At CA Technologies, we continuously seek more efficient ways to run our business, from managing our energy use to developing and maintaining smart facilities and reducing our GHG emissions. We also aim to increase our operating efficiencies by forming strategic alliances with business partners.

Climate Change: Our Approach

Climate change continues to represent risks to assets and infrastructure across the globe. It is characterized by uncertainty regarding regulatory change and global instability. In response, societal needs are clear, and present opportunities in the low-carbon economy, improved health and well-being, productivity gains, and efficient, sustainable use of natural resources.

As a company, CA Technologies recognizes that we operate within a larger environment. Climate change and environmental considerations are integrated into our business strategy and operations, resulting in a robust and integrated climate reporting program.

CA is a proud signatory of the “We Are Still In” network, a broad cross-section of the U.S. economy that has assembled in pursuit of climate action, and to uphold the Paris agreement. We continue to seek ways to improve our own operations by optimizing devices and servers, gaining business efficiencies through automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and committing to the Science Based Targets initiative to set our emissions reduction targets in line with climate science.

 

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

We first started reporting our GHG emissions in 2006, and have focused even longer on reducing what our company emits. Since then, we have evolved our emissions reduction strategy from an operational efficiency focus to being a priority issue for CA Technologies and our stakeholders. In 2017, we reported a total of 47,841 metric tons of GHG emissions, approximately 50 percent lower than in 2006. The 50 percent reduction—or 47,347 metric tons—is equivalent to taking 10,139 passenger vehicles off the road for one year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2012, we established our first GHG reduction target of 35 percent of emissions by 2020, using a 2006 baseline. In 2015, we achieved that target. The urgency of climate action has not abated, and, as a result, we are committed to achieving our next GHG reduction target of 40 percent by 2030, from a 2015 baseline. This goal earned us a Climate Leadership Award for goal-setting, and achieving it would represent a total reduction of over 60 percent since first reporting our emissions in 2006.

Due primarily to our global office footprint and IT infrastructure, we view both Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions as within the boundaries of our operational control. Outside of our operational control, we continue to report Scope 3 emissions from commercial air and rail travel, and will continue to engage with our suppliers on their environmental footprints.

Improved accuracy of our data collection methodology led us to restate emissions data for 2015 and 2016.

Enabling Efficiency

We view software as an enabler of business efficiency. It enables our customers to easily optimize resources and minimize unnecessary expenditures and energy use. In addition to increasing efficiency, our software solutions improve IT availability, reduce risk, enhance agility and boost automation. These benefits enhance our customers’ ability to plan and prioritize their future business efforts.

CA software also helps ensure the optimal performance of Web and mobile applications and identifies bottlenecks through real-time reporting and comprehensive analytics. From products that enable energy supply-and-demand monitoring to those that streamline the end-user experience, CA is very much in the business of energy efficiency.

Smart Facilities

Because our facilities represent one of our largest environmental impacts, they are the focus of our efforts to enable efficiency. As leases come due, we are continually rightsizing our real estate footprint, and have already gone from 8 million square feet 10 years ago to under 3 million square feet today.

Green Buildings

Reducing energy use reduces CO2 emissions. We have begun shutting down over 3,000 devices, including servers, storage and networks—work that will continue through 2018. These steps alone will eliminate an estimated half-ton of CO2 emissions on an annual basis. We also continue to use automation and machine learning to uncover hidden efficiencies by intelligently monitoring demand and usage patterns.

We continue to drive more automation in multiple areas, to evolve from standard automation to the realm of robotic process automation (RPA)—including some machine learning to drive decisions and make the automation more intelligent. Our dedicated solutions for Service Orchestration, Workload Automation and Release Automation enable complete end-to-end automation.

We also employ more conventional methods to enable efficiency:

North America

  • Received Energy Star designation in Framingham and Islandia
  • Promoted awareness of Earth Day by giving out 500 saplings for CA employees to plant
  • Increased temperatures in lab environments to save on cooling use 
  • Continued utilization of LED lighting, implementing it in the cafeteria and sidewalks 
  • Achieved recognition by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP) as a “Business Leader” at NEEP’s 2016 Summit
  • Worked with software partners to build a 360-degree view of Compliance, Energy and Carbon, Corporate Social Responsibility and Supply Chain information
  • Transferred many business applications to the Cloud 
  • Repurposed our uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and air conditioning (AC) systems

India

In India, we are working with a global consulting, engineering and commissioning firm for the built environment, to analyze our India infrastructure and how it compares to Western standards . These measures, which we undertook in 2017, include the following improvements:

