Our Carbon Footprint

At Sambro we recognise both the potential long-term impacts of climate change, and the affect it is having here and now. The effects on our planet and its people cannot be ignored, and we believe that in order to effectively address global warming, businesses, governments and societies across the world need to come together, collaborate and invest in shared policies and technologies in order to reduce emissions.   
We calculate our Scope 1 and Scope 2 Carbon Footprint each year, in an effort to understand our emissions and how we can best reduce them. The below graph shows our emissions, split by scope, in tons of CO2e for the past 3 years.

These statistics take into account the emissions for all Sambro operated premises – our offices in Amsterdam, the UK and Hong Kong.

Whilst we are proud of the calculations we have made so far, and the overall reduction in emissions of 3.4%, we understand there is more to do. We are very much at the start of our Carbon Footprint journey, and intend to be honest and transparent throughout the process.

Our full Carbon Footprint reports can be found below:

As we look ahead, we aim to continue calculating our Scope 1 and 2 emissions, and also start to tackle Scope 3. This is the hardest part of the Carbon Footprint process for any business, as it takes into account ALL indirect emissions – everything from the manufacture of goods, to freight, employee travel, waste production, water consumption and more. This is obviously a huge amount of data, and we want to ensure anything we report on is accurate and valid.
