Secure Logiq has won the Intersec Award for Security Sustainability Service of the Year for its environmental efforts. The manufacturer of servers for HD surveillance systems won the award for reducing carbon emissions in the electronic security industry.
To become a carbon-negative company, Secure Logiq has taken bold steps. Although its products are essential for any enterprise electronic security system, they consume a lot of power during production and over their lifespan. With a mission to lead the industry by example, Secure Logiq joined an industry-oriented community at the beginning of 2022 with a short-term goal of becoming carbon neutral but with a long-term goal of offsetting its products’ carbon emissions.
Secure Logiq partnered with Cloudforests.ie, which provides a verifiable nature-based solution to offset the carbon emissions created by the business. This has led to the British server manufacturer planting the equivalent of 50 tennis courts worth of trees in 2022.
“We couldn’t be more proud of this achievement and the recognition of our commitment to sustainability in the industry,” said Secure Logiq’s Robin Hughes. “We want to say a huge thank you to all who have supported us and helped make this hugely important award possible. For example, technology partner Toshiba matched Secure Logiq one for one, doubling the number of trees we planted in Q4, while members of our sales team have given up some of their commission to add to the forest. This includes all the commission from other CloudForests cool partners, quite a figure when you consider that over half of CloudForests partners are electronic security manufacturers, distributors or installers.”
The long-term goal for this is moving from Secure Logiq servers being carbon neutral to entire security systems that are carbon neutral. This would mean not only is Secure Logiq’s business carbon negative, but the company will also have helped its customers achieve net zero.
