We are pleased to announce that the Sureserve Group has achieved carbon neutrality for our Scope 1 and 2 emissions and Scope 3 Business Travel and Waste, for all UK operations for the financial reporting year, 1st October 2020 – 30th September 2021.
Working with the Carbon Trust, we have taken steps to calculate the Group’s carbon footprint and satisfactorily offset this to achieve carbon neutrality in accordance with PAS 2060.
PAS 2060 is the internationally recognised specification for carbon neutrality and sets out requirements for quantification, reduction and the offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for organisations such as the Sureserve Group.
This is another step in our journey to reduce the total carbon footprint of our activities, and underpins our commitment to developing carbon reduction goals and driving improvements and initiatives across our businesses. Our fleet of zero-emission vehicles continues to grow, with strong infrastructural support through energy partnerships and the installation of a network of charging points. Energy audits of our offices now allow us to improve efficiencies as well as deliver yet more carbon reducing measures. We are working towards achieving zero waste-to landfill by 2030 and are intent on delivering annual mandatory environmental training for 100% of our workforce, increasing employee awareness and engagement with energy efficiency and carbon reduction practices.
We are committed to on-going carbon neutrality, which sits hand in hand with our carbon reduction goals delivered via our responsible business strategy. These are part of the wider delivery of our ESG targets and ensure we continue to be a supplier of choice for social housing energy services, and a responsible partner in communities across the UK.
