In September 2023 Projective Group committed to achieving Net Zero emissions across our operations and supply chain by 2040 -10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement.
We are signatories to The ClimatePledge, and by association became a member of the UNFCCC’s Race to Zero Campaign.
Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases (GHG) 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: 01 January – 31 December 2022 (FY22)|
|Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations. Our baseline emissions are calculated using the operational control approach as described in the GHG Protocol.|
The baseline emissions provided for FY22 represent Projective Group’s initial baseline, which we will use to measure progress against our carbon reduction plan.
The operational scope of this emissions assessment covers all Projective Group companies and locations, as of 31 December 2022.

We are working on the supporting data to define interim emissions targets, and quantify the contribution of specific initiatives against these targets.
Projective Group are in the process of defining, assessing feasibility and prioritising a number of Carbon Reduction Initiatives.
We are currently in the process of defining, assessing feasibility and prioritising Carbon Reduction Initiatives in line with the three areas of action we have agreed to follow as a signatory to The Climate Pledge:
This Carbon Reduction Plan has been completed in accordance with PPN 06/21 and associated guidance and reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans.
Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard7and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting. For our analysis we used ADEME, DEFRA, and EEA sources to calculate our carbon footprint. These are recognized and recommended as reliable sources of greenhouse gas emission factors by various national and international organizations, including governments.
Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.
This Carbon Reduction Plan has been reviewed and signed off by the board of directors of Projective Group.
