TSS’ Commitment to Achieving Net Zero

Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. Evidence of climate change is all around us with a significant rise in deadly heatwaves, droughts, storms, fires and floods making some places unliveable.

The key issue of global warming is largely due to human activity creating an imbalance between the amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) released into the atmosphere and the amount of carbon that can be absorbed by our natural sinks (a sink is anything that absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than it releases – for example, plants, the ocean and soil).

Carbon is essential to all life on Earth, it’s in our DNA, in the food we eat and the air we breathe, however, this imbalance must be addressed to avoid a catastrophic outcome for our planet and its inhabitants

Science based evidence has dictated that the world must almost halve greenhouse gas emissions in the next seven years to limit global warming to no more than 1.5°C.  Anything above 1.5°C and we risk reaching climatic tipping points like the melting of arctic permafrost, meaning we could lose control of our climate for good.

In line with UK Government’s commitments to significantly reduce carbon emissions by 2030, working towards net zero by 2050, Total Support Services pledges to achieving this through the adoption of Science Based Targets, and will achieve our commitments through:

  • Electrifying our fleet of vehicles
  • Measuring our scope 3 carbon emissions with tier 1 suppliers and engage with them to create a carbon reduction plan
  • utilising chemical free and totally sustainable cleaning products
  • ensuring that all food waste is disposed of through anaerobic digestion to create renewable energy
  • making our head office space more sustainable overall
  • Offsetting emissions through high quality carbon credits
  • Working with our clients to achieve their climate impact through carbon reduction programmes

TSS is committed to ensuring the actions of The Company do not have a negative effect on the future of our planet.
