Konftel Strengthens Climate Neutral Ethos
In an era of agile working with huge demand for conferencing and collaboration hardware, protecting the planet is just as important as connecting the world, for pioneering manufacturer Konftel.
Konftel was the first in the collaboration devices sector to earn official Climate Neutral certification – which has now been successfully extended for the second year in a row. Climate Neutral Certified status means all greenhouse gas emissions have been offset, across all aspects of the business, from manufacturing and product packaging to transportation. Konftel continues to cut impact at source too with a series of new initiatives announced.
For VExpress, it is a privilege working with such an environmentally conscious company like Konftel and we congratulate them on their latest success. Conferencing can help preserve the planet in many different ways.
Being a trendsetter is nothing new for Konftel, according to Regional Sales Director, Jeff May, who cites how the booming business was the very first to manufacture and sell a commercial conference phone more than 30 years ago. “It all started in a basement in Sweden when a bank director needed a conference phone in his office. Today we have grown into one of the biggest players in the world for collaboration endpoint solutions, bringing people closer together.”
He added: “Konftel is certified for the second successive year with the Climate Neutral standard. This means we have offset all our greenhouse gas emissions and are taking action to further reduce those emissions. Today’s hybrid working trends has triggered a huge explosion is conferencing equipment sales. But buying from Konftel ensures our customers have a ‘clear climate conscience’ that there is no overall impact on the planet. We believe every company should #beclimateneutral”
