27% Group reduction renews Carbon Neutral International Standard
Linx, part of the NRL Group, is celebrating renewing their carbon neutral certification for a second year with a 27% reduction in their carbon footprint. Which sees their footprint per employee reduce by 0.84 tonnes.
The independently verified assessment is undertaken each year by One Carbon World and meets the Green House Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Standard. Reporting includes a reduction in scope 1 emissions of more than 77,443 CO2e, which measures direct greenhouse emissions such as fuel used in the transportation of goods and services. As well as a reduction in scope 3 emissions of 15,895 CO2e, which includes indirect emissions such as business travel and waste disposal.
The renewal success follows a continuous focus within the NRL Group to identify ways to reduce and eliminate carbon emissions across their engineering operations – which includes Workforce Solutions, Recruitment, Non-Destructive Testing to the civil nuclear industry and Rail maintenance contracting. Areas of focus included energy, fuel, water, commuting and business travel.
Colleagues across Linx and the NRL Group’s branches and operations also volunteered to form a Carbon Champion team, working together to continue to look at initiatives and changes that can be made to further reduce carbon emissions.
Through their partnership with One Carbon World, changes are made to reduce emissions – before carbon credits are purchased to invest in environmental initiatives across the globe and offset operations.
As the company moves into its third year operating under the standard, they will launch a new company benefits scheme for colleagues to lease electric vehicles through payroll deductions – making the cost of switching to electric more affordable.
Discussing the successful renewal, NRL Group’s CEO David Redmayne said,
