All changes are detailed by our engineers, including the assets affected, the reason for the change, proposed scheduled time, risk and risk mitigation analysis and actions including the impact of change on the backup and security systems. Detailed implementation, testing and backout plans must be defined for each change. All changes must be approved by Quadris and the customer’s CAB team or individual. All configuration changes are tracked through the same system and made available via email and our self-service portal.

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

Quadris has been a carbon neutral organization since the 1st of April 2020 and aims to be carbon zero by 2040. To achieve this target, we have implemented a Sustainable Development policy that commits Quadris to have a carbon reduction plan in place. As we work towards our 2040 zero carbon goal, we have from 1st April 2020 been carbon net zero (or carbon neutral) in our own operations. We’ve done this by investing in verified carbon reduction projects overseas to offset our own emissions. Our Carbon Net Zero plan is aligned to the PAS 2060 specification for detailing how to demonstrate carbon neutrality which is produced and published by the British Standards Institute (BSI).

Emissions are reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard1 and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting. Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.

We set ongoing initiatives for reducing our carbon emissions each commitment period which runs in parallel to our financial year and reporting on these initiatives annually.

Our carbon reduction plans for each year are available here:
