Becoming carbon neutral
Carbon neutrality is our goal to reduce the impact of any emissions we produce. It involves offsetting the impact of emissions with strategies to reduce our energy consumption.
We do that by implementing a wide range of environmental improvements, including:
- Transitioning to 100% electric company vehicles from September 2022
- Encouraging all employees to avoid unnecessary or extravagant use of resources
- Following the principles of the waste hierarchy
- Offering alternative promotional methods to printed materials, including electronic materials, using existing intranet sites, and screensavers
- Researching renewable technology at all owned offices by the end of 2022
- Switching all lights to LED in all owned offices by 2023/24
- Introducing dual flush across all sites' welfare facilities to save water
- Investigating replacing natural gas boilers used for heating and domestic hot water with low carbon alternatives
- Switching to 100% renewable electricity suppliers at contract renewal
- Reducing employee travel by offering phone or online support instead of face-to-face appointments
- Moving data storage to ‘the cloud’
- Seeking to understand how we can contribute to biodiversity net gain targets
By prioritising innovative carbon reduction strategies, we will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, 80% by 2035, and achieve Net Zero emissions by 2040.
This is in line with our formalised Carbon Reduction Plan, which assesses all organisations within the Peninsula Group.
