Commitment to achieving Net Zero

Through our partnership with Carbon Neutral Britain, Zest Eco Ltd is already a net zero business. We are committed to ensuring we have a plan in place to reducing the level of emissions of all of our activities on an annual basis.  

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Emissions Reduction Targets

Due to the increase in activity of our business and deployment of infrastructure across the UK our baseline emissions will increase from our current emissions reporting and individuals carbon footprint will also rise due to increased travel and activities.  We anticipate that a representative baseline will be available in 2025.  However, despite the increased activity, our company will seek to limit the average tC02e per employee through suitable accredited carbon reduction projects.  

From 2025 onwards we would look to reduce the baseline by 10% in 2026.

In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.

2025 - 10% reduction
2026 - 10% reduction  
2027 -  5% reduction  
2028 -  5% reduction  

This is a reduction of 30%.  We would look to offset the remaining.  

Carbon Reduction Projects

The following environmental management measures and projects have been implemented but as we have not currently got a baseline their impact is not known.

  • Educating staff – Staff placed on Carbon literacy training
  • Salary sacrifice scheme to switch people to BEV
