Reducing greenshouse gas emissions
Recognising the climate emergency, we are committed to taking action. We have set an ambition reduction target of 25% emission reductions by 2025, based on our 2020 baseline.
Recognising that 95% of our emissions are fuel related we are transitioning to a low carbon fleet. To help drive this transition we have adopted an electric first approach to purchasing vehicles and plant. Our Electric Fleet currently includes 1 BeV Van; 4 BeV Cars; 1 Plugin Hybrid Car; 1 Hybrid Car we also have a number of electric bikes and a considerable number of electric tools and equipment that has replaced fuel plant, such as leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, weed eaters and pole saws. We are also currently upgrading our oldest fleet to more fuel-efficient lower emitting vehicles.
We have been measuring the carbon footprint of our business operations with Ekos since 2020. By understanding the emissions profile our business operations, we can start to strategically reduce them.
