Towards Net Zero Carbon4_pointing-man-istock-275-195 - Peter Hawtin - peterh

Has your organisation started to work towards the net zero carbon economy?

Scientists tell us we need to act urgently and there is much that you could be doing immediately to identify the risks and opportunities in your organisation and to develop a strategy to achieve Net Zero.

Whatever the size or type of your organisation, we can help you to do just that.

To request a copy of our Practical guide to achieving Net Zero or to discuss your requirements please call John Treble on 01761 419081 or email John@GreenConsultancy.com

The target

The Government has set a target of achieving Net Zero greenhouse gases (GHG) by 2050 and many doubt that this is sufficiently ambitious to avoid the escalating catastrophic effects of global warming - there is certainly no time to waste!

Setting and meeting YOUR target

Few organisations have the knowledge and resources available in-house to achieve this by themselves but we can provide all of the help that you need.

Using a combination of extensive specialist expertise in energy and carbon efficiency, sustainability strategies, data analysis and cutting-edge technologies, we can work in partnership with you to achieve Net Zero. We will develop and deliver a comprehensive plan that optimises energy and resource use and progressively reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

A holistic, strategic, long-term approach that covers every aspect of your organisation, is required to deliver the maximum benefit and to place your business in the best position to achieve Net Zero.

Typically, our approach includes, but is not limited to:

  • Developing a best practice Net Zero policy.
  • Engaging senior directors to ensure top-level buy-in.
  • Creating a Net Zero roles and responsibilities structure.
  • Creating and delivering a Net Zero communications programme.
  • Development of a Net Zero Action Plan which may include Science Based Targets (SBTs)
  • Identification of training needs, including ‘training the trainer’(to maximise in-house embedding of knowledge where possible).
  • Delivery of a tailored training and behaviour change programme.
  • Support in recruitment of personnel with specific knowledge and experience.
  • Review and modification of management systems and procedures around energy and resource efficiency for cost-effective management.
  • Full audit of energy and resource use (covering procurement, materials and waste management) to identify opportunities to minimise GHG emissions
  • Options appraisals, outsourcing support and financing options to deliver most efficient plant and equipment upgrades/installations.
  • Project implementation management.
  • Mentoring staff with Net Zero roles to deliver the projects.
  • Using big data effectively to support measurable continuous improvement against standards including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We will also consider the use of longer-term, evolving sustainable solutions and technologies such as:

  • Renewable energy
  • Decentralised energy generation
  • Energy storage
  • New material and product solutions
  • Electrification of heat and transport
  • Long term feasibility of green gas
  • Hydrogen technology
  • District heating and cooling schemes
  • Data, The Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligent (AI) technologies

CMP Review for University of Bedfordshire

“The Green Consultancy carried out a review of our Carbon Management Plan. Their consultant’s expertise in this subject was obvious from the start and it was clear that anything that he didn’t know about carbon and energy management isn’t worth knowing.”

Adam Higgin, Energy & Environment Manager

Achieving Net-Zero Carbon for London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

“Our requirements for this project were quite bespoke; a one-size-fits-all approach would not have worked. Indeed Carbon Management Plans with in-depth Scope 3 reporting are not yet prevalent in the HE sector and, due to the nature of our Institution’s work, the Scope 3 elements needed to be just as robust as Scopes 1 and 2.

This was one of the reasons that I was particularly impressed by how the work was handled. The skill and knowledge that was brought to bear demonstrated a level of sure-footedness that was reassuring not just to myself but also to the other stakeholders involved in the project. Thus, I am glad we went with The Green Consultancy for this project – the breadth and quality of the work delivered was exactly what we required.”

Ola Bankole, Head of Sustainability

CMP Review for Fenland District Council

“I am totally satisfied with your energy survey and would like to thank you for completing the report in such a tight time frame.  We will consider the recommendations for the purposes of reviewing the Council’s carbon management plan.  Your consultant was very professional and organised.  He produced a thorough and constructive report.”

Isabel Edgington, Environmental Projects Officer
