Technology has become an indispensable part of today's world. Yet, this convenience comes at an environmental cost, with technology contributing up to 30% of business CO2e Scope 3 emissions. As the world accelerates towards a fully digital future, organisations increasingly recognise the environmental implications of their technology estates, fuelling a pressing need to take ownership of the problem and address their direct impact on the planet.
Are you ready to embark on your journey toward a sustainable IT future? Let COzPro be your trusted partner in reducing your IT estate's environmental impact. Measure it, manage it, and make a meaningful difference with COzPro today!
We are driven by a mission to empower our clients, partners, and suppliers to measure, manage, and model the environmental impact of their IT estate. Our goal is to pave the way for universal Sustainable IT and to promote practices that align with the principles of ESG standards. We're committed to extending environmental stewardship beyond regulatory mandates, demonstrating authentic dedication to a greener planet.
Whether you are bound by legal or industry regulations or simply driven by a commitment to CSR and ESG initiatives, you need access to accurate, up-to-date emission impact data to decarbonise your IT estate.
The award-winning COzPro Environmental Solution, designed and built by KA2, provides the power to make informed decisions around the journey to Sustainable IT assets and services, waste reduction, cost savings, and regulatory compliance.

COzPro has given us an accurate view of the carbon footprint of our organisation's IT assets. Whether it’s a new laptop or an old phone, those which are supplied/leased by vendors, we can view and report on the key data across our IT estate. It allows us to strategically plan how long we keep assets, how we replace them, or whether they should be reused within the business. Whilst we are in the early stages of maturing our CMDB, COzPro ensures informed decisions are made when it comes to the lifecycle of our assets, purchasing and vendor selection.Amanda Hepple

As part of our recent laptop refresh we engaged with KA2 to review the sustainability of prospective devices. KA2 were able to provide valuable information based on the manufacturer’s own sustainability information as well as the sustainability of device components. This information helped our decision-making process and meant that device and manufacturer sustainability was taken into consideration for this purchase, and not just the usual metrics of cost, device performance and device aesthetics.Andrew Osborn
Head of IT at Rider Levett Bucknall
The average annual carbon footprint of an individual in the UK is 15 tonnes of CO2e*. Surprisingly, an individual’s workspace, including a laptop, docking station, phone, mouse, keyboard, display, and printer, contributes 500 kg to their annual CO2e emissions. For an organisation with 5000 end users, this amounts to 2500 tonnes of CO2e per year. To put this in perspective, 2500 tonnes of CO2e is equivalent to the emissions from 961 return flights from London to Miami (2.6 tonnes per flight). By understanding your IT-related carbon impact, you can make sustainable technology choices and contribute to a greener planet.
