This mission statement sets the strategic direction for Sonardyne to achieve carbon neutrality by the end of 2025 and outlines existing and planned initiatives to fulfil this ambition.
Our Commitment to Carbon Neutrality
Sonardyne recognises the need for sustainable use of energy to mitigate climate impact and degradation of the environment for the preservation of future generations. As part of our five-year strategic plan, Sonardyne is aiming to become carbon neutral by the end of 2025 in accordance with PAS 2060.

• Installation of three photovoltaic arrays in March 2020 – 1,300 panels producing 533 kW of power
• Implementation of ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System
• Upgrades to electrical infrastructure and building fabric since 2018
• Installation of Building Management Systems
• Procurement of Certified Renewable Energy for the period October 2019 – September 2023
Our Future Initiatives
Future planned initiatives to achieve our aim of carbon neutrality by the end of 2025 include:
• Adopting PAS 2060 as a framework to verify carbon neutrality status
• Utilising all onsite solar generation and safeguarding uninterrupted power supply by investment in power (battery) storage
• Improving understanding and calculation of carbon footprint
