Commitment to achieving Net Zero
Smart/tasking is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2040 or sooner.
Baseline Emissions Footprint
Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.
Emissions reduction targets
In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.
· Purchasing only EV / Hybrid company vehicles from 4th January 2022
· All staff will be encouraged to make a conscious decision before business travel, as to whether a virtual meeting would suffice, and where travel is considered necessary for; public transport / or vehicle share (when travelling in a group), to be the primary consideration.
· International flights now require a business justification and director authorisation required prior to booking / travel.
· Future commercial premises must be able to provide sufficient EV charging capabilities for our staff to be able to commute to work via an electric vehicle.
We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 73 tCO2e by 2026. This is a reduction of 17.9 %.
Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:
