Reduced climate footprint
Sleep Cycle's ambition is to minimize our impact on the environment and climate. By first mapping the emissions that our operations are creating, we will then be able to set goals and develop a plan for how emissions are to be reduced over time.
Due to its digital operations, Sleep Cycle has a limited impact on the climate and the environment. We are aware however, that the majority of our emissions are indirect and are found within scope 2 and 3, with emission sources such as electricity, district heating, district cooling, operation and use of Sleep Cycle's sleep services. As we create a clearer picture of our impact on the environment and climate, we can also lay the groundwork to set goals and activities that contribute to reducing our emissions moving forwards.
SMALL BUT IMPORTANT STEPS
The environmental impact that comes from Sleep Cycle's business operations mainly consists of the consumption of electricity and heat that takes place in our office premises. Primarily, we focus on what we can directly influence to reduce our environmental impact, such as making conscious choices when purchasing materials and services, and using trains and public transport for business trips whenever possible. During the first quarter of 2023, the business will move to new office premises in a BREEAM-certified property. This means that the property's environmental performance is assessed by a number of factors, including, the building's energy use, choice of building materials and geographical location with regards to access to public transport. For us as tenants, additional value is added by a beneficial indoor environment, such as, the premises' lighting, acoustics and air quality which are designed to have a positive impact on our well-being, health and productivity.
Sleep Cycle uses cloud-based data storage for the operation of our sleep services and suppliers who carry out active sustainability work in terms of minimizing emissions and energy use.
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT RANGE WITH EFFICIENT BATTERY LIFE
Our goal in every development project and when updating our sleep service is to ensure efficient operation and that the mobile phone's battery consumption is not increased. Currently, we have reached a level where the sleep service only draws a couple of percent per hour in use, which is the minimum goal even as new functions are added.
