KSB Environmental Policy

Carbon Reduction Plan – 2024 Our Commitment to achieving Net Zero.

Supplier Name: KSB Recruitment Consultants Ltd (04544522)

Introduction: At KSB Recruitment, we recognise the urgent need to address climate change and reduce our carbon footprint. As a leading hospitality and Catering Recruitment Company, we are committed to being a responsible business and contributing to the global effort to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. This carbon reduction plan outlines our strategies and initiatives to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a low-carbon economy.

1. Assess Current Carbon Footprint:

  • We have not previously been assessed so therefore will be using data order to meet with the requirements from 2023. We have conducted a comprehensive carbon footprint assessment to quantify our current greenhouse gas emissions across all aspects of our operations, including office energy use, business travel, and supply chain activities.

2. Set Clear Targets:

  • Set ambitious, science-based targets to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in line with the latest climate science and the Paris Agreement goals. These targets should be measurable, time-bound, and aligned with a trajectory to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

3. Energy Efficiency Improvements:

  • Implement energy efficiency measures in our offices, where possible as the offices we rent are fully inclusive offices where we have little control.
  • Encourage employees to adopt energy-saving practices, such as turning off lights and equipment when not in use and using energy-efficient appliances.
  • We will recycle 100% of our IT assets at the end of their life cycle in accordance with WEEE waste recycling regulation.

4. Sustainable Transport:

  • Encourage employees to use sustainable modes of transportation, such as car sharing, cycling, walking, or using public transit, for commuting to work.
  • Promote remote meetings to reduce the amount of business miles produced on face to face meetings.
  • Encourage the use of vehicles which are electric or hybrid vehicles and incentivise low-emission transportation options for business travel.

5. Supply Chain Engagement:

  • Work collaboratively with our suppliers and partners to identify opportunities for carbon reduction throughout our supply chain.
  • Prioritise suppliers and vendors with strong sustainability credentials and carbon reduction initiatives and support them in their transition to low-carbon practices.

6. Employee Engagement and Education:

  • Raise awareness among employees about the importance of carbon reduction and the role they can play in achieving our sustainability goals.
  • Provide training and resources to empower employees to adopt sustainable behaviours both at work and in their personal lives.
  • Encourage the recycling of all waste in the office and for the reduction in staff usage of single use products such as water bottles and plastic cups.
  • Training all staff members on environmental awareness and make it a part of our induction process.

7. Monitoring and Reporting:

  • Establish robust monitoring and reporting mechanisms to track our progress towards carbon reduction targets.
  • Regularly review and update our carbon reduction plan based on performance data, emerging best practices, and changes in technology and regulations.

Conclusion: By implementing these strategies and initiatives outlined in our carbon reduction plan, KSB Recruitment is committed to reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future for our planet. Together, we can build a greener, healthier, and more resilient world for generations to come. We have implemented a counter balance emission program whereby we use the sales generated within the business to trigger tree planting each month.

This plan provides a framework for KSB Recruitment to address its carbon emissions and work towards achieving its net-zero by 2050 commitment.
