Optimum are leading by example in the race to tackle climate change by signing up to the Net Zero Nation accelerator.
The accelerator, designed by Scottish community-based social enterprise Net Zero nation, is designed to help businesses gain audited carbon accounts to SECR standards.
Operations Director, Eileen Johnstone, is working with the Net Zero Nation team to baseline our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, which will lead to the development of a Carbon Management Plan to help us on our journey as a sustainable business.
Leading by example
Businesses looking to win new contracts with public sector authorities are being increasingly required to demonstrate their commitments to achieving net zero emissions by 2045 (in Scotland) or 2050 (rest of the UK).
As a business who helps clients understand and implement best practice work winning strategies, we believe that we should lead by example in taking the same action we are encouraging our clients to take.
“While many companies are guilty of greenwashing and advising others what to do, without taking action themselves, we believe that it is right for us to practice what we preach and take action to tackle the climate crisis. In our opinion, this adds credibility when we are advising clients to take similar action”
