TEKenable is creating 10 new jobs with the establishment of a dedicated environmental and social governance (ESG) practice.
ESG is a critical pillar of Dublin tech firm TEKenable’s growth strategy.
The ESG Practice will provide ESG consulting services to TEKenable customers, especially around the areas of data collection and reporting, carbon reduction and return on investment.
It will also provide services to TEKenable itself, ensuring ESG is integrated into TEKenable’s customers’ purpose, governance, strategy, decision-making, risk management, and accountability reporting across all divisions of the company and will work closely with them to ensure that understanding and alignment of sustainability and ESG priorities are embraced throughout the organisation.
Established in 2002, TEKenable employs over 160 people. The business recently revealed plans to downsize its office in Dublin to around one-third of the size as a result of the success of remote working.
“We have developed TEKenable’s ESG services to accelerate our customers on their sustainable transformation journey,” said Nick Connors, Group CEO, TEKenable.
“Through the use of cloud-based technologies to enable secure data storage and seamless interactions to drive sustainable decisions across our customer’s operations and stakeholders, we will help them accelerate the transformation of their organisations and value chains.”
The business has partnered with EcoVadis, the world’s trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, in its quest to use technology to help achieve its objectives and help organisations improve their environmental, social and ethical performance faster and with Irish ESG consultancy BluePlanet.
TEKenable delivers digital services through Low Code platforms to medium and large-scale enterprises in Ireland, the UK, Spain, Hungary and the UAE. The company is Irish owned and is committed to transforming forward-thinking public and private sector businesses into fully digital businesses in the cloud.
The ESG Practice will be headed by a sustainable industry expert with a long track record of handling the interests of clients, stakeholders, regulators and partners. The new positions include cloud engineering, data and analytics and consulting and will be fulfilled in 2024.
“TEKenable is committed to helping clients move from sustainability and climate commitments to action,” adds Peter Rose, Group CTO, TEKenable.
“We will do so by working with organisations to create a transformation plan as well as helping drive collaboration across a broader ecosystem – of suppliers, clients and customers, policymakers, and alliance partners across industries. Sustainable IT can lead the way while delivering service enhancements and cost savings for a business.”
