Carbon Neutral

How do CLS Energy help companies to Net Carbon (CO2e) Neutrality?

  • Agree and set your scope and boundaries
  • Establish an accurate baseline
  • Conduct investment grade energy and fleet audits (and assess other scope 3 areas)
  • Address: Behaviours, measures, technologies, actions and controls
  • Establish a fully costed plan
  • Measure, verify and review
  • Establish target
  • Formulate a focussed project-led trajectory

Why reduce CO2e emissions? 

  • Lower your environmental impact whilst reducing your operational costs.
  • Deliver a competitive cost advantage (we average 18%).
  • Enhance your reputation as an organisation that strives to make a serious difference.
  • Increase your market share as customers and supply chains demand what you have.

If your business is considering how to reduce your carbon footprint?

Addressing your CO2e footprint with CLS Energy is not about offsetting or buying your way out of the problem. We work in long-term relationships with companies such as Freightroute, Aico, FIS  and Bottomline Technologies and Councils that include Gloucester City, and North Herts that each have genuine ambitions to tackle their emissions at source.

In this way they can never be accused of ‘greenwashing’ and will make real and ongoing auditable energy, cost and CO2e savings. These will be based on the findings of forensic energy and fleet assessments for which we have collectively more than 100 years of experience.

CLS Energy’s Carbon Reduction Consultancy Service

“Following the government’s further commitment in 2019 to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050 and the outcome of the Paris Agreement, it is clear that carbon management and Net Zero goals make good business sense for forward thinking organisations and their supply chains. There is an onus on businesses to be transparent in reporting and developing environmental objectives to reduce their negative environmental impacts”.

With CLS Energy’s own pledge of zero carbon by 2025, we help companies assess where they are now, where they want to be, and work with them to provide a personalized plan and trajectory on how to get there.

The range of services we offer are bespoke to each company’s requirements, aims and objectives:

Carbon Baseline (foot-printing) – Establishing scope and boundaries and what to include in your carbon footprint, collate and assess data and provide technical support with carbon footprint calculations to International GHG standards.

Carbon and energy audit – we conduct desktop and site-based audits of your facilities, processes, energy and fleet management practices, and how energy and fuel are being used, to identify and recommend areas for improvement.

Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – All of our calculations and targeting use these targets to ensure that what we are proposing will deliver to the Paris Agreement. 

ESOS Assessment – As one of the first 20 UK ESOS Lead Assessors, having personally assessed 68 UK and EU Companies to full compliance. Alan can guide obligated companies through the ESOS regulations and ensure compliance whilst identifying practical energy and transport fuel saving opportunities. Average savings of 18% of total energy and fuel costs.

SECR consultancy – we can address SECR compliance for obligated companies, including comprehensive reporting requirements, calculating energy use and associated emissions in line with the GHG protocol, and producing your final report for your annual accounts.

Target setting – we will agree a target and set a trajectory to achieving this through practical measures, technologies, controls and behaviours across energy, fleet and renewables.

ISO 14001 / 50001 consultancy – we can support you with achieving and maintaining an Environmental or Energy Management System in line with the international standards.

Carbon sequestration or offsetting – the last item on the list, we can advise you on the best approach once all energy and cost saving opportunities have been exhausted.

Working Towards Carbon Neutrality

CLS Energy has set its own ambitious target to become carbon neutral by 2025. Alongside this, we work with organisations, including large multi-nationals and Local Authorities to implement strategies that will bring them to carbon neutrality.

The starting point is a discussion to understand your goals, your scope and boundaries,  and the current carbon emissions levels of your business. With a clearly defined, measured and verified baseline and target, we can then deliver data-led, internationally certified; through IPMVP certified measurement and verification professional assessment, site and operational assessments and vehicle profiling, following ISO 14000 series guidance to demonstrate your route to savings in energy, fuel, cost and carbon.

CLS Energy is experienced in providing ESOS Audits and compliant assessments for mandated companies. Our consultancy services can ensure that you provide all the necessary data for annual Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR). We will ensure that your business is in a strong position to make informed choices regarding greenhouse gas reduction measures.
