Gaming provider Zitro announced Monday the implementation of new sustainable policies through the use of solar energy to further reduce the impact of its carbon footprint and provide its offices with 100% renewable energy.
This new initiative consists of 264 solar panels with an area of 528 square meters installed on the roof of its Technology Campus in Barcelona, producing an estimated power of 120 kW, which will promote sustainability, reduce CO2 emissions, and reduce energy costs. “This installation will reduce 82,509 kg of CO2 per year,” the company said in a statement.
As part of its strategy of social responsibility and sustainability, Zitro opts for renewable energies to combat climate change and has also managed to reduce 80% of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from energy consumption in software, according to the firm.
Additionally, the company stated it is also “committed to sourcing environmentally friendly raw materials from local suppliers for the manufacture of its products,” which results in savings in the energy used for transportation logistics, considerably reducing its carbon footprint.
Johnny Ortiz Viveiros, founder of Zitro, said: “This important commitment is just the beginning of a series of actions aimed at reducing our environmental impact and offsetting our footprint. The implementation of policies that contribute to protecting the environment is part of our company philosophy.”
“For this reason, we work and promote initiatives that contribute to becoming a greener company, doing our bit in building a more sustainable future”, he added. “We encourage other companies to join new initiatives that promote the sustainable development of their activities. Together we can make a positive difference.”
