Our carbon reduction plan

We are a carbon neutral organisation.

Cordis Bright is committed to actively managing and reducing our environmental impact, with a specific emphasis on carbon reduction.

We take this commitment seriously and are ambitious in terms of what we want to achieve. For a number of years now, we have been carbon neutral in relation scope 1 and scope 2 emissions.

More recently we have focused our attention on more rigorously measuring our scope 3 emissions. Previously, this was based only on business travel. From today, our carbon plan also includes staff commuting. Our calculations are based on the UK Government's GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting (2023). We estimate our total scope 3 emissions to be 6.6 tCO2e per year, made up of 1.48 tCO2e for business travel and 5.12tCO2e for commuting. We have a long-term aspiration to also include carbon emissions from remote working.

In terms of future targets, we are committed to keeping scope 1 and scope 2 emissions at zero. Up to 2030, we expect scope 3 emissions to increase as we expand the remit of our calculations. After 2030, we want to see a 10% reduction in the first five years, mainly achieved via low carbon technologies being embedded in public transport infrastructure.

In the meantime, we will continue to off-set our scope 3 emissions using a Gold Standard accredited off-setting scheme.

If you would like to know more about how we calculate our carbon emissions or the steps we are taking to be more environmentally friendly, please contact Colin Horswell, Managing Director.
