Commitment to achieving net zero

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.

Baseline Year: 2019
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
Baseline year emissions:
Scope 1259.9882  
Scope 239.58  
Scope 3 (Included Sources)130.054  
Total Emissions429.62    

Current Emissions Reporting

Reporting Year: 2023

In order to continue our progress to achieving net zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets set out in the graph below.

Having currently more than met our target emission reduction for the next five years, to 2028, our projected fall in 58.76 tCO2e has already been delivered. This is a reduction of 13.67 %

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2019 baseline. The carbon emissions reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 58.76 tCO2e, a 13.67% reduction against the 2019 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

Our completed carbon reduction projects include:

  • Achieving and maintaining ISO 14001.
  • The installation of LED lighting.
  • The introduction of electric, hybrid and ULEZ and CAZ compliant ICE vehicles.
