We want to help people use technology to make a difference. And that includes taking care of our environment as well as our clients.

At First Focus, our teams have gone to great lengths to set up and manage a range of climate-positive processes to ensure that our business operations have as little impact as possible on the environment – and where possible, we aim to reverse any damage we’ve previously done.

First Focus has chosen to do more – with carbon-negative offsets, external certification, and responsible e-waste management systems.

First Focus is committed to:

  • supporting remote work arrangements were possible to cut down on commuting.
  • managing our operations in line with ISO’s environmental certifications.
  • reducing e-waste for both our teams and our customers by partnering with a leading recycling provider.
  • offsetting carbon emissions from our activities to the point where we are climate positive.

Environmental actions

Across every department and in every project, we consistently monitor our environmental impact and improve our management systems to ensure we maximise our ability to reduce our footprint.

  • Decrease of non-renewable energy consumption and replacement with renewable energy sources.
  • Incrementally replacing petrol operated vehicles with electric operated vehicles.
  • Recycling 100% waste that can be recycled in all branch offices.
