IPSUM enables reliable reporting for your Carbon Reduction Plan, SECR, and ESOS compliance

From 30th Sept 2021, government suppliers require a Carbon Reduction Plan (“…which details their organisational carbon footprint and confirms their commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2050”…) when bidding for contracts over £5M.

Driving towards Net Zero business model

Essential reporting requirements cover emissions under three ‘scopes’; as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol* to understand and isolate their sources, and better target actions to address/reduce them:

Scope 1: All direct emissions

Scope 1: All direct emissions

From the activities of an organisation or under its control.

Scope 2: Indirect emissions

Scope 2: Indirect emissions

From electricity purchased and used by the organisation.

Scope 3: All other indirect emissions

Scope 3: All other indirect emissions

From activities of the organisation coming from sources that they do not own or control. These are usually the greatest share of the carbon footprint; associated with business travel, procurement, waste and water.

In its guideline for ESOS compliance the government specifies numerous stages but the principal two are:

Calculate your total energy consumption

The energy used by assets held or activities carried out by your organisation or group. This includes the energy consumed by buildings, industrial processes and transport.

Identify your areas of significant energy consumption

This is the energy used by assets held, or activities carried out, by your organization that account for at least 90% of your total energy consumption.

Reporting, and gathering the data to populate the report correctly can also be a costly process once you engage external consultants; who might perfectly competently advise you what you need to do but do not usually set about getting it done for you.

IPSUM enables you to take every detail into account

  • Every location you count as being in your boundary

  • The energy consumed at each location

  • Emissions created by the workforce/staff complement (even when working at home)

  • Activities within your supply chain associated with serving the needs of your business.
