Our impact model
At Cybercom, we regard sustainability as part of our reason to be. We are solution providers with the opportunity, as well as the responsibility to make a sustainable tomorrow. We are moving away from having a separate sustainability strategy to an ambitious and sustainable strategy integrating sustainability as a driver in all aspects of our business.
As a solution provider, Cybercom wants to highlight the importance of enabling a more sustainable tomorrow with technology. It is both a business opportunity and a responsibility for future generations to nudge our clients towards a better tomorrow.
The impending technological and digital revolution will transform or disrupt the businesses of our clients – from transportation and energy to food and materials. During the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, we learned that profound changes in behaviour and business models are possible. We found that the way we move, live, eat and work can change and that many activities can be moved online.
Many of these changes create opportunities for our clients to both reduce their negative impact from their operations, but also to accelerate their positive impact by enabling resource efficient and sustainable lifestyles, behaviours and consumption patterns that are less negative or even beneficial to our society.
Cybercom’s strategy is to help clients and society in general to identify and capture those opportunities, while also benefiting from increased competitiveness and growth.
Our long-term sustainability objectives are:
- Take climate action to increase long-term value- creation, maintain profitability and promote solid growth.
- Be a positive force for climate by the end of 2022.
- Achieve a gender minority above 30 percent by 2022.
- Achieve an average Enabled & Empowered score above 7 out of 10 by 2022.
Cybercom have committed to science-based reduction targets to achieve net zero emissions and a halving of emissions in less than 10 years:
During 2020, Cybercom joined the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, which is an ecosystem of leading organisations, committed to halving their emissions before 2030, integrating climate into their business strategy and contributing to climate action in society.
Cybercom acted as a contributing author and reviewer of the 1.5°C Business Playbook – a solid guideline for companies of all sizes that want to establish a clear climate strategy, define targets, set requirements for suppliers and align value propositions with a 1.5°C and net-zero ambition.
We use the playbook’s four pillars as the basis for how to disclose not only our climate impact but also our sustainability impact in general.
Our four-pillar disclosure model, based on the 1.5°C Business Playbook illustrates our ambition, strategies and progress.
PILLAR 1 | Tomorrow’s company
PILLAR 2 | Tomorrow’s value chain
We disclose our direct sustainability impacts from our current operations. As a consultancy firm with no manufacturing, our direct and indirect negative impacts are limited. However, we still have opportunities to better manage those that are under our direct control.
We disclose the impacts from our value chain. Our largest sources of negative climate impact in this category tend to be emissions from purchased goods and services and commuting travel. As a consultancy firm with no manufacturing, the negative impacts from our value-chain are limited.
PILLAR 3 | Tomorrow´s business
PILLAR 4 | Tomorrow´s society
We disclose how our business strategy and value
Cybercom has a unique opportunity to use
its expertise within connectivity, innovation,
and sustainability to provide its
clients and society in general with solutions to
the global challenges of our time, which creates business opportunities.
We disclose how we influence action in society, beyond our own business.
The world needs to create a vibrant economy with net zero emissions by 2050. This will involve swift and comprehensive changes in society, which will require both leadership and substantial investment. At Cybercom, we want all aspects of our business to contribute, from reducing our direct negative impact to maximising our positive impact.
We have the objective to become a positive force for the climate by the end of 2022. This means we will not only reduce our own negative footprint in line with what is required to stabilise temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures.
We will also take decisive actions to accelerate our positive handprint, enabling reductions of global emissions that significantly exceeds our negative footprint. This is our definition of becoming a net-positive contributor.
A company’s carbon footprint is based on the company as a source of emissions and includes the negative climate impact of the business throughout its value chain (disclosed in Pillars 1 and 2).
A company’s carbon handprint describes the consequences that arise in society when the company’s technology, products, services, or business models are used by customers and citizens. It also entails the impact caused by influencing action in society (disclosed in Pillars 3 and 4). A carbon handprint covers a company’s opportunities to make a positive contribution to society. In addition, we always strive to have a positive contribution on all 17 of the UN SDGs.
Our most significant positive impact comes from Pillar 3 when we integrate sustainability into our business strategy, our business model and value propositions, which maximises our positive impact from a sustainability perspective. Just as we aim to reduce our negative and accelerate our positive impact, we will enable our clients to do the same by developing and deploying technology.
