Challenge

Salisbury Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of commercial facilities management, reached out to EIC to explore setting a net zero target. 

We were highly recommended after previously providing carbon compliance services to a contact that had recently joined the client. This demonstrates our good standing, providing reassurance to Salisbury that they could have confidence in our experience and efficiency. 

Salisbury’s aim was to gain a better understanding of their carbon footprint and set a realistic roadmap to carbon neutrality. This is becoming a pragmatic and popular corporate strategy, as businesses strive to stay ahead of the curve.

Solution

EIC calculated Salisbury Group’s Scope 1 and 2 emissions for 2019 and provided the client with their carbon footprint. 

2020 had not been fully representative due to the Covid pandemic, and it was clear that there were less emissions compared to 2019. Knowing that the client was not performing onsite visits during that time, it was likely that Salisbury’s emissions had not increased. We knew that we didn’t need to calculate their carbon emissions in 2020 and we therefore chose to evaluate the client’s 2019 data. 

Our carbon footprint information identified transportation as being an area of particularly high emissions for the company. This reflected the client’s facilities management business model. Reducing transportation emissions in the short term can be very challenging, and to reduce emissions entirely would require transitioning the entire fleet to EVs. This would also mean installing EV infrastructure – such as charging ports – which would then have to be powered by green electricity tariffs. Salisbury Group therefore elected to offset their emissions via EIC as a transitory step. 

The company purchased carbon credits (accredited by Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Programme) totalling 110% of their 2019 Carbon Footprint.

Result

By offsetting their carbon emissions, Salisbury Group has ensured that they are carbon negative for 2020. This is not only beneficial to the planet, but will also provide reputational and strategic advantages for the company itself. By staying ahead of the curve, Salisbury Group will be better prepared for future legislation and changing customer expectations. EIC aims to support clients as they navigate the UK’s transition to a net zero economy. We provide guidance, market insight and bespoke utility and carbon services. Our goal is to future proof your business in a seamless and efficient way. To learn more about how we can guide you towards your carbon negative goals, contact us at EIC today.
