Doing well and doing good should go together. At Vertex, they do.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible. By transitioning to a hybrid office, work-from-home environment and utilising cloud services, we’ve already made big strides.
- Over the past year and a half, 90% of our employees have been working from home, helping significantly reduce our carbon footprint. In addition to work from home options, we coach our team around ways to reduce power usage while out of the office.
- We’ve partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to evaluate our power use effectiveness and are proud that our AWS Power Use Effectiveness is 1.2, translating to an 83% efficiency. We are committed to using providers with a goal to achieve 100% renewable energy usage for their global infrastructure.
- We’ve implemented sustainable practices at our facilities such as reusable water dispensaries, and auto-shut-off lighting. Recycling is strongly encouraged throughout the office and we participate in other waste management programmes.
- We are exploring options to broaden our sustainable sourcing programme and are committed to partnering with vendors that share our commitment to sustainable practices.
