Carbon Neutral

W​​​​​e are delighted to announce that we have achieved carbon neutral status in accordance with the global PAS 2060 standard.

Working with ECA Business Energy, an independent energy management advice company, we spent the last 12 months evaluating IPM's business processes and operations. This was a lengthy task with us having several regional depots nationwide, a fleet of vehicles and a workforce of over 100 employees, so it was a great achievement to accomplish this four years ahead of our original target date of 2025.

This has now provided us the scope to focus on becoming a net-zero business by 2030, reducing our total emissions year on year to reach this goal.

Our commitment to making the world a better place for future generations is not something that will happen overnight, nor without considerable investment – it is something that each of us as individuals is responsible for working towards, and becoming carbon neutral is just one chapter of this story.

While we have always been mindful of the impacts our actions have on the environment, we knew there was plenty more that we could be doing as an organisation. The UK government’s 2019 target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 was one of the catalysts which spurred us on. We undertook a full carbon assessment to determine what actions would be required if we were to become net-zero ourselves.

IPM's Carbon Footprint for 2021

Offsetting Projects IPM are engaged with

Cikel Brazilian Amazon REDD Project

Location                        Para, Brazil
Verification                 VCS Standard
Project Type                REDD+
Project ID                      832

This carbon offset project is located in the Brazilian state of Para. Around 63% of the Amazon rainforest has already been lost here. 
The CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project aims to avoid emissions from planned deforestation on a property in Paragominas Municipality, Para state, Brazil.


The main activity of the CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project is the cancelation of the planned deforestation activities and decided to instead conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) with Low Impact Logging (SFMLIL) practices.


Also, the company is intensifying and improving its practices to support sustainable social development, maintaining and improving the biodiversity monitoring at the RCC in the framework of FSC certification and REDD activities.


The project will avoid 9,432,299 tCO2 that would have been emitted into the atmosphere over the next ten years.

Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary

Location                        Cambodia
Verification                 VCS Standard
Project Type                REDD+
Project ID                      1650

Keo Seima Wildlife (KSWS) covers close to 300,000 ha in the east of Cambodia.


KSWS is home to more than 950 wild species, including 75 globally threatened species. It is also the ancestral home of the indigenous Bunong people, whose unique culture and beliefs are inseparable from the forest in which they live. 
Originally designated to protect the areas in 2022, KSWS is managed by the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment, with technical and financial support from WCS Cambodia. KSWS plays a vital role in the preservation of the region's important and vulnerable wildlife, including the world's largest populations of endangered, black-shanked douc and yellow-cheeked crested gibbon, as well as a nationally important population of the Asian elephant and many other species. 


At the same time, it supports the sustainable development of local communities, most notably through securing communities' legal title to their traditional lands, and through the REDD+ Benefit Sharing Mechanism which provides significant funding to community-chosen and community-led development projects.

Kothapeta: Renewable Energy

Location                        India
Verification                 VCS Standard
Project Type                Renewable Natural Gas
Project ID                      837

This project actively claims emission reductions by the usage of cleaner fuel i.e natural gas for electricity generation.

 

The project is a grid-connected natural gas-based Cycle Power Plant. The power plant comprises 2 x 140 MV natural gas-run turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, and a 165 MW steam turbine. 

This project activity will meet the base loads requirement of the southern grid. In the absence of the project, the same quantity of power would have been produced from Green House Gases (GHGs) intensive fossil fuels i.e coal. Since natural gas is energy-intensive fuel it emits fewer GHGs comparatively for the same quantity of power generated.
