My eCarbon

Empowering sustainability by helping you tackle the organisation's digital carbon footprint.

As we embrace an increasingly digital world, technology becomes an integral part of our daily lives, revolutionising the way we work, connect, and consume. Digitalisation has brought many benefits to various sectors in the world. However, we also recognise that such drastic impact has come with a cost to the environment. The production, use and data transfer of digital devices causes more CO₂ emissions than one might expect.

Endless remote meetings, a multitude of apps and streaming services, constant online presence – all of these contribute to the surge in electrical device usage and the staggering volume of data we generate. And with each digital interaction comes a hidden cost – CO₂ emissions or digital carbon footprint – resulting from the production, use, and data transfer of our beloved digital devices and infrastructure.

Consider this…

A typical 30-minute Microsoft Teams meeting with three participants using regular computers can generate approximately 4 kilograms of CO₂ emissions. However, if each team member sent just one less email/chat message per day, we could collectively reduce emissions by an impressive 25,000 kilograms of CO₂ annually.

To put it in perspective, this reduction is equivalent to offsetting the carbon emissions from driving a car around the Earth’s equator three times.

At Talan, we acknowledge the importance of addressing environmental impact and assuming responsibility for a sustainable future.

Consequently, we have developed a distinctive approach to target specific aspects of carbon footprint reduction through our specialised accelerator, My eCarbon.

Our Approach

Whether you are at the starting point or further along the journey, we can help to embed My eCarbon into your overall strategy.

Each My eCarbon project is supported by a team with deep understanding and expertise in the wider ESG regulatory and commercial landscape.

We begin our assignment by building our understanding of your enterprise’s current approach. For those with an established climate plan we can help to map and forecast the benefit of My eCarbon into your future scenarios. Understanding your priorities can also help us tailor the My eCarbon solution to meet your needs.

For enterprises at an earlier stage in the journey we can help define what needs to be done, provide a detailed ESG assessment and craft a strategic roadmap, leading to the implementation of Microsoft Sustainability Manager. Our approach goes beyond evaluating your current ESG status, as we harness the power of Microsoft Power Platform and Microsoft AI for seamless automation. Together, we can pave the way towards a sustainable and responsible future.