  • Upgraded Bangalore office to LED lighting, with Hyderabad, Mumbai and Dili scheduled for this year
  • Replaced AC units with R22 to R410A
  • Retro-commissioned Hyderabad with reinsulated piping and upgraded control strategies
  • Replaced oversized UPS units in Hyderabad with newer, more efficient units, providing energy savings

Milan

  • Moved from owned building just outside Milan, where we had been for 25 years, to leased space in central Milan
  • Retrofitted the 1966 building to a high standard of efficiency, earning LEED Platinum certification
  • As a result of the move, drastically reduced the amount of space we’re using, cutting down on energy use

Our procurement strategy for energy includes power purchase agreements (PPAs) from renewable sources along with renewable energy certificates (RECs) from a commercial electricity supplier. These RECs are generated from wind farms and are verified and certified by Green-e Energy, the nation’s leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy. Green-e Energy sets consumer protection and environmental standards for renewable electricity products.

Water Management

We get water data for 13 sites globally. Our main uses of water are for domestic purposes, including landscaping at large locations. Outside of domestic water use, the closed-loop water systems in our data centers minimize water use. We continue to find ways to divert rainwater for landscaping needs. For example, we reclaim close to 100 percent of rainwater from surfaces at our Hyderabad, India, facility. Also in Hyderabad, where there is no public sewer, businesses have their own sewer-treatment plants that handle all wastewater within their building systems. At our facility, we treat wastewater and reuse it in landscape sprinkler systems. In 2017, we also changed the way we maintain cooling towers in Hyderabad to eliminate the need to completely drain the towers each week, resulting in greatly reduced water use.

Strategic Partnerships

EDF Climate Corps Fellows. Since 2010, CA has partnered with EDF Climate Corps to host graduate students in one of our locations, hosting a total of 12 Fellows to date and being named one of only two Climate Corps Gold Hosts. Each year, CA’s Corporate Social Responsibility team works with our Facilities teams to identify potential projects and areas of improvement. We are then joined by an EDF Fellow whose depth of knowledge and background suit our specific project. EDF Fellows are also provided with technical training and tools to help CA further hone our operational efficiency.

In the summer of 2017, Mayank Saraswat supported CA’s global mission to improve its environmental performance and energy efficiency. Mayank is a master’s degree candidate at the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Delaware and serves there as an energy efficiency auditor and research assistant.

Solution
Mayank audited our Hyderabad facility virtually, by reviewing building blueprints and utility data and communicating with the local team via voice and video calls, unearthing several energy savings opportunities. He focused his attention on low-cost recommendations, which allowed him to eliminate any financial barriers for implementation. This approach helped him optimize the existing energy-intensive UPS and HVAC system, while making changes to the billing structure at no upfront cost. Saraswat also looked into upgrading existing CFLs with LEDs to increase the potential energy savings.

Potential Impact

Over time, Mayank’s recommendations could help CA save $180,000 annually in energy costs, reduce annual energy consumption by almost 1.3 million kWh, and avoid over 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. With these proposals, we can potentially reduce our global emissions by 2 percent and advance our sustainability goals.

Partnering with universities to drive innovation. CA’s Strategic Research team, based in Barcelona, works to strengthen relationships with research communities to enable and promote innovation.

sRide Carpooling Usage

(by number of rides and distance traveled)

Green Carpooling. sRide is an app that makes it easy to find safe and approachable carpooling partners. Carpooling reduces traffic congestion, fuel consumption and carbon emissions. In 2017, CA Technologies Hyderabad went from completing 7,327 shared rides covering 9,957 kilometers the previous year to 44,508 rides covering 92,345 kilometers. This carpooling effort avoided 18,469 kilograms of CO2, the equivalent of planting 879 trees.

Supply Chain Management

We are proud to use the power of collaboration to work with our vendors to ensure that they are committed to sustainable, ethical practices. We continually monitor related issues throughout our supply chain, and determine the material impact, if any, of all our suppliers. We require compliance with our Partner Code of Conduct, which defines our expectations as a partner, and we are a signatory to the UN Global Compact, a corporate sustainability initiative that supports human rights, labor standards and anti-corruption measures as well as protection of the environment. In addition, our supplier agreements contain human rights clauses.

We also require our U.S. office products supplier to follow strict guidelines for FSC-certified paper. Outside the U.S., an independent third-party agency performs due diligence for the on-boarding of CA Technologies partners. The third party performs background checks on both individuals and firms, following Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) requirements. This vetting helps us clearly understand those we are doing business with and the risks that may be associated with our business relationships.

Going forward, we will also continue to assess and evolve our Enterprise Supplier Management program, a solution that helps CA Technologies manage our major suppliers around reputational risk, regulatory penalties and customer impact. This program is closely aligned with state, federal and international measurement standards for public reporting and helps us maximize the value and reduce the risk of using third parties.
