The advantage of Backbone Connect was that they could offer the same access to their excellent customer service for both us and our tenants.We knew if we were going to move towards offering our clients an 'On Demand' approach to building connectivity, it had to be with a company that excelled at customer service.
Working with Backbone ensures that for our tenants, those days of sitting there frustrated because the line keeps dropping are completely gone.
Part of making the building attractive to tenants is the task of procuring fibre into the building for our tenants. It can be a long and painful process and it has always been a frustration. We thought 'wouldn't it be good to do this better? ' and when we found Backbone Connect.
ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system. Designed for any type of organization, regardless of its activity or sector, it can provide assurance that environmental impact is being measured and improved. Backbone Connect’s policies are all in line with ISO14000...
An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) transparently and scientifically describes the environmental impacts of a system, product, or service. EPDs are validated by a third party and are based on Life cycle assessments (LCA), providing information on the environmental impacts of systems, services, and products, throughout the entire life cycle.
Backbone Connect’s EDP certified solution...
More than four-fifths of the world’s largest companies are unlikely to make the reductions necessary to help meet the target of limiting global temperature rises to well below 2⁰C of pre-industrialized levels by 2050.
By taking the Pledge to Net Zero, we’re committing to taking on a leadership role in the transition to a Net Zero carbon economy. Backbone Connect has agreed to:
Set and commit to delivering a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C (encouraged) or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum.
Publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against this target each year.
Publish one piece of research/thought-leadership each year on practical steps to delivering an economy in line with climate science and support of net zero carbon.
Ecologi facilitates the funding of carbon offset projects around the world, with a mission to reduce 50% of global CO2 emissions by 2040 and responsibly plant billions of trees every year. To do this, they call on individuals and businesses to take action.
We recognise that although we install reusable and sustainably sourced fibre in one hit, installations are not carbon neutral. To combat this, Backbone Connect has partnered with Ecologi to offset our carbon emissions. For every new Connected Building fitted, we will offset the carbon emitted during the installation by contributing the equated funding to a carbon offset project.
The Backbone Connect Go Green Team is a group made up of employees from different areas of the business, committed to promoting a greener and more sustainable office.
The committee is responsible for evaluating our current office practices and finding more sustainable solutions. For example, finding ways to reduce our energy consumption, using greener cleaning products, or finding eco-friendly suppliers and vendors
Sustainable solutions not only help owners reduce their carbon footprint and earn certifications, but help space stand out in the saturated commercial real estate market.
Landlords who can help occupiers achieve their carbon reduction commitments have a clear advantage.
Our Connecting the Dots report found that 69% of tenants would be willing to pay more for a sustainable office and that 97% of tenants view sustainability as an important consideration when choosing office space over the next three to five years.
The Connected Building solution supports you and your tenants in following a true reduce, reuse, and recycle model.
The Connected Buildings solution uses reusable, sustainably sourced materials and reduces the number of items and devices installed and the impact of repeat visits to provide ethernet fibre in a building, compared to traditional deployment. It also reduces power consumption by having more efficient devices, serving multiple customers
Rather than dispose of all materials required to deliver a traditional ethernet fibre Internet service to a tenant, our solution allows each new occupier to re-use the basement enablement equipment, riser fibre, and lateral fibre cables, all of which can be relocated to another site and re-used if required.
Once installed, our solution serves many tenants for over 10 years
If a Connected Building installation must be removed, we seek to re-use as many items as possible (provided they are fit for purpose).
When devices and hardware reach end of life, we send those materials to be recycled. Our WEEE recycling partner processes electronic equipment and can separate the devices into constituent parts and recover/separate all the raw materials, saving the material from landing in landfills.
We also actively procure our hardware and consumables from suppliers who use recyclable packaging and low-carbon delivery methods.
Being EPD certified, our Connected Buildings solution helps you in gaining a BREEAM certification and earns points towards Mat02 and Mat01.
