At County Hearing, we’re always doing our bit to stay environmentally conscious and ensure we’re making hearing care more sustainable. We are proud to work with some fantastic suppliers who do the same! Phonak are one of these and have recently released a fantastic statement about how they’re helping to ensure sustainability within their practices.
“We have made an explicit commitment to continuously promote and pursue environmentally friendly practices throughout the whole lifecycle of our products and across all business activities.
Our new ESG Strategy IntACT sets ambitious targets that demonstrate our firm commitment to combating climate change and attaining environmental sustainability. Through energy savings and the transition to renewable energy, we will align our long-term carbon reduction targets with the Science-Based Targets Initiatives (SBTi) aim to keep global warming below 1.5°C
In 2020/21, we set an internal target of reducing our emissions from heating, transport and electricity by 50% by 2025 vs. 2019. While efforts to reduce our operational footprint are underway, we are dedicated to becoming carbon-neutral in our operations by the end of 2021. Emissions that cannot yet be avoided or reduced will be compensated through investments in certified carbon offsetting projects.”
It is great to hear about some of the fantastic ways our suppliers are doing their bit to transition to making hearing care more sustainable for the future. We’re so pleased to work alongside them on this mission!
