Carbon reduction plan

Supplier name: Visku

Publication date: 15 April 2024

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Visku is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2035.

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 – Publication date: 1 December 2021

Additional details relating to the baseline emissions calculations

Baseline emissions have been calculated using a two-month sample base of pre-Covid activity to generate anticipated historical emissions as these have not previously been recorded. The impact of Covid on a service-based Group will have had a significant but un-sustainable reducing impact in recent months. Although unsustainable in the short term, we are looking at the carbon reducing changes that occurred and establishing means to continue adopting workable practices around these.

We do not believe there to be any scope 1 emissions directly relevant to the activities of the Company and therefore rated as nil. Carbon emitting activities occur predominantly around scope 2 & 3. Items included within these scopes are:

Scope 2 – Office electricity usage.

Scope 3 – Business mileage and employee commuting.

Emissions reduction targets

In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.

We project that carbon emissions will continue to decrease over the next three years to 50 tCO2e by 2026. This is a reduction of 49.8% from the base line.

The Company has adopted monthly reporting of Emissions it is to monitor and drive delivery on the above targets.

Carbon reduction projects

A carbon reduction action plan detailing initiatives and targets was presented internally to the board in March 2022. From this internal plan, this report is updated annually with the latest reporting period figures and further information around the plan.

Completed carbon reduction initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2021 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 23.47 tCO2e, a 23.58%ge reduction against the 2021 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

Office move in April 2023:

  • BREEAM (code for a sustainable built environment) certificate BREEM-0090-4250 – score of 74.7% – rate Excellent
  • Building CO2 kgCO2/m2.annum – 10.8 (certified November 2022 (BRUKL output – Building Regs)
  • EPC A+ rating
  • Solar panels now commissioned March 2024 – to power all electric requirements
  • Building has LED and PIR lighting controls throughout
  • Multiple Electric car charging points established for staff and customers to use ( with grid to add many more as demand increases)
  • Rain water directed in use for the toilet flush system.

Other completed actions:

  • All archives now systemised, and office is 98% paperless
  • Paper recycling in place, and general recycling on office waste
  • Hybrid working – having reduced journeys into the office, and many remote working members of the team, whilst keeping the balance for staff welfare and connection.

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:

  • Introducing benefits to employees, such as access to electric vehicles via salary sacrifice, that reduce carbon emissions
  • The off-setting of any carbon emissions with a tree planting scheme linked to new orders and customers.

Declaration and sign off

This Carbon Reduction Plan has been completed in accordance with PPN 06/21 and associated guidance and reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans.

Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting.

Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.

This Carbon Reduction Plan has been reviewed and signed off by the board of directors (or equivalent management body).
