Delta-Q Technologies Progresses Towards its Net-Zero Emissions Goal

Dec. 27, 2023
As Delta-Q continues to redefine the landscape of battery charging solutions, its commitment to sustainability remains at the forefront of its business decision-making.

Delta-Q Technologies, a ZAPI GROUP company and leader in providing battery charging solutions, announced it has achieved the goals of its Scope 1 and Scope 2 net-zero emissions targets. As Delta-Q continues to redefine the landscape of battery charging solutions, its commitment to sustainability remains at the forefront of its business decision-making.

As outlined by Canada’s Greening Government Strategy, Scope 1 includes direct greenhouse emissions that come from sources that an organization directly owns or controls. Delta-Q addressed its Scope 1 emissions with a new, state-of-the-art headquarters building. 

Delta-Q’s new global headquarters enables the company to hyper-focus on driving sustainability from within—utilizing electric heat pumps, ultra-efficient LED lighting, smart building controls and enhanced insulation. Fossil fuels are no longer consumed for heating or powering any systems in the building resulting in zero direct carbon emissions.

Scope 2 emissions from Delta-Q are now also near zero. This scope includes all carbon emissions from purchased energy sources. As Delta-Q’s systems are now entirely powered by BC Hydro's 98-percent emissions-free hydroelectric grid, the new facility effectively eliminates Scope 2 climate impacts.

“Our team is thrilled to achieve these milestones,” said Conway Hui, chair of the Delta-Q employee-led Sustainability Working Group. “At Delta-Q, we believe that sustainability and business growth go hand in hand. We hope our technology and steadfast focus on driving the EV transition will also lead the way toward an all-electric tomorrow.” 

After successfully reaching its near net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions reduction goals, Delta-Q turns its focus to the large task of reducing Scope 3 emissions, which are generated from third-party sources such as suppliers, contract manufacturers and transportation providers. Delta-Q plans to address this admittedly complex area by collaborating with and educating partners across the value chain to enact genuine change.

“While we are happy with our progress to date, we aren’t satisfied and recognize reaching net-zero emissions is a journey,” said Conway. “Our focus now is addressing Scope 3 indirect emissions and enabling our OEM customers’ accelerating need to shift from internal combustion to electric drive systems. This is integral to our core purpose and organizational values.”
