Stark have officially joined the UK Government’s SME climate hub and the United Nations’ Race to Zero campaign.

In doing so we commit to deliver a greenhouse gas reduction target in line with global efforts to limit warming to 1.5 ̊C. Carbon outputs are divided into three scopes, relevant to different levels of influence a company has, scope one: direct fuel usage (gas, petrol, etc.), scope two: electricity source (fossil fuels or renewables), scope three: companies and organisations interacted with.

Stark’s target is to reduce emissions from scope one and two by 90% in comparison to the pre-pandemic levels in 2019, by 2025, as well as Net Zero, including reducing scope three emissions by 50%, by 2030.

A target is nothing without a plan. Stark is taking practical steps to reach our goal including the decarbonisation of our fleet, investing in renewables, and offering electric vehicle solutions for customers and employees.

In the process of developing our Net Zero strategy, establishing a plan proved challenging. Understanding and sourcing complex data was essential for building a baseline and highlighting areas that could be significantly improved with minimal disruption and investment.

From here Stark arrived at a pragmatic plan which is both realistic and practical.

Our Net Zero journey began long before our pledge, green considerations have always been at the heart of Stark’s ethos. For years, Stark have been using a green energy tariff and running annual initiatives to identify and reduce energy waste in the offices.

In 2021, Stark launched our EV charging points solution, Stark Charge, contributing to improving national infrastructure to assist the adoption of electric vehicles. We are future proofing our business, and the world, whilst continually developing our products to enable others to reduce their use.

This is not just about Stark’s Net Zero journey, but also yours.

For 40 years, Stark has supported businesses and organisations to minimise their energy usage through monitoring and analysis, because ultimately, the greenest kWh is the one you don’t use.

And, by collectively reducing our carbon emissions in scope one and two, the carbon in the remit of scope three will fall naturally.
