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:

  • side arrowReducing employee travel by offering phone or online support instead of face-to-face appointments
  • side arrowMoving data storage to ‘the cloud’

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.
