CARBON REDUCTION PLAN

Supplier name: Neighbourly Lab

 

Publication date:  February 2024

 

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Neighbourly Lab is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2030. 

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: 2022/23

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.

This is our first year actively measuring our carbon emissions. We have not had systems in place to do so before and because of at home working during the pandemic.

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

 

We have created policies and recommendations to staff to reduce our Carbon emissions such as:

 

When travel is necessary, staff are actively encouraged to use public transport or cycle whenever possible either when commuting to the office or when travelling for work. Our London office is easily accessible via public transport and has secure bicycle storage.   

 

We use technology based systems. Invoicing, banking and official correspondence is all performed via email and online software, minimising the need for receipt or distribution of any printed material. We are also minimising our use of printed materials. 

 

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as: offsetting emissions which cannot be reduced to zero, such as electricity use.
