Committed to Being a Leader in the Fight to Stop Climate Change

TechBrain measures our own carbon emissions, including that related to the IT equipment we transport to our customers. We have considered ways in which we can reduce our carbon emission, for example through the energy we use (including ways to reduce it through simple measures such as installing motion sensors and timers) and by locating ourselves close to our customers then using public transport where sensible.

We have offset the remainder by supporting the highest quality, third party validated carbon reduction and offset projects in the world that are fighting climate change now.
