We want Sense to be carbon neutral by 2040. This means reducing the amount of carbon we’re releasing into the atmosphere as much as we possibly can.
To reach this goal, we need to make changes to Sense services, residential homes and charity shops.
About half of our carbon output comes from these buildings and from our vehicle fleet.
We’re going to cut this output to a minimum. We’ll look for alternative, greener ways of powering our properties and our fleet. We’ll invest in electric vehicles. And where we can’t cut back, we will aim to offset our carbon output.
Right now, we’ve started the process of carrying out energy audits on our buildings, to check how energy-efficient they are.
Based on these findings, we’re starting to make changes like:
We’ve also begun the process of buying electric vehicles to replace our old cars.
Following the energy audits on our properties, we’re going to keep rolling out these energy-efficient changes.
We’ll also decommission the diesel cars in our fleet. We’re aiming to replace our 185 vehicles with electric counterparts, and install electric car charging points at our properties, over the next 12 years.
