We prioritise sustainability
and social responsibility

Sustainability isn’t just a goal for us; it’s embedded into who we are. We’re fostering new ways of working, making a positive impact on communities, future generations and our planet. The journey to Net Zero by 2030 is a shared commitment, with our Sustainability Committee leading initiatives for our employees, customers and partners as we strive to realise our vision.

Our commitment

We are committed to becoming a recognised Net Zero business by 2030 (for scope 1 and 2 emissions).

We encourage and support our customers, supply chain partners and employees to evolve their ways of working to continually reduce our impact on the environment.

Academia is using its 2022 data as its baseline year for this carbon reduction plan.

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced before the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions.

We will be transparent in reporting our journey’s progress, through our published Carbon Reduction Plan.
