Send a Cow uses CloudApps to deliver proactive monitoring of its environmental impact across its UK and African operations and to help it report emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
Under the CloudApps foundation programme, Send a Cow receives Sustainability Suite licenses and consulting time to allow it to benchmark key sustainability metrics in the same way as a corporate CloudApps customer. The CloudApps foundation follows the 1-1-1 model. This integrated philanthropy approach allows CloudApps employees to volunteer 1% of their working time, the company to donate 1% of its equity into the foundation and deliver 1% of its product to not-for-profit institutions aligned to its corporate sustainability mission.
- Automated production of annual Carbon Disclosure Report has dramatically reduced manpower investment previously required
- Proactive tracking of environmental KPIs covering total emissions, waste and emissions from business travel have enabled a reduction in both cost and environmental footprint
- Tracking intensity factor of total emissions by number of African households they work with will enable Send a Cow to grow their operations responsibly, helping more stricken families whilst remaining as sustainable as possible themselves
Recent events have shown how important it is to support African farmers who are working in harmony with the environment. Send a Cow’s work, based on the principle of communities working together with the resources they have, has made us very aware of the resources we consume in that work. Our tie-up with CloudApps provides a valuable way for us to monitor closely and easily report on our resource usage, allowing us to reassure our benefactors that we are living by our founding principles.
