Carbon Reduction Plan
Supplier name: Assurity Systems Limited
Publication date: 30th September 2021
Commitment to achieving Net Zero
Assurity Systems has committed to achieving net zero by 2050, in line with the UK Government’s net zero target.
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. Baseline Year: 2021
|Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
|The current baseline includes activities for 2021. One Scope 3 Subsets included which are emissions from business travel in vehicles not owned or controlled by Assurity Systems have been included within the baseline.
|Baseline year emissions:
*Assurity Systems have not previously reported on additional Scope 3 emissions as only a small subset of Scope 3 emissions is required under the current legal reporting requirements. Additionally, due to the nature of our business, the emissions from downstream transportation and distribution are not applicable.
Current Emissions Reporting
Assurity Systems established a baseline in 2021 as detailed above.
As a minimum, this CRP will be reviewed and updated annually with any significant changes or new developments added, which may help Assurity Systems further reduce its carbon footprint.
Emissions Reduction Targets
Assurity Systems wants to set ambitious carbon reduction targets to enable net zero emissions by 2050.
Therefore, Assurity Systems is committed to establishing reduction targets in line with the latest climate science. Therefore, we are working on setting our targets through the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi).
This will ensure that our carbon reduction plan will reduce GHG emissions in line with a 1.5oC warming pathway, against the 2021 baseline, verified by the SBTi.
Carbon Reduction Projects
The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2021 baseline has been established. No.
|Carbon Reduction Opportunity
|Result since Baseline
|Drivers recommended to switch to EV vehicles when practicable
|Some employees have moved to hybrid as a stop-gap until full EV is possible
