Sustainability Policy - Mylocum


Carbon Reduction Plan

Supplier name: Mylocum Ltd

Publication date: 9/10/2023

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Mylocum Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2040.

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 – 2022

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.

We have used baseline reporting figures for 2022 as this is the first year that we have access to an entire year’s data. This is due to Covid 19 and staff working from home for the majority of 2020/21, which would not give an accurate reflection of energy usage. Going forward we will engage an external consultant and work with them to design a mechanism for effectively capturing and recording data as we advance. This will provide the ability to identify target areas for cutting emissions.

As far as possible we have based calculations on actual data rather than assumptions and average data methods to ensure accurate calculations and target setting.

Emissions reduction targets

In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets and initiatives to reduce the amount of resources used or emissions generated.

  • Reduce absolute carbon emissions by 10% by 2027
  • Reduce business travel carbon emissions by 15% per capital by 2027.
  • Reduce energy use per square meter by 15% by 2027
  • Purchase 50% of purchased electricity (1.5 tCO2e) from verified renewable sources by 2027.
  • Reduce consumption and waste with 70% waste generated recycled to reduce landfill
  • Reduce single use plastics, packaging and increase recyclability of products by 90%
  • Reduce energy usage over the next 5 years by 20% through increased staff awareness and

LED lighting replacement.

  • Reduce scope 3 emissions by 10% though use of other forms of transport, public transport, car share, electric vehicles
  • Use of online resources instead of printed materials wherever possible
  • Exploring the introduction of a salary sacrifice electric vehicle scheme to support employees to access electric vehicle more cost effectively and support staff to reduce their own carbon emissions.
  • Source 100% materials from and manufacture products within the UK (or relevant region) to reduce carbon emissions and improve supply chain transparency by 2027
  • Biodiversity initiatives developed or supported in the PA local area
  • Due diligence to be carried out on 100% supply chain suppliers to ensure they have a clear and timebound commitment to sustainability and carbon reduction

We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 18.48 tCO2e by 2027. This is a reduction of 20%

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

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2021-22 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equates to 22.21 tCO2e, a 4.2%ge reduction against the 2022 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

  • We have switched our electricity supply to a renewable energy provider, significantly reducing our carbon footprint.
  • We conduct many of our client meetings online, which has notably reduced business travel and associated emissions.
  • Disposable cups have been removed from our offices, and we now only provide reusable crockery and cutlery to minimize waste.
  • We have introduced recycling within our offices. Our data indicates that 20% of office waste produced onsite is now recycled.
  • We have registered with ISO 14001 Environmental Management accreditation. We conduct yearly audits to assess our performance against these standards.
  • We are decreasing the intensity and frequency of business travel to further reduce emissions.
  • We have appointed environmental champions across all departments to lead and promote sustainable practices.
  • We conducted annual environmental and energy efficiency training sessions, with 95% employee participation in 2023.

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:

Initiatives to reduce the generation of emissions and resource consumption


Implemented by


% reduction in

emissions generated

Switching to 100% renewable


The first quarter of delivery


Installing energy-efficient lighting at all delivery premises (LEDs,

energy-saving bulbs)

Already in place


Promoting the use of digital resources in our offices to reduce energy usage (e.g., email usage

instead of paper and printing)

Already in place

98.3% (compared to using paper)

Eliminating single-use plastic from all delivery locations

Already in place

75% reduction

Promoting green transport options for staff attending classroom training (e.g., cycle to

work, carsharing, subsidies for public transport)

Already in place


Promoting remote training options for candidates where possible (e.g., via MS Teams/Zoom on all mobile devices)

Already in place

100% reduction in emissions when candidates do not travel

Investing in electric/hybrid cars for staff use, including charging ports at our offices

We have already invested in 2 electric / hybrid vehicles


Delivering annual awareness training to all employees on green issues, sustainability, and carbon reduction measures (e.g., energy and waste management, plastic

pollution, air quality)

Already do this and will continue to run quarterly awareness

training sessions within contract.
