Reduced climate footprint

Sleep Cycle's ambition is to minimize our impact on the environment and climate. By initially mapping the emissions that our operations emit, we will in the next stage be able to set goals and develop a plan for reducing emissions over time.

Through its digital operations, Sleep Cycle has a limited impact on the climate and environment. We are aware 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 products and services. As we form a clearer picture of our impact on the environment and climate, we also lay a foundation for the next phase of setting goals and activities that contribute to reducing our emissions.


The environmental impact of Sleep Cycle's business activities is mainly made up of purchases and travel for daily operational running, as well as the consumption of electricity and heat in our office premises. We primarily focus on what we can directly influence to reduce our environmental impact, for example by making conscious choices when purchasing materials and services, and by using trains and public transport for business trips whenever possible. In the first quarter of 2023, the head office in Gothenburg moved to new office premises in a BREEAM-certified property. This means that for example, the building's energy use, choice of building materials and location in relation to public transport all inform how the property's environmental performance is assessed. As tenants, additional value is created by a good indoor environment including lighting, acoustics and air quality as the premises are designed to have a positive impact on well-being, health and productivity. Sleep Cycle uses cloud-based data storage for the operation of our sleep services, from suppliers who are actively engaged in sustainability work by minimizing emissions and energy use.


Our goal in every development project and when updating our sleep service is to ensure efficient operations. From Sleep Cycle's perspective, efficient operations mean minimizing the battery consumption of the mobile phone. At present, we have reached a level where the app only draws a few percent per hour during use. As new features are added, the goal is to keep battery consumption at this level or lower.
