At Bates IT, we believe the business community has a key role in tackling carbon reduction. We’re committed to leading by example.
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. It affects everyone – from families worrying about their children’s futures, to pension funds deciding where to invest. The science is clear: to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, business, government and society need to work together to transition to a net zero economy by 2050.
Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past. They were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. The Baseline is the reference point against which emission reduction can be measured.
This year, 2022 Bates IT Limited has calculated and reported on its emissions. As a result the calendar year of 2021 will be our baseline for emissions. Moving forward, any reductions in emissions will be measured against the 2021 baseline year.
“I’m proud that our organisation is stepping forward with others in the IT sector to drive the changes required to meet the UK’s Net Zero emissions 2050 target.
It takes courage and commitment to tell your customers, and employees about your plans to reduce greenhouse gases and how you’re going to achieve them, so congratulations to everyone involved in this process.
Bates IT Limited works in a constantly evolving world, by working together, we can take bigger steps to reduce carbon emissions within our industry.”
