Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Asite Solutions Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.


Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.

Baseline Year: 2022 (Reporting Year corresponds to Asite's fiscal year July 2021 - June 2022)

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.

Baseline emissions are a record of past greenhouse gas emissions that occurred prior to the implementation of any emission-reduction strategies. Baseline emissions serve as a baseline against which reductions in emissions can be measured.


Asite’s baseline emissions inventory includes all our measurable scope 1 & scope 2 emissions, together with a first estimate of our total scope 3 value chain emissions.


Asite includes all seven Kyoto Protocol Greenhouse Gas groups in our emissions footprint calculations where relevant.

Emissions reduction targets

In order to achieve our progress to achieving Net Zero, Asite have adopted the following carbon reduction targets. We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 48.82 tCO2e by 2027. This is a reduction of 20%. This carbon emission target has been guided by the UK government's standard carbon reduction metric, but it aims to drive carbon reduction ahead of the UK average.

Asite understands that as the company grows, we will be storing a significant amount of data on behalf of our clients. As a result, Asite's carbon footprint grows. Asite is implementing operational changes to reduce overall carbon impact in order to offset this increased carbon impact.

Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:


Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives


As 2022 will be the first year for Carbon Emission reporting, Asite has not completed any Carbon Reduction Initiatives. However, Asite has implemented a wide range of environmental management measures since the baseline year of 2022 in order to reduce carbon emissions by 20% by 2027.

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2022 baseline:

  1. Reducing international business travel as a percentage of revenue and incentivizing travel options with a lower carbon footprint, such as rail travel
  2. Office downsize, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Asite leased an unoccupied floor of an existing company asset to reduce costs and environmental impact.
  3. Adoption of virtual meetings and consultations, as well as increased use of online conferencing tools such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype, and WhatsApp for business meetings.
  4. Reduced carbon emissions from commuting through a more efficient work-from-home mix. Asite has adopted a hybrid work model.
  5. The Cycle to Work Scheme initiative at Asite is intended to encourage employees to cycle to work for the environmental, physical, and financial benefits that this most sustainable mode of transportation provides.


These schemes will aim to reduce carbon emissions by 12.206 tCO2e, a 20% reduction from the baseline in 2022, and the measures will be implemented while the contract is being performed.

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:

  1. Asite is currently forming an Environmental Social Governance (ESG) Steering Committee comprised of Senior Leadership Team members to track, coordinate, and ultimately reduce our global footprint. The ESG Steering Committee is committed to expanding our global ESG programme with new initiatives that will benefit all Asite entities.
  2. Build awareness amongst our workforce of the impact of their decisions on our journey to net zero
  3. Work with suppliers to encourage them to set their own carbon reduction targets in line with the science and sign up to the Science Based Target Initiative
  4. Exploring a salary sacrifice scheme for electric cars
  5. Prioritising environmental responsibility throughout the design and execution of future office refurbishment
  6. Minimising energy consumption in our datacentres through a life cycle assessment and the introduction of energy optimisation tools and processes


Declaration and Sign Off

This Carbon Reduction Plan has been completed in accordance with PPN 06/21 and associated guidance and reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans.

Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard[1] and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting[2].

Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard[3].
