Commitment to achieving Net Zero
Nimbus Digital & Technology Innovations Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.
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.
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 26,652.27 tCO2e by 2028. This is a reduction of 27% from our 2019/20 baseline (total emission data from 2021 – 2022 was during the Covid-19 pandemic and skews projected emissions data).
Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:
The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2019/20 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 22,312.39 tCO2e, a 61% reduction against the 2019/20 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.
Nimbus is an SME who rents its office space from Coventry University, the rooms we rent use Green energy to heat and light them, we started looking into how much energy we used within our rooms to see where savings could be made.
Many of our rooms were found to be underutilised and the decision was made to reduce the amount of office space by 63%. To enable this, we successfully adopted a hybrid way of working meaning our staff could work from home for the majority of the week. By reducing the amount of office space we were able to save 27.8% on our heating and lighting emissions.
With our hybrid ways of working employees are now commuting into the office once a week instead of five days per week, this has reduced their commute by 80%.
By reducing the use of our offices we are using fewer office supplies making our method of working more efficient and creating less waste. When staff are in the office we recycle all our paper, card, cans and any other recyclable waste into recycling bins placed throughout the office.
We offer staff a cycle to work scheme to help encourage people to cycle rather than drive to work where possible. We also have a company Car Share Scheme so any employees living in similar areas are able to travel to work locations together (where appropriate / relevant).
In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:
We are looking at purchasing new energy efficient laptops for all our staff with power saving and efficiency monitoring systems.
There are Certification Schemes such as ISO 14001 or PAS 2060 that we will look to join to help further reduce our carbon footprint
We will look further into Carbon Offsetting – looking at companies that invest in planting trees – or investing in future green energy technologies.
This Carbon Reduction Plan has been completed in accordance with PPN 06/21 and associated guidance and reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans.
Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting.
Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.
This Carbon Reduction Plan has been reviewed and signed off by the board of directors (or equivalent management body).
