GGMR Carbon Reduction Plan

Publication date: 01/12/21

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

GGMR is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2023.

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: 01/04/20 – 31/03/21

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations. 

Our baseline emissions year was at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. All staff were working remotely with no commuting or minimal business travel.

Regardless of the pandemic our working from home model has proved highly successful and productive, therefore there are no plans to for all GGMR to work or operate from our serviced office in Corsham.

We will only keep this address for company registration purposes. Consequently, all of our emissions were due to electricity and heat from home working (Scope 2).

We do not have any company vehicles or machinery etc.

Our current emissions cover the second year of the pandemic and are expected to remain unchanged as staff continue to work from home.

Emissions reduction targets

To progress achieving Net Zero, we plan to choose the most viable carbon efficient options practicable to us and use carbon offsetting. We project that we will be able to reduce carbon emissions over the next two years to 0 tCO2e by 2023 a reduction of 100%. We will attempt to do this sooner, if possible, but there is currently still considerable uncertainty about the course of the pandemic which affects business travel.

All GGMR employees will continue to work remotely to reduce emissions, and there are no plans, regardless of the pandemic for employees to work or operate from our head office in Corsham. This is only being used for business registration purposes and infrequent meeting with key management members 1-2 times a month.

Carbon Reduction Projects

To achieve our goal of reaching Net Zero by 2023, we will be instigating the following policies, which will be in place during the delivery of our contracts:

For business travel:

For home working:

For selecting suppliers:

Measurements of our carbon emissions will be communicated in quarterly management meetings, resulting in a clear roadmap/plan of action to support and address any issues and identify new carbon reduction measures to ensure we remain on track for Net Zero 2023.
