Carbon Reduction Plan

Supplier name: PMS (Instruments) Ltd

Publication date: 06 February 2024

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

PMS (Instruments) Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2045.

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: 2023
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
We have not previously assessed or reported any emissions so 2023 is designated as our first reporting period and our Baseline.

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 decrease over the next five years to 11.44 tCO2e by 2029. This is a reduction of 20%

Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:

Carbon Reduction Projects & Targets

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2023 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 11331tCO2e, a 50%ge reduction against the 2023 baseline.

A Solar Photovoltaic System has been installed which it is estimated will save 55 tonnes of CO2 over 20 years. In addition in order to reduce our Scope 2 emissions we aim to source all of our electricity from 100% renewable resources from next contract renewal.

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as replacing our natural Gas boiler with a heat pump at the end of its serviceable life.

We will maintain internal communications with staff to emphasise the importance of the Net Zero project which will include awareness and engagement in energy saving practices.

We will work with suppliers to understand their own emissions encouraging them to reduce their own emissions and provide feedback for areas of improvement.

We will continue to recycle all cardboard waste from office and warehouse operations. In 2023 31.8% of our waste was recycled and we aim to minimize paper use age through digitalization and electronic communication.
