Targets and outcomes
Cybercom is careful with purchasing, and demands good waste management from landlords. Negative impact must be reduced, and Cybercom has identified business travel as the most important key figure that the company can most influence. Travel is measured, managed and monitored.
Cybercom has made progress in the environmental area over time, particularly as regards travel. Business travel has been reduced and more journeys are made by train, as opposed to flying. Cybercom has almost no company cars.
Cybercom encountered problems measuring and following up business travel in 2018 when the travel provider switched reservations systems. As a result, Cybercom had to fill in the gap with manual follow-up of expense reports and is now carrying out a procurement to contract a new travel provider and gain better opportunities for measurement and monitoring.
Emissions are still lower than when measurements began and, overall, Cybercom believes the environmental performance of the business is at an acceptable level.
