Dialog Semiconductor has teamed up with ClimateCare to offset its operational emissions for the first time. Corporate responsibility and a commitment to sustainable business practices are important to the Dialog business model and a central component of Dialog’s strategy to deliver long-term profitable growth. The decision to offset with ClimateCare whose programmes not only cut carbon but also improve lives, is a simple extension of Dialog’s commitment to sustainability.
Dialog wanted to find a project which had resonance with its business and The Tajikistan Hydro project, which cuts CO2 emissions and provides reliable, renewable electricity to communities in a remote region of central Asia was the ideal candidate. The stunning Pamir Mountains of south-east Tajikistan and northern Afghanistan are known collectively as the Roof of the World. Today, residents of the region say that a light is being shone on the roof of their world, thanks to this complete overhaul of their electricity grid.
“Our product designs include a range of green IC solutions; we are actively working to minimise the carbon footprint of our business. Offsetting our residual footprint is a natural next step and we’re delighted to partner with ClimateCare to support the provision of renewable energy to remote communities in Tajikistan and over the border in Afghanistan. It’s heartening to know that the Tajikistan Hydro project we’re supporting with our offset funds is providing hospitals, schools, homes and businesses in these remote regions with a reliable electricity supply.” Jean-Michel Richard, Chief Financial Officer.
