CARBON REDUCTION POLICY

Supplier name: The Huntsman Group Limited

Publication date: 1st January 2022


Commitment to achieving Net Zero

The Huntsman Group Limited is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050


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: 2022

Additional details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations

We have not previously assessed or reported emissions, therefore, this year, 2022, is our baseline year.


Baseline Year Emissions:

Emissions                           Total (tCO2e)

Scope 1                                10.92

Scope 2                                N/A

Scope 3                               (Included Sources) N/A

Total Emissions                10.92

Emissions reduction targets

2022 is our first year measuring our carbon footprint, which is very low due to our flexible work from anywhere in the world policy and having no office space for employee use.


Therefore, we haven’t set out any previous emissions reduction commitment. In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.


1 Take into account environmental issues in its overall performance.

2 Energy: Ultimately, our goal is to reduce our energy consumption for two reasons, 1) the direct impact that it has on the business, 2) overall cost to the business. The Huntsman Group Limited will ensure that all lighting and computer hardware will be switched off outside of normal working hours. Any computer hardware that we do use is of highly efficient standard, screen savers are also in place should computers be left unattended for a period of time.

3 Waste: We aim to minimise waste material wherever possible. Ultimately we envisage a paperless office space, and as such we discourage any unnecessary printing. Any paper waste that is produced is recycled using the local collection service. We also encourage staff to buy unpackaged products where possible.

4 Work Practises: We have embedding video and virtual meetings in our workflows to materially – and permanently – reduce all forms of travel; We have also moved to a permanent work from home policy whereby we also moved from desktop PC's to laptops, which can use up to 65% less power and have automatic sleep modes to save energy;

5 Transport: We aim to have all employees travelling to and from work by use of either public transport, pedestrian access, or by bicycle. Where staff are required to attend client meetings, public transport or access by foot is strongly encouraged where possible. Where public transport is not available, staff will be permitted to use the most environmentally friendly taxi service currently available.

6 Goods & Services: The Huntsman Group Limited aims to work with our supply chain and clients to ensure our environmental policies are aligned as closely as possible.

7 All Huntsman Group staff will take direct responsibility to uphold the Environmental Policy set out to ensure a more sustainable place of work. We aim to be fully accredited by ISO: 14001 within the next year of operation and to consult regularly with The Carbon Trust (UK) to ensure we are doing everything we can to minimise our impact on the environmental, both locally and as a whole.

Through other forms of environmental investment, we will take part in schemes deemed carbon neutral, or reducing where possible.


We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 5.46 tCO2e by 2030. This is a reduction of 50%


Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:


Carbon Reduction Projects


Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2022 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equate to 5.46 tCO2e, a 50%ge reduction against the 2022 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:

• Renewable energy sources for all employees homes

• Electric car use, should we need to have company travel.

Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard[1] and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting[2].

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[3].

This Carbon Reduction Plan has been reviewed and signed off by the board of directors (or equivalent management body).
