Carbon Reduction Plan

South East Security is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy online as part of our Carbon Reduction Plan

Commitment to Net Zero

South East Security is committing to becoming Net Zero by 2050. Our carbon reduction goals align with the IPCC’s carbon reduction roadmap, following the Science-Based Target initiative (SGTi).

Our strategies to achieve this goal are detailed below.

 

Baseline Emissions

Baseline Emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past, before introducing any strategies to reduce emissions, and are the reference point against which emission reductions can be measured.

 

South East Security plans to track Scope 1 and 2 in order to calculate Baseline Year Emissions using the following assumptions:

 

· Upstream transportation and distribution to be estimated using general assumptions on distance and number of deliveries per month.

· Staff survey to be conducted to calculate commuting and home-working emissions.

· Emissions from downstream transportation and distribution to be estimated by multiplying the monetary value of journeys by the emission factors provided by DEFRA.

· Business travel emissions from public transport to be estimated by multiplying the monetary value of journeys by the emission factors provided by DEFRA.

 

Sustainability

Sustainability concerns the long-term health and viability of our operations as well as our impact on the environment and society. We aim to focus on the following to achieve our Net Zero goals:

 

· Improving peoples lives by developing transitioning plans, supporting our workforce and adopting healthcare options

· Caring for the planet by reducing emissions and increasing circularity of what we buy

· Working towards reaching Net Zero by addressing Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, and investing in new methods and technologies to reduce our carbon footprint

 

Scope 1 Emissions

Direct emissions are from sources that are owned or controlled by the Company including the use of fossil fuels, flaring and use of refrigerants in cooling systems. Company-owned vehicles are the largest source of emissions and South East Security are committed to transitioning to lower-emitting fuels and reducing miles travelled. This is being achieved by use of diesel exhaust fluid in existing vehicles, transitioning to electric vehicles as leases expire on existing, and embracing new technologies within the industry which allow remote access to systems thereby reducing the requirement to travel to sites. An on-site charging point has been installed to enable this transition. An air-con system has been installed to heat and cool the company premises rather than natural gas. This is serviced regularly to ensure it is operating at peak performance thereby keeping energy costs low and maintaining office temperatures. South East Security is also gradually replacing fluorescent lights with LED lights for increased life span and efficiency.

 

Scope 2 Emissions

Scope 2 emissions are produced indirectly by the Company and not directly generated onsite, i.e. electricity which may be used to power electric vehicles. Reducing these emissions can be achieved through the use of renewable energy sources, energy efficient measures, and may include purchasing of renewable energy credits going forward.

 

Scope 3 Emissions

These are greenhouse gas emissions that result from the activities of the Company but occur outside the Company’s own operations, i.e. capital items purchased through a supply chain, the use of Company systems and products, or waste/disposal of products. South East Security are looking to assess existing suppliers for improvements in sustainability, implement power management settings on computers, switch to desktops or move to laptops with better energy ratings, move to working from home where possible, actively recruit locally to minimise travel and encourage walking or cycling to work. The installation of the on-site charging point also encourages staff to take-up electric cars. Further consideration is being given to use of solar power for on-site energy.
