ESG and technology come together to do amazing things
The ESG (environment, social and governance) conversation today is less about doing no harm and more about going further and doing things in a better way. ESG is setting the journey for your organisation and it is reliant on the infrastructure to get there and all that is needed along the way.
When we think about improving people’s working lives, supporting the circular economy or striving for net-zero carbon emission, technology is a key foundation upon which we can action change.
Our trusted experts are here to provide guidance and support to help you build a better business.
As companies transform their estates both in the data centre and the workplace, waste is created. Many organisations keep this equipment for disaster recovery (DR) purposes or because they are concerned about the security impact. Show more
Through the use of IoT, organisations can monitor environmental variables such as water quality, water temperature, pressure, humidity, power, energy, movement and CO2 – this can be delivered remotely via a simple unified interface. Show more
When it comes to energy, there’s no single answer or big solution. We can’t wait for someone else we all need to start doing things. In 2017 Daisy moved our electricity supply to one that was 100% renewable. That means ALL our offices, data centres, Daisy Flex cloud platforms and core network are powered by renewable supplies.

Providing our services in a responsible and ethical way not only contributes to our ESG targets, it’s simply the right thing to do. We know we don’t have all the answers and we can’t solve all the problems, but we can do our bit. And if we all do a little bit, we can make a big change.
We continue to see growth in Connectivity, especially in SD-WAN as organisations can implement better control of their network, add resilience and security, and make decisions faster. And, as that traffic traverses our network it’s powered by renewable power.
Daisy is proud to help drive a healthier and more sustainable workplace for your business and employees through partners such as HPI Inc who apply circular economy principles to shift from virgin materials to use recycled content. This includes ocean-bound and closed-loop plastics, durable notebooks, desktops, and workstations, combined with maintenance and recovery services that keep valuable materials in use for as long as possible. Show more
HP now has more than 50 products across its range that includes ocean-bound plastics (more than any other manufacturer1) and 664 energy star® certified personal systems products – again, more than any other manufacturer2.

Another way many organisations have been forced to transform is by new ways of working. Businesses are still adapting to hybrid working.
Companies are also very aware of the social and environmental advantages by offering hybrid working.
‘The average total commute time using rail into London is now around 81 minutes per journey, over 2.5 hours a day’
‘Drivers spend up to 52 minutes per day on the road to work whilst bus commuters must set aside 79 minutes a day’
Our customers have seen a number of their concerns met by partnering with us to take their hybrid working strategies to the next step – from virtual desktop environments, secure homeworker connectivity, endpoint security and the supply of devices.
61% organisations say that improving the performance of a distributed workforce is a top business priority*
Whether working from home or returning to the office to work at a desk or to meet and collaborate – many organisations have been able to ensure their staff have secure resilient technology regardless of their location. Our solutions work in tandem with your internal policies and procedures to make sure that your requirements are met.

Digital transformation has been long spoken about, but many organisations are still wary of making a change. From our experience, this is down to several reasons. The main ones being lack of skills, lack of awareness, and no clarity on what can actually be achieved. We have consultation and analysis activities to make sure a project is defined properly from the start. Show more
More than half (53%) of UK organisations say making effective use of technology to meet their business needs is their biggest challenge over the next 12 months*.
Transformation can take many forms – from a tech refresh or migration, to simple efficiency solutions.
At the moment, one of the biggest reasons to make a change is the moving away from legacy services such as ISDN and PSTN.
These projects can solve a number of challenges, including helping companies with their ESG commitments. Commitments such as a move to cloud that can lower carbon footprint and property costs. We are now able to use tools such as the Microsoft Sustainability Calculator to measure the benefit of these moves from a carbon perspective. Moving certain workloads to Azure can reduce the consumed carbon by up to 80%.
Of course, not all workloads are suitable or business-ready for public cloud. That’s one of the reasons Daisy has its own cloud solution, that’s also powered by renewable energy. Regardless of the type of cloud your workload resides in, we can offer a single service level and it’s all powered by renewables.
Why not quantify your cloud footprint with Microsoft’s Emissions Impact Dashboard helps calculate carbon emissions related to Microsoft cloud services usage.
