Environmental Sustainability Plan

Simpson Associates is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. We are passionate about understanding the impact our decisions and activities have on the environment and communities across the UK.

Our company is actively taking steps to achieve this aim. It has been approved by our Managing Director, as our Directors are committed to leading the company to actively work towards reducing carbon emissions.

Since the Paris Climate Agreement approved at COP21 in 2015, nation governments have made commitments to cut emissions and work towards permanent removal of any remaining greenhouse gases, recognising the urgent need for ambitious climate change. Governments and companies setting and achieving net zero targets will be key to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C.

According to The Carbon Trust, there is no commonly agreed definition of what constitutes net zero emissions, however the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) has defined Net Zero targets for companies as follows:

‘To reach a state of net zero emissions for companies implies two conditions:

  1. To achieve a scale of value-chain emission reductions consistent with the depth of abatement achieved in
    pathways that limit warming to 1.5°C with no or limited overshoot and;
  2. To neutralise the impact of any source of residual emissions that remains unfeasible to be eliminated by
    permanently removing an equivalent amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide.’1
    Simpson Associates has adopted our first Carbon Reduction Plan in 2021 as part of our ESG agenda as we
    recognise and support the need to work together to commit to Net Zero. This Carbon Reduction Plan evidences
    that commitment and publishes our Baseline Emissions Footprint, together with our Emissions Reduction Targets
    and Carbon Reduction Projects

Explore our comprehensive Carbon Reduction Plan below. This plan outlines our commitment to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050 and details our ongoing efforts to minimize our environmental impact. Updated annually, it details our baseline emissions footprint, ambitious emissions reduction targets, and a roadmap of carbon reduction projects. By delving into this plan, you’ll gain valuable insights into our commitment to sustainability, greenhouse gas reduction strategies, and our dedication to a cleaner future for our communities across the UK.
