How to reduce your footprint
based on your scope

Solar panels

Transition to Cleaner Energy Sources


Involves shifting from fossil fuels to renewable sources like solar and wind power.


Transitioning from fossil fuel-powered equipment, machinery, and vehicles to electric alternatives can eliminate direct emissions associated with combustion.

Renewable Energy Adoption

Installing on-site renewable energy systems like solar panels or wind turbines can generate clean electricity to power operations, reducing the need for fossil fuels.

Carbon Capture, Storage & Offsetting

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

A method that captures CO2 emissions from power plants and industrial processes, then stores it underground to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change.

Carbon Offsetting

This is where we can help. Offset part or all of your carbon footprint by investing in 3rd party verified projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.

Energy Efficiency Measures


Optimize energy consumption and reduce waste to lower emissions associated with electricity generation

Boost your energy efficiency with these valuable tips
  • Conduct energy audits to identify areas of high energy consumption and inefficiencies.

  • Improve insulation and weather sealing to minimize heat loss or gain.

  • Install programmable thermostats and smart controls to optimize heating, cooling, and ventilation systems.

  • Upgrade to energy-efficient LED bulbs (low impact).

Wind turbines - a renewable energy source

Renewable Energy Procurement


Buy renewable energy to cut reliance on fossil fuels, lowering Scope 2 emissions.

What is Renewable Energy Procurement?
  • This involves sourcing electricity from renewable energy providers or installing on-site renewable energy systems, such as solar panels or wind turbines.

  • Organizations have the option to procure renewable energy directly from wind, solar, hydro, or geothermal sources. This is accomplished through power purchase agreements (PPAs), where businesses buy renewable electricity directly from developers or generators. By engaging in renewable energy procurement, companies can guarantee that the power they use is environmentally friendly, with minimal or no carbon emissions.

Offsetting Emissions

Quick impact

Compensate for emissions by supporting environmental projects or purchasing carbon offsets.

Purchasing offsets

Whilst investigating options for sourcing renewable energy, you can still make immediate impact to reduce your footprint by offsetting your Scope 2 emissions through 3rd party verified carbon capture and offset projects.

Supply chain engagement

Supply Chain Engagement and Sustainable Sourcing


Collaborating with suppliers to promote environmentally responsible practices and ethical sourcing.

Supplier Engagement

Encouraging suppliers to measure and reduce their emissions, adopt sustainable practices, and prioritize low-carbon alternatives can help mitigate indirect emissions associated with producing and transporting goods and services.

Sustainable Sourcing

Businesses can prioritize suppliers and partners who demonstrate strong environmental performance and sustainability commitments, like sourcing materials and products with lower carbon footprints.

Transport and Logistics Optimization


Reduce fuel consumption and minimize environmental impact in transportation activities.

Logistics Optimization

To cut emissions from transportation, consider smart planning like finding the best routes, combining shipments, and using eco-friendly transport like trains or ships when you can. You can also lower emissions by using green vehicle fleets, like electric or hybrid cars, for company transportation.

Last-Mile Delivery

Employ route planning software, offer flexible delivery windows, and establish local warehouses to reduce travel distances. Additionally, using technology for tracking and communication, alternative eco-friendly transportation options, and efficient returns management can help enhance the efficiency and customer experience in the final stage of product delivery.

Circular Economy and Product Lifecycle Management


Focus on reducing waste, maximizing resource efficiency, and promoting recycling and reuse.

What is Circular Economy and Product Lifecycle Management?

Embracing circular economy principles and designing products for longevity, reuse, and recycling can help reduce emissions. This involves using recycled or renewable materials, minimizing waste generation, and designing products that are repairable, upgradable, or easily disassembled for recycling.

Extended Producer Responsibility

A policy approach that holds manufacturers responsible for the environmental impact of their products throughout their lifecycle, including disposal and recycling.

Product Service Systems

Shifting from a product-focused approach to service-oriented business models, such as product leasing or sharing.

Lightbulb - ideas for sustainability

Scope 1: Improve Energy Efficiency

Implement measures to optimize energy use, upgrade equipment, and reduce energy waste to minimize direct emissions from onsite processes.

Scope 2: Onsite Renewable Energy Generation

Install renewable energy infrastructure such as solar panels or wind turbines on-site to generate clean electricity. By producing renewable energy directly, businesses can reduce reliance on the grid and lower their indirect emissions associated with purchased electricity.

Collaborating with stakeholders on sustainability issues

Scope 3: Engage with Suppliers

Collaborate with suppliers to adopt eco-friendly practices, such as sourcing sustainable materials and improving energy efficiency. Focus on reducing waste, promote recycling and reuse, and engage employees to adopt sustainable practices.
