Sure Isle of Man is implementing a long-term strategy to improve island life and do its part to stop the devastating impact of global climate change. The telecommunications and ICT provider has prioritised its commitment to promoting sustainability and environmental care by enrolling in ESI Monitor’s Environmental Business Operations Framework. The enrolment has helped Sure to track, analyse, and mitigate its emissions output, among other environmental measurements in the Isle of Man.

The start of a transformative sustainability journey

Sure Isle of Man will complete an annual data submission, tracking its impact on the island’s environment so that it can make improvements in the future. It is now officially considered an Environmental and Social Impact Monitor, or ESI Monitor. ESI Monitors are organisations that are empowered to improve their environmental and/or social sustainability through measurement, minimisation, management, and benchmarking.

Once Sure has been measured, it can assess the extent of its carbon footprint in the Isle of Man, recognise areas for improvement, and develop specific action plans. It will then move into the project and change management phase to minimise its carbon output and consistently reduce emissions by re-measuring every year.

Being community and sustainability focused is part of Sure’s wider business strategy for the next five years and beyond. It recognises the importance of mitigating the impact of climate change and the effect that larger organisations in the Isle of Man can have in taking the island on its sustainability journey.

Empowering employees to take the Isle of Man’s sustainable future into their own hands

Sure has also established a ‘green taskforce,’ made up of employees across the business. These passionate volunteers champion a variety of areas for environmental improvement including waste and water, energy and buildings, travel, value chain, education and awareness, and mitigation and offsetting. Together, they will be instrumental in ensuring that Sure is doing whatever it can to tackle climate change to help maintain the local ecosystem, improving life for everyone in the Isle of Man.

Mike Phillips, Chief Executive at Sure Isle of Man, said:

“Climate change is a problem that must be addressed by every industry, but especially those developing new technology. Sure is proud to partner with ESI Monitor to ensure we are held accountable for how we tackle our own environmental impact.

“We know that this is just the start of our journey and we are keen to work with the team to develop a strategy for how we can limit our carbon footprint and produce products and services that are as sustainable as possible.

“Connecting the Isle of Man community for a better future is at the heart of everything we do at Sure, but to fulfil this mission we have to play our part in making sure there is a bright future for everyone to enjoy.

Ian Corder, Director of Standards and Operations at ESI Monitor, said:

“Over the years, we’ve witnessed Sure’s commitment to its local community and we’re excited to see these efforts expand into the environmental space in a formalised way. It’s important that technology-focused businesses like Sure measure and reflect on their environmental impact, to discover ways to innovate without costing the environment.”

Sure has also enrolled in the Environmental Business Operations Framework across all seven of its territories, demonstrating its prioritisation of the important issues of climate change and environmental impact in each of its communities around the world.
