The primary objective of TeamViewer is to make the world function more effectively in each manner. TeamViewer’s sustainability initiatives are bundled underneath one roof with c-a-r-e, outlining clear objectives, overall goals, and measurements on its path to becoming an even more sustainable organisation.
“With our c-a-r-e initiative, we outline the significance of contemporary technology access, equality, and CO2 reduction for us,” explains Alexander Gührer, CCO & Director of Corporate Development. “As part of our efforts, we are accelerating our commitment to become climate-neutral, with the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2025 — five years sooner than previously envisaged.”
The cornerstone of TeamViewer’s proposition is sustainability. Its products arose from the desire to eliminate the need for travel and physical presence, which naturally leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions. This good impact is amplified by a business strategy that provides private users with free access to TeamViewer products for non-commercial uses. TeamViewer and its product line have developed dramatically since its inception, but the firm continues to assist its clients in avoiding unnecessary travel and thereby being more sustainable.
Distances across the globe might well be effortlessly spanned by employing TeamViewer technology to remotely maintain or repair machines and access devices ranging from mobile phones and laptops to heavy equipment, robotic systems, and automobiles, making travel redundant in many circumstances. As a result, TeamViewer helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint by avoiding around 37 megatons of CO2e emissions every year, which is equivalent to a fully-booked A380 flying 7,000 times directly from Singapore to New York or the emissions of 11 million ordinary automobiles in a year.
As part of its sustainability reports, TeamViewer participates in the Carbon Disclosure Project to analyse and optimise its own impact. In addition, the organisation observes its emissions in accordance with GHG protocol guidelines, employing certified software for computations and external scientific help. The outcomes demonstrate TeamViewer’s accomplishments: In 2021, the corporation lowered CO2e emissions by around one-third relative to the earlier year.
TeamViewer’s priorities are reflected in the name c-a-r-e: Climate neutrality, access to technology, reduced emissions, and equality are all priorities for the company’s sustainability programme. At the same time, it serves as a blueprint for specific steps:
- Carbon neutrality: In accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative’s (SBTi) 1.5 °C objective, TeamViewer intends to achieve climate neutrality by 2025.
- Access to technology: TeamViewer uses its free software for non-commercial and socially good purposes, democratising technology and making it more inclusive.
- Reduced emissions: TeamViewer’s solutions help clients avoid emissions and provide climate-neutral goods powered entirely by green energy.
- Equality: Committed to establishing a varied and prejudice-free working environment, TeamViewer will boost female presence in management across all levels to at least 33% by the end of 2024 and embraces cultural variety through zero-tolerance discrimination policy.
TeamViewer supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals and has based its sustainability aims on them.
