Our Carbon Reduction Plan

Trant Engineering Ltd is committed to achieving Operational Net Zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of the UK government target. We are dedicated to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from our activities. 

Please click HERE to see our Carbon Reduction Plan, which details our net zero goals.

Our baseline emissions footprint for financial year 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021 was 3087.07 tonnes CO2e. Aligned with our trajectory for Operational Net Zero, we aim to achieve a reduction of 50% by 2028 and 75% by 2035 (or sooner) compared to our baseline. In addition, our Scope 3 emissions have been assessed and feed into our plan for Organisational Net Zero by 2050.

We aim to:

  • Utilise the most efficient and low emissions solutions for our plant and machinery
  • Replace non-renewable fossil fuels with low carbon alternatives
  • Create a vehicle transition plan to demonstrate how we will replace diesel-fuelled vehicles with hybrid and electric alternatives
  • Implement roof top solar photovoltaics for electricity production

Our baseline footprint has been verified in accordance with ISO 14064:2019 standard
