The Real Birth Company Ltd Carbon Reduction Plan to Net Zero by 2030

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

The Real Birth Company Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 for Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 categories defined by PPN 06/21.

Baseline Emissions Footprint 2022

Baseline year 2022 – Company C02 Emissions (tons)7.69 (Scopes1,2 and 3 inclusive).

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.

Our 2022 baseline year emissions inventory represents Scope 1, Scope 2 and the subset of Scope 3 categories defined by PPN 06/21. Our footprint represents GHG emissions resulting from our operations and employees as relevant to each category of emissions under and operational control approach.

In line with PPN 06/21 guidance, Scope 3 included sources consisting of business travel, employee commuting, upstream and downstream transportation and distribution, and waste from operations.

Carbon Reduction Projects

The Real Birth Company Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero GHG emissions by 2030 in line with current NHS targets and below is the current plan to achieve this. Some projects are already underway / completed. We will publish our yearly carbon emissions and track this regularly to ensure accountability.

  1. As a digital programme, our digital carbon footprint still needs assessing. We use the ANS for our hosting. ANS are the first 100% carbon neutral hosting company in the UK, they comply to PAS2060 Carbon Neutral Standards, contribute to hydroelectric renewable energy schemes and are an Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme compliant. This aids in reducing our Scope 2 output.
  1. Internally we use a waste and refuse company for our waste and recycling, Pedicargo whom collect all waste for recycling on bikes resulting in zero emissions and locally save 1000s of tonnes of waste from going to landfill every year. This supports our reduction in Scope 3.
  2. Our employees work some of their hours from home to reduce their commuting footprint. Additionally on office days, employees either car share, “Walk to Work” where local employees meet along the way and walk together or take public transport.
  1. We have adapted our training model so some of the training can be completed virtually which reduces travel emissions. Additionally, we are implementing into trusts / hospitals within a similar geographical location, this ensures any travel required for face-to-face training, implementation, site visits or community engagement can be done during the same time frame, reducing travel, and producing the least amount of carbon footprint. Public transport is used whenever possible.
  1. All our staff are qualified as Carbon Literacy Certified which represents their robust understanding of the climate context in day-to-day life and are committed to adjusting their behaviours in work and at home to reduce the carbon footprint, as well as influencing their social and professional circles.
  1. The use of renewable energy providers throughout our offices and a commitment to only use offices which use a green energy tariff and fully recycle all of the buildings waste materials.
  1. Use energy efficient lighting in all offices.
  1. Reducing travel as much as possible and using public transport, however where this may not be viable, obtaining, and electric company car as opposed to diesel.
  1. Committing to NOT buying carbon offset credits to solve our carbon footprint problem, instead, taking a practical approach as a team, and working on eliminating our carbon footprint as much as possible through business and habitual adaptations.
