Energy & Carbon Reduction Statement – September 2022
Recognising that we have our part to play in tackling climate change, O’Shea’s is committing to becoming a carbon neutral company by 2040.
With an Environmental Management System in place, holding
certification to ISO EN BS 14001:2015, we shall scrutinise those areas of
the business which can significantly impact our carbon footprint. Identifying where reductions can be made and with the introduction of
renewable energy sources, our intention is to achieve carbon neutrality, with carbon offsetting being a secondary consideration.
To date, we have taken measures to reduce energy usage
and its associated emissions across our offices and sites. Measures include the
introduction of energy efficient hardware, the installation of renewable energy sources and the switching of diesel and petrol company cars
over to hybrid and full electric vehicles. From these measures we are pleased to be able to demonstrate that our efforts are reflected in
the reduction of emissions attributable to our energy usage:
From FY23 we are looking to expand our reporting and
focus, to also cover the key Scope 3 emissions. This full measurement of
our footprint shall allow us to, further plan and engage with our supply chain and interested parties, to achieve the required
reductions in our total carbon emissions. We will be sharing further updates shortly.
senior management of the company are committed to achieving this goal and shall
encourage all employees and other
interested parties, to join us in playing their part too in addressing this global challenge
