so climate actions targets can be met
At Vivid Edge we are committed to acting responsibly in relation to Environmental, Social and Governance matters, and these are integrated into how we do business and make decisions. Our mission is to stimulate exponential growth in energy efficiency globally and ensure a sustainable planet for future generations. Our whole reason for existing is to improve the planet by using our “as a service model” to encourage, support and accelerate the progress of our customers in reducing their emission of greenhouse gases, and reducing their consumption of the world’s resources. Any action we take that adversely impacts this principle can damage our reputation, reduce our competitive advantage, and have negative implications on our growth and is to be avoided. We recognise that we have a moral obligation towards our stakeholders, employees and the broader community to ensure that we are actively managing and minimising the impact of our operations
and services on the environment. Our company’s future and the future of our environment are interconnected.

Our objective is not only to sustain our environment for our descendants but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done. We believe that our corporate responsibility goes beyond our proprietary borders and therefore every effort will be made to conserve resources throughout our operations.
The key areas we focus on the day-to-day running of our business in recognition of our commitment to the environment are:

Vivid Edge will help to protect and enhance natural habitats and wildlife, taking appropriate opportunities to enhance them and being sensitive to landscape issues.
