Westcon-Comstor's SVP of Global Operations Kevin Brzezinski (pictured) has also been appointed to the newly created position of Chief Sustainability Officer.
In his dual role Brzezinski takes overall responsibility for the company’s efforts to minimise its carbon footprint and environmental impact – including working across the supply chain with technology vendors and partners to create a more sustainable IT channel.
Westcon-Comstor aims to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050, a target validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The SBTi also validated Westcon-Comstor’s objective to achieve a 50% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions (and a 25% reduction in Scope 3 emissions) by 2030, while ensuring that 80% of its suppliers have science-based emission reduction targets by 2025.
The company also aims to meet 100% of its electricity needs worldwide through renewable sources by 2030, and recently published its second Responsible Business report containing a breakdown of its global carbon emissions for its 2023 financial year.
Brzezinski said: “We’ve built up a strong ESG team in recent years and we're doubling down on sustainability and embedding a data-driven approach to minimising our environmental impact.”
CEO David Grant added: "We felt it was important to formally give sustainability a C suite-level role.”
