Our Environmental Impact
Our commitment to be Net Zero by 2050.
At Six Degrees we are aware of our impact on the planet, and we have committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050 at the latest.
In order to progress towards Net Zero, we have set carbon reduction targets for the 7-year period to 2030. During this time, targets will be set for the remaining period to ensure Net Zero will be achieved by our target date.
Women in Technology
We have an active Women in Tech group that is committed to championing the cause of women working in STEM.
At Six Degrees, our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is more than just lip service. We genuinely believe that everything we are able to achieve has been made possible by the invaluable contributions of women in the field of technology – their expertise, their innovation, and their diverse perspectives.
“The women I have worked with over the years have inspired me hugely, and I firmly believe that they have played a major role in my success. We can help inspire each other to be stronger, whether that is through informal mentoring or being part of Women in Tech initiatives. Of course, men have an important part to play, too, in bringing about equality – from finding out how they can best support Women in Tech initiatives to changing the ‘tech bro’ workplace culture into an inclusive one that embraces diversity.”Caroline Mantle Strategic Alliance Manager and Co-Chair of Women in Tech Network
