Our net zero commitment
We are proud to announce our net zero carbon target date of 2040.
This commitment is being made by all OCS UK companies, OCS Ireland, OCS Australia and OCS New Zealand.
Our commitment is a full scope commitment and includes Scopes 1, 2 and all of scope 3. Scope 1 covers direct emissions from OCS owned or controlled sources. Scope 2 covers emissions from the purchase of electricity, steam, heat, or cooling. Scope 3 includes all other indirect emissions that occur in our value chain.
We recognise that Scope 3 is complex and will require us to influence our supply chain and other partners. But we believe that our commitment should include all of scope 3 as to make progress and achieve a net zero science based target as a society, all factors need to be addressed. At OCS, we take our part in this seriously.
In arriving at our net zero carbon target, we have undertaken deeply thoughtful work on our operational emissions which is grounded in the practical aspects of what we do.
Our net zero commitment is made in line with science-based targets to reduce emissions in line with the Paris agreement goals.
Science-based targets provide resilience against new regulations, drive innovation and demonstrate our sustainability commitments are authentic.
Making Sustainable Changes
We are committed to reducing our single-use plastic footprint. We have replaced plastic straws and sandwich bags across our UK catering functions with more sustainable options. We have updated our procurement process to ensure that we prioritise working with suppliers who share our vision. And in collaboration with our waste management supplier, Reconomy, we have started our education programme to encourage all those who interact with OCS to think twice about their own plastic use.
