Environmental risk reduction company Adler and Allan has launched new sustainability services and strategies for customers, and hired a new sustainability manager to lead its green efforts.
Dan Ellis, the new sustainability manager, will work to embed sustainability principles with Adler and Allan’s growth strategy. Ellis was previously the principal sustainability consultant at Delta Simons and has experience in sustainability, carbon reduction and ESG with some of the world’s largest manufacturers, retailers, technology companies and investment funds.
The new services will help customers to understand their environmental impact, decarbonise operations and work towards a sustainable future. They include net-zero strategies and action plans, carbon offsetting, streamlined energy and carbon reporting (SECR), energy audits, transport audits, Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and non-financial disclosures, and environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG).
Adler and Allan has recently launched a sustainability tool which allows users to estimate the carbon emissions of a project. It can show the CO2 emissions associated with all activities required in a project, allowing clients to select from at least two remedial options; one being a reduced carbon alternative. The environmental consultancy team built the tool using conversion factors from the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and is the first of its kind in the industry.
‘Since 2012, we have measured, managed and reported on our carbon footprint via the Carbon Reduce Scheme in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006, achieving gold certification status,’ says Ellis. ‘Over the past five years, we have cut our carbon intensity by over 14% per full-time equivalent (FTE) and realised a 4% reduction in our absolute emissions, despite significant business growth. We are committed to leading the way on achieving net-zero; and using our expertise in energy, fuel, waste, water and ecology to help others to make the world a little better than it was yesterday.’
