London, UK — July 12, 2023 Exertis, one of the UK&I’s largest and fastest-growing technology distribution and specialist service providers, has announced its support for NTT DATA Business Solutions’ sustainability initiative, which sees the company plant a tree for every Consulting and SAP Managed Services day it delivers for its customers each quarter.
The partnership began six years ago when NTT DATA Business Solutions was selected by Exertis to implement SAP® across their organisation. Fast forward to the present day; Exertis has improved operational efficiency and optimised the product supply chain with strong SAP foundations and comprehensive SAP Managed Services from NTT DATA Business Solutions.
Commenting on the new initiative, Barry Robinson, Head of Sustainability at Exertis UK said “at Exertis, we believe that it’s our responsibility to do our part in protecting the planet for future generations. Our business is on its own journey to carbon neutrality, so we’re always looking for new ways to make a positive impact on the environment. Partnering with NTT DATA Business Solutions on this initiative is the perfect fit for our values and goals.”
Under this initiative, NTT DATA Business Solutions will plant a tree for every day that the two companies work together, with the goal of offsetting carbon emissions and contributing to the global effort to combat climate change. The trees will be planted in areas around the world where they will have the greatest impact and provide the most benefits to local communities.
“We’re proud to partner with Exertis on this important initiative,” said Andy Steer VP, CTO, and Chair of the NTT DATA Business Solutions UK&I Sustainability Board, “as a global company, we recognise the need to take action to protect the planet, and we believe that by working together, we can make a real difference. This partnership with Exertis is just one of the many ways we’re showing our commitment to sustainability and doing our part for the environment.”
Andy continued: “As a result of our partnership with our customers, we planted 58,509 trees in our first year of this initiative, in projects around the world including India, Central America, Sri Lanka, and the UK. We’re looking forward to planting thousands more this financial year.”
