appropriate targets for reducing our emissions in the future. However, as our base year was conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are prepared to see an increase in emissions in our 2022 report as a result of reduced business activities and office usage in 2021.
Whilst we are in the early stages of our efforts to address the impact that our business can have on climate change, we are now planning how our future actions will help reduce our carbon emissions and are committed to doing our utmost to protect our environment for the future.
