IPEX Consulting Ltd
Carbon Reduction Plan
1 Commitment to achieving Net Zero
2 Reporting Periods
This is IPEX Consulting Ltd.’s first Carbon Reduction Plan and first report of Carbon Emissions. IPEX Consulting Ltd.’s financial reporting year (FY) runs from September to August; the same period shall be used for measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions.
3 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: 2020-21|
|Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.|
|This is the first year that IPEX Consulting has formally calculated its CO2 emissions and therefore forms the baseline year.|
|Baseline year emissions:|

5 Emissions reduction targets
6 Carbon Emissions Reduction Initiatives
IPEX Consulting has implemented an environment policy, sought to reduce waste, the need to travel and altered its expenses policy to encourage the use of public transport where possible. These initiatives were implemented prior to the baseline measurement of carbon emissions presented here for 2020-21. These measures will be in effect when performing our future contracts.
