TPP Carbon Reduction Plan
Commitment to achieving Net Zero
TPP is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050. TPP recognises and understands the importance of protecting the environment in which we operate. We are dedicated to minimising the impact that running our business has on the environment and we encourage our clients, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.
The Company will comply with all relevant legislative, regulatory and other environmental requirements in order to act in a socially responsible manner and we will strive to continuously improve our environmental performance to protect the environment and prevent pollution from our business activities.
Baseline Emissions Footprint
Baseline emissions are a record of those gases produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations
Our next calculations will take place in February 2023 in line with our Environmental Management System (EMS) cycle.
Emissions Reduction Targets
Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives
In May 2021 we were awarded our ISO 14001 certification that assesses and registers our Environmental Management System (EMS) against the ISO standard.
We use local businesses and suppliers where appropriate to boost local economy and reduce the carbon footprint of the good/services provided.
Employees are encouraged to walk and cycle to work, supported by our cycle to work scheme.
Our office space does not utilise air conditioning but instead uses a natural ventilation system pulling fresh air into the office from the outside.
We regularly donate old digital devices and recycle those that are no longer usable in order to combat ‘e-waste’.
Our cloud-based system aligns with the government’s Cloud First agenda and is a low carbon solution.
Our system is centrally hosted, using less power than a server per unit approach.
Carbon Reduction Projects
As part of our commitment to achieve Net Zero, we are promising to invest in a project, such as rainforest conservation, in order to offset the carbon emissions we do produce. However, we recognise that reducing our business’s carbon emissions wherever possible is the priority and so carbon offsetting projects will only ever be supplementary to our central commitment.
For those employees who must travel using a car, we are undertaking installation of Electric Vehicle Chargers on site and wish to encourage staff to drive Electric Vehicles by rolling out the electric car salary sacrifice scheme to all employees.
In the future, we hope to implement further measures such as increasing the amount of Electric Vehicle charging points and continuing to monitor our EMS and update when necessary.
Year reduction comparison from 2020 (820.78) to 2021 (563.78) is 257 Tonne Co2e.
We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 444 tCO2e by 2026. This is a reduction of 40%.
