Carbon Reduction Plan

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:
Scope 1516
Scope 225
Scope 3291  
Total Emissions832

 *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.

No.Carbon Reduction OpportunityResult since Baseline
1Drivers recommended to switch to EV vehicles when practicableSome employees have moved to hybrid as a stop-gap until full EV is possible 
2All-terrain climate weather tyres introduced to improve vehicle MPG.On all new vehicles and when tyres require replacing. Process on-going. 
3Reduction in business mileage.1/3 reduction in mileage from 2019. 
4Reduce overall business travelMost activities now online meetings wherever practicable.  Air travel and train travel reduced by 75%
