CARBON REDUCTION PLAN

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Sight and Sound Technology Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

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: 2021
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
Scope 1 and Scope 2 calculated from data collected for our financial year ending 31st October 2021 and covers our site in Northampton.

Scope 3 calculated based on estimated data regarding employee commuting and using personal vehicles for business use. For other emissions, such as upstream and downstream transportation, we currently have no reliable way of collecting the data and have therefore omitted it from our Baseline reporting. We are in the process of producing methodologies for gathering all categories of Scope 3 emissions data to establish a clear baseline for following years.

Baseline year emissions:
EMISSIONS TOTAL (tCO2e)
Scope 1 22.7
Scope 2 1.8
Scope 3 (Included Sources) 10.2
Total Emissions 34.7


Current Emissions Reporting

Reporting Year: 2021

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 30.95 tCO2e by 2027. This is a reduction of 10.5%.

Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:

Carbon Reduction Initiatives for 2022

The following environmental management measures and projects are being implemented since the 2021 baseline:

  • Implementing companywide travel policies to encourage the use of public transport.
  • Recycling bins will be made available in all office spaces and communal spaces.
  • Invest in our teleconferencing facilities to reduce mileage undertaken by staff members to attend meetings.
  • Switch to more sustainable packaging for shipping goods.
  • Align our business with suppliers who are committed to the same sustainability goals.
  • Make all company cars fully electric or hybrid.
  • Paper free office initiative across all departments.
  • Enforce heating and lighting efficiencies, such as automatic switch off and central heat/cooling regulation.
