Commitment to achieving Net Zero

AposHealth is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2045.

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.
Baseline Year: 2022
Baseline Emissions were established incorporating the findings of the Net Zero Review by Health Innovation – Kent Surrey Sussex.
Baseline year emissions:
Scope 1 11.3
Scope 2 3.3
Scope 3 4.5
Total Emissions 19.1

Current Emissions Reporting

Reporting Year: 2023
Scope 18.8
Scope 22.8
Scope 34.5

Emissions reduction targets

The Mitigation Hierarchy emphasises reducing the company’s emissions as a priority hence we focus our efforts on internal strategies to minimise our carbon footprint and to achieving Net Zero. We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 7.24 tCO2e by 2028. This is a reduction of 62%.

Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2022 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 3 tCO2e, a 15.7% reduction against the 2022 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

Reduced CO2e was achieved by transition from Stock On Site to Home Delivery which has significantly reduced our environmental impact. This is achieved by:

  • Minimising stock required at clinics
  • Significantly decreasing delivery trips between warehouse and clinics
  • Lowering overall stock imported into the UK
  • The ease of Home Delivery has nearly eliminated unnecessary returns, further streamlined processes and minimised environmental impact.

In the future we will implement further measures such as improving production efficiency.
