‘To do the right thing by contributing to a more sustainable, responsible and inclusive world, starting at a grassroots level’
The climate crisis will be one of the defining challenges of our generation. We see and feel that climate is changing: wildfires, floods, and droughts are getting more common and the temperature is rising globally.
Greenhouse gases caused by human activity are the main drivers of climate change, therefore we must take action to limit global warming. This can only be done if all sectors of the global economy transform, and ramarketing wants to be an organization that lives, breathes, and drives this transformation.
Reducing carbon emissions
In March 2023, we delivered our first net-zero report, which outlined how our people and company can collectively combat the effects of climate change.
While our footprint is relatively small, we are committed to reducing our carbon emissions in the areas in which we have the greatest impact on the environment: our offices and energy usage and our emissions from commuting and the things we purchase.
We have committed to aligning our strategy with the Science Based Targets Initiative Net Zero Standard and established the following short-term science-based targets:
We will also undertake Carbon Literacy Training with the aim of becoming a Gold level Carbon Literate Organisation by 2025.
This will also ensure we can adequately support and inspire our clients in their ESG efforts.
Putting the ‘S’ in ESG: our nominated charities
Beyond our environmental impact, we know we have a role to play in the broader communities that we impact and we will be giving back as much as we can. As a first step, we asked our team to nominate charities for ramarketing to fundraise for in 2023. We had some fabulous nominations and we’ve now selected charities that we believe we can have the most positive impact for. To learn more about each charity, please click below.
Keep an eye on our social channels for updates on fundraising activities.
We have established an ESG committee who are responsible for the delivery of the actions within the plan and for identifying future opportunities. To ensure continual improvement, we will review the effectiveness of our plan in Q3 2023, updating and improving where needed. In Q1 2024 we will assess progress against the targets alongside the measurement of our 2023 GHG emissions.
We’ll be providing updates across the year in our insights section – so watch this space.
One of the most significant things we can do at ramarketing when it comes to supporting the fight against climate change is to influence our customers and our sector to take positive steps to do the same. The life sciences are buzzing with conversations around sustainability – now is the time to not only act but to shine an energy-efficient light on your efforts – and we can help you do both.
From strategic alignment, internal engagement, external transparency and promoting sustainable products or services to help you align growth with ESG initiatives – we have the skills and understanding to help you shape, deliver and communicate your ESG efforts.
