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 over the next five years to 30000 tCO2e by 2028. This is a reduction of 19.8% This will primarily be achieved by replacing our desktop computers as they are renewed with efficient laptops and transitioning to a hybrid working environment.

Carbon Reduction Projects

Our next office upgrade will be to a greener premise utilising more renewable energy sources.
