RPS Consulting UK & Ireland pledges to Net Zero
17 June 2021 | 1 min read
RPS Consulting UK & Ireland is proud to support and be included in the Pledge To Net Zero initiative which has now surpassed 100 signatories.
Launched in 2019, the scheme is tackling greenhouse gas emissions within the UK’s environmental services sector. Pledge To Net Zero requires signatories to commit in delivering greenhouse gas targets, in line with either a 1.5°C climate change scenario, or well below 2°C.
In February, the Pledge formally joined the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Race to Zero campaign, a move which was welcomed by UN High Level Climate Action Champion for COP26, Nigel Topping.
Tanya Lloyd-Jones at RPS, comments: “Being a signatory for Pledge to Net Zero shows how truly committed we are as a business in our emission efforts. We’re proud to be part of this initiative and it’s fantastic to see so many organisations across many different sectors and industries become involved and put promises into action.”
In addition, RPS is also signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), where 1,000 companies worldwide are leading the zero-carbon transition by setting emissions reduction targets.
As well as our own actions, we are supporting a rapidly growing number of clients with their own journey to net zero.
