Oplo’s Initial Footprint Reporting: Building strong foundations for Powering the Potential of our Planet

Home > Blog > Oplo’s Initial Footprint Reporting: Building strong foundations for Powering the Potential of our Planet

Creating a positive social impact is a big part of why Oplo exists– powering people’s potential, our customers’ potential and our planet’s potential. Ensuring we are building an environmentally conscious business that gives back to our communities as we grow is a key part of this.  We are committed and intensely focused on implementing ways to help us become carbon neutral by the end of financial year 2021/22.

As part of this commitment, we commissioned an independent carbon assessment report to help identify both our progress and path to achieving our carbon neutral goal.  This report calculates Oplo’s energy usage, associated emissions, energy efficiency actions and energy performance – in essence, this provides a baseline and starting point, from which we can measure the success of the many initiatives we have in place to quantify Oplo impact in relation to our carbon footprint as a business, and of individual Oplo people.

We are really pleased with the initiatives we have put in place already, and are excited about the introduction of further initiatives we have planned for the coming year.  We are committed to year-on-year improvements in our operational energy efficiencies, specifically in continuing the good progress made with our Renewable Electricity Procurement, Tree Planting Projects, Electric Vehicle Initiatives, LED Lighting Refurbishments, Sustainable Working Policies.  Looking ahead to the coming year, these initiatives will be strengthened with the introduction of further programmes including the Energy Efficiency Review, Carbon Action Programme and our staff engagement programme:  ‘The Green Deal’.

Commenting on the report, Chief People Officer Steve McNicholas said:

“This report is a really useful tool to benchmark our carbon footprint as it stands today, and will help us to accurately measure the progress we make in the coming months and years.  Oplo and our team of Oplo people are intensely focused on creating positive social impact for our customers, our people and our community and we are intensely focused on extending this impact to our planet.  We know that many of our customers and people care deeply about their individual and collective carbon footprint and I am delighted to see the rapid acceleration of our progress and plans.”
