Leading the Way in Sustainable Technology, RealTyme Partners with CSX Carbon

As part of our continuing mission to provide sustainable technology for our customers to collaborate securely, we are delighted to have partnered with UK-based start-up CSX Carbon. This partnership will help us support them in their ambitious climate mission as well as achieve our climate goals that includes a zero carbon operational footprint in 2023.

This is a strategic partnership with CSX Carbon as we continue to help provide our clients with a sustainable collaboration and communications platform, with leading security features that enable digital sovereignty. It will ensure as investors we can support the great work CSX Carbon are doing as they prepare to launch their platform in 2023.

Who Are CSX Carbon?

CSX Carbon are a UK start-up that is looking to transform the way organisations offset their carbon emissions. They will provide carbon trading using a carbon asset bank that will allow land managers to analyse their environmental impact and make positive changes. This consists of localised Nature Based Solutions that are fully measurable and can be effortlessly audited by its proprietary technology platform. They aim to develop a trusted carbon market, where corporate organisations can make real change for the planet and uphold integrity with verified carbon offsetting.

Being able to independently verify a company’s climate actions is a step in the right direction in the continuing battle to reduce global carbon emissions. At RealTyme, we recognised the valuable contribution CSX Carbon will make once launched and how their values align with our own climate strategy.

How RealTyme are Making a Difference

We are acutely aware of the impact Information Communication Technology (ICT) has on the environment, which is why our commitment to sustainability is fully defined and strategised. With more advancements and accelerated growth within the sector, sustainable technology is a must and companies have to act swiftly. It’s thought ICT's share of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were between 1.8% - 2.8% in 2021and could grow to exceed 14% by 2040,so to ensure this decreases and improves, companies need to commit to the cause. Below you will see just some of the extensive commitments we’ve made:

  • Reducing our direct emissions by using energy efficient, renewable energy in our offices
  • Continue to reduce our carbon footprint from business travel, especially through flights, by capping intensity to remain at least 25% below the industry threshold
  • Measuring our carbon footprint so that we are fully aware of the impact our technology has
  • Reach zero carbon operational footprint by 2025in our Geneva head office through energy efficient and renewable energy measures
  • Work with our suppliers to reach net zero carbon targets, to have at least 90% of our spending by 2025 with companies who actively measure and report their GHG emissions
  • Continue to engage with strategic partners like CSX Carbon and partner with international organisations, grass roots initiatives, and national governments in a capacity beyond our value chain.
  • Motivate both our employees and sub-contractors to use renewable energy wherever possible and reduce their own personal carbon footprint. This is to a target of 25% of our remote workforce to be powered by renewable energy by 2025, and 100% by 2035.
