TTC Group Pledge “Net Zero” by 2022

Press Release | September 2021

TTC Group | Net Zero 2022 Pledge

TTC Group have maintained an accredited Environmental Management System for over 15 years which has assisted us in reducing our environmental impact and allowed us to demonstrate our commitment to being an environmentally responsible organization.

Over the last 2 years, we have implemented decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business change and innovation, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions and other carbon emission elimination strategies.

This has included:

  • Increasing operational efficiencies
  • Ride to work Schemes
  • Effective waste management
  • Green travel
  • LED lighting installations
  • Use of renewable energy
  • Use of the latest technology focused on low energy use

“It is good to be involved in a business that is actively improving its environmental performance and knowing that what we do is contributing to a more sustainable future. Our Net Zero pledge is yet another example of our commitment to being a responsible and ethically sound organisation”

David Finney, Compliance Manager, TTC Group

To monitor and measure our performance we have been undertaking carbon emission assessments and analysing our performance, which in turn, helps us identify areas for continued improvement. 

Our final actions will involve neutralising any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net zero annual carbon emissions by the end of 2022.  This does not mean that we will then stand still - we will continue to assess every new business activity and monitor and report our performance.

The Paris Agreement aims to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2050.  No one company or organisation can do this on its own and everyone must play their part.

We must be seen as proactively contributing on at least the same terms as many other businesses to the whole climate justice programme. Our aim as a business is to demonstrate how carbon net zero can be achieved, in some cases earlier than might have been initially thought possible.
