Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Incremental Group is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

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.

Current emissions reporting

As above.

Emissions reduction targets

The baseline emissions were calculated for 2021, which was an exceptional year due to Covid.  Our offices were closed for most of this year, and we had travel restrictions in place during this period meaning our baseline is low.

However, in order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets. We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 718.7 tCO2e by 2026. This is a reduction of 10%.

Carbon reduction projects

We have already implemented the following specific environmental management measures and projects:

  • Updated our business travel policy to reduce flights and encourage more digital meetings.
  • Eliminated all company vehicles to reduce driving.
  • Introduced a hybrid working policy to reduce daily employee travel.
  • Ensured waste recycling facilities across all offices.
  • Introduced a digital by default policy which prohibits printing of documents in all but exceptional circumstances.

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

  • Repurposing and recycling of all laptops and phones
  • Achieving ISO14001 certification.
