EAS appointed a third-party sustainability consultancy to calculate our carbon emissions. We utilised our operational data from 2022. From here on, 2022 will be our ‘Baseline’ year for reporting. 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.
The decision to record our GHG emissions marks the first step in our decarbonisation journey, on the way to becoming a more sustainable organisation. We will continue to report and disclose our carbon emissions.
Our baseline footprint was 50.2 tCO2e. This can be broken down across the three reporting scopes as follows:
- Scope 1: 0.1 tCO2e
- Scope 2: 3.8 tCO2e
- Scope 3: 46.3 tCO2e
We are now working to develop decarbonisation targets and investigating the feasibility of joining the UN’s Race to Net Zero. We will publish any pledge or targets set as they become available.
“This is our first step to becoming a more sustainable, lower carbon organisation and we are committed to become a net zero business. We hope others join us on this journey.”
