At MyGroupSolutions we are dedicated to environmental sustainability and limiting the impact that our business operations have on the environment. We think that our customers want to do the same, so our environmental policy includes helping our customer’s do their bit when selecting products and services.
Our selection of products, the companies we partner with, and our suppliers are based on quality, reliability and value but also how they impact the environment.

Offsetting our carbon footprint
Our businesses produced an estimated 13.3 tonnes of Co2 (Carbon Dioxide) between 21/08/18 – 20/08/19. This calculation included our business activities, use of resources, energy consumption and our commutes to work. We are committed to reducing this each year but in 2019 have offset this carbon in support of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We have signed up to support the Borehole project in Uganda which provides a source of clean drinking water to a local community and works towards 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
