Commitment to achieving Net Zero

SW Locums Ltd 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: 2022/2023
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
SW Locums is a totally remote company. Since our conception in 2009, we have strived to have a minimal impact to the environment as possible. We utilise cloud services, communicating and supplying or product via electronic means and the telephone. All physical documentation is scanned to our servers, securely shredded and then safely incinerated or composted where appropriate. In 2023 SW Locums baseline calculation includes all our measurable scope 1 emissions based upon the use of fuel/electricity consumption on site. For scope 2 and 3 we include vehicle for company travel, train travel and the postage of annual gifts for staff. This was estimated against the approximate annual mileage and the figures generated by the external organisations used to distribute products. With figures generated from Royal Mail and National Rail 0.0715 kgCO2e/pass mile

Emissions reduction targets

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

The introduction of Solar panels to provide charging of the electric vehicle and electricity to the business premises to reduce our levels significantly. We are looking into ways we can store the electricity produced by the solar panels for future use with the installation of a power wall.

Encourage staff to increase use of online methods of communication including online meetings.

 

We have purchased an electric vehicle for company use.

 

 

 

We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to zeroCO2e by 2030.
