TEAM Energy Launches Carbon Reduction Consultancy

TEAM Energy Launches Carbon Reduction Consultancy
31 August 2021
 

TEAM Energy's Net Zero and Carbon Reduction Consultancy services are aiming to help organisations to meet the net-zero challenge.

The UK has a target to reduce emissions 68 per cent by 2030 and 78 per cent by 2035, with the goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

To support organisations in meeting this challenge, TEAM Energy has developed a Net Zero and Carbon Reduction Consultancy service designed to help them define, shape and monitor a carbon emissions strategy tailored to their operational needs and challenges.

 

“There is no getting away from the growing demand to be working towards net-zero. Although the UK legislation is still new, we’re increasingly seeing pressure from the supply chain, financial institutions, and consumers forcing businesses into taking action. Elsewhere there are organisations determined to lead by example driven by a desire to play their part in tackling the climate crisis, investing everything they can into becoming carbon neutral."

Pressure to Meet Upcoming Carbon Targets

 

In response to the mounting pressure to meet these targets, from the UK Government, supply chain and consumers, many organisations are looking to create a carbon reduction and net-zero strategy plan. However, according to edie’s 2021 Net-Zero Business Barometer survey, 45 per cent of businesses are yet to set their net-zero targets.

One of the greatest challenges of a net-zero strategy is understanding the carbon emission outputs of an organisation’s operations, including its supply chain. Monitoring and measuring emissions across scopes 1, 2 and 3 is complex, invariably putting pressure on operational resources. Additionally, not every organisation has the capacity to employ the knowledge and skills needed to manage a decarbonisation strategy.

For organisations with ambitious sustainability objectives, they can opt for TEAM’s Consultants to define a science-Based target that sets out a path to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.

Organisations who are planning to create a net-zero strategy and are putting sustainability at the forefront of their agenda will benefit from these services. Working in partnership to support in decarbonising their operations, TEAM’s Consultants will provide dedicated advice and guidance enabling organisations to meet their sustainability transformation goals.

Commenting on the launch TEAM’s Head of Operations, Timothy Holman said:

“There is no getting away from the growing demand to be working towards net-zero. Although the UK legislation is still new, we’re increasingly seeing pressure from the supply chain, financial institutions, and consumers forcing businesses into taking action. Elsewhere there are organisations determined to lead by example driven by a desire to play their part in tackling the climate crisis, investing everything they can into becoming carbon neutral.

“Whatever the motivations, there is no escaping the complexity and scale of what it takes to become net-zero which can be overwhelming, but that’s where our consultants can help.

“With COP26 taking place this year and the government’s ambitions accelerating, we expect there could be new regulations forcing businesses to act more efficiently to come into effect, through increasing building performance standards for example; potentially with penalties for non-compliance.

“My advice to anyone considering a carbon reduction plan for their organisation is not to wait, do not get left behind because you aren’t sure where to start, speak to us because we are here to help.”

Recognising that there is no one size fits all approach to becoming carbon neutral, TEAM shaped their offering to include flexible purchase options. The mix of solutions can be delivered together, individually or on subscription.

The company’s Net Zero and Carbon Reduction Consultancy is delivered by the Energy Services arm of the business and can be provided alongside TEAM’s complementary consultancy services including Energy Behaviour Change Programmes, Energy Audits and Surveys and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
