Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Greener Solutions Group is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

We have previously resided in a shared office space where we have been unable to accurately record our energy usage or direct emissions, in 2021 we moved into our own building enabling us to plan our overall NetZero strategy and start collating information.

 

Baseline Year: 2021
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
Scope 3 emission are now being recorded; these will be added to our 2022 report.

Emissions reduction targets

 

In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.

We project that carbon emissions will decrease to 5 tCO2e by 2030 a reduction of 32.88%

  • Reduce travel where necessary and promote use of Video conferencing
  • Adopt a “buddy system” if travelling to an assessment/meeting, use one vehicle where possible
  • Use green procurement on all energy tariffs from next procurement cycle
  • Reduce use of printed material, where a online/digital version can be used
  • Reduce staff waste and appropriately recycle food/drinks packaging.
  • Remove throwaway stationary and opt for recycled goods or cartridge pens to reduce plastic waste.
  • Implement UNFCCC Race to Zero carbon accounting software
  • Implement UNFCCC Sustainable Development Goals
