Our commitment to reducing carbon footprint
At phs, we take pride in our commitment to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact. As a responsible and forward-thinking organisation, we recognise the importance of understanding different emission scopes and implementing strategies to mitigate them. In this blog, we delve into the concept of Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, shedding light on their significance and outlining our efforts to address each scope.
What are Scope emissions?
Scope 1: Taking accountability for direct emissions
Scope 1 emissions encompass direct greenhouse gas emissions produced by a company's owned or controlled sources. This includes emissions from fuel combustion in company vehicles, onsite machinery, and industrial processes. As a provider of various services, such as waste management, we understand the significance of addressing Scope 1 emissions.
Scope 2: Embracing renewable energy sources
Scope 2 emissions refer to indirect greenhouse gas emissions generated from the generation of purchased electricity, heating, and cooling consumed by a company. As an organisation conscious of our energy consumption, we strive to reduce our Scope 2 emissions and transition to cleaner energy sources.
Scope 3: Collaborating for greater environmental impact
Scope 3 emissions encompass indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain. These emissions often stem from sources outside of a company's direct control, such as business travel, transportation of goods, and waste disposal.
