Strategic moves and sustainability

Environmental risk reduction specialist Adler and Allan has launched several new services and strategies. It has also appointed a new Sustainability Manager to the business to embed sustainability at the heart of its growth strategy. Dan Ellis (pictured, above) joins the business from Delta-Simons where he was Principal Sustainability Consultant. He brings with him a wealth of experience in the sustainability, carbon reduction and ESG sphere.

Alongside the appointment, the firm is launching a series of services to help its clients to understand their environmental impact, decarbonise operations and take positive action towards a sustainable future.

These services include: Net-Zero Strategies and Action Plans; Carbon Offsetting; Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR); Energy Audits; Transport Audits; TCFD & Non-Financial Disclosures; and Environment Social Governance (ESG).

The firm has also recently launched a new sustainability tool to estimate the carbon emissions of any project unique to the client’s industry, offering its customers a ‘greener alternative’ when providing proposals. The tool allows full transparency of the CO2 emissions associated with all activities required in a project to allow clients to select from at least two remedial options; one being a reduced carbon alternative. The Environmental Consultancy team has built the tool using DEFRA conversion factors and is the first one of its kind in the industry.

The firm understands the importance of its own sustainability strategy as part of the supply chain. Ellis said: “Since 2012, we have measured, managed and reported on our carbon footprint via the Carbon Reduce Scheme in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006, achieving gold certification status.

“Over the past five years, we have cut our carbon intensity by over 14% per full-time equivalent (FTE) and realised a 4% reduction in our absolute emissions, despite significant business growth. We are committed to leading the way on achieving Net-Zero; and using our expertise in energy, fuel, waste, water and ecology help others to make the world a little better than it was yesterday.”
