Environmental, Social & Governance

Operating with a broader purpose

While the fundamental purpose of a company is to be profitable, it’s increasingly important to view the impact of an organization in light of a wider array of stakeholders than just its financial beneficiaries. GreyOrange’s stakeholders are also our employees, the communities in which we do business, and the environment. For this reason, we are working to measure the environmental and social effects of our activities and the products we sell, and devise an environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy to report on the effects of our actions in a robust way.

Measuring Our GHG emissions

Environmental, Social & Governance

GreyOrange began monitoring our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – also known as carbon footprint in 2021 (our base year) – encompassing scope 1 and scope 2 emissions. Our goal is to reduce our scope 1 and 2 emissions 20% by 2025 – with a later stage goal of tracking and reducing scope 3 emissions. Scope 1 refers to direct emissions on company premises, scope 2 refers to indirect emissions from purchased electricity, and scope 3 refers to indirect emissions further up and down the supply chain. 

During the base year, we measured emissions at our global fulfillment center (GFC-1) and our offices in Gurugram, India. Emissions were 276 tons of CO2 equivalent at GFC-1 and 442 tons of CO2 equivalent at the offices. Per-employee emissions were 1840 kg at GFC-1 and 680 kg at the offices. 

These numbers provide a representative picture of GreyOrange’s emissions. However, to yield the fullest possible data on our overall carbon footprint, we have begun efforts to calculate GHG emissions for our other offices in the US and for remote employees under scopes 1, 2 and 3.

Green initatives

At GFC-1 we are transitioning to using renewable energy by installing solar panels to meet 25% of the plant’s energy needs for our production unit. Additionally, our India offices use 100% LED lighting and our Atlanta, Georgia office is changing its lights to LED so that all our office lighting will be 100% LED.

Evaluating our EHS performance

GreyOrange is a leader in environmental, health and safety (EHS) initiatives in our space. The environment and our people’s health and safety are paramount. We conduct EHS audits of all our offices and we have started to collect EHS data for our manufacturing plants and client sites using a consistent framework. And we have achieved results. By tracking potentially unsafe actions and conditions and working to mitigate them, we have achieved more than 1400 accident-free days – almost four years so far – at our manufacturing facility and offices. Our goal is to continue to be accident-free.
