Each year Sharp Group will measure against its targets for Scopes 1-3 and actively pursue improvements to deliver on our carbon emissions reduction programme. To find out more about our carbon reduction road map, you can download our brochure here.
As an integral part of the fire and security industry’s ecosystem, we will regularly collate the data needed to measure success in reducing Sharp Group’s carbon footprint so that we can reduce the impact of our operations, our building and our supply chain.
Sharp Group is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050:
In this Together - Meeting ambitious environmental targets takes an industry.
Sharp Group is a service-related business where its operations are supported by the buildings in which we work, our modes of transport and our supply chain partners. We will apply our influence to promote sustainable practices from the specification of materials, and appointment of suppliers to decarbonising our business operations.
(Majority Scope 3)
(Majority Scope 1 and 2)
(Majority Scope 1)
(Majority Scope 1 – Vans)
NET ZERO - (Majority Scope 1 – Vans)
Direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by an organisation.
Sharp Group's primary Scope 1 emissions source is via its diesel vans and the use of natural gas. In line with Ireland’s EV infrastructure and strategy, we will transition to high-performing vans from 2030 and over a 10-year period. Over the next five years, we will continue to invest in decarbonisation initiatives like Cloud Forest, where each year our contribution is circa 9.6 tonnes of Co2 negative. We will investigate and set up an appropriate carbon credit plan by the end of 2025.
Covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed by the reporting company.
Sharp Group’s Scope 2 output is primarily driven by the mix of fuel through coal, natural gas, renewables, and oil. Sharp Group will be renegotiating its energy provider in 2025 to switch to more sustainable energy sources.
Operating from a leased office, we have implemented energy-saving measures including efficient lighting and IT management as well as working towards net zero compliance with our supply chain partners.
Includes all other indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain.
Scope 3 is Sharp Group’s lowest contributor to the overall carbon output, however the business has put in place a charter to address the reduction of waste and promote more sustainable business and commuter travel. Our commitment is:
Zero to landfill for all significant equipment such as old PCs
Promote sustainable travel for commuting to and from work
Work with our supply chain to promote high levels of environmental standards
Undertake annual calculations on Scope 3 to measure progress for continuous improvement.
EMISSIONS REDUCTION PLAN
Sharp Group is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
Our Baseline Emissions Footprint is YR 2022. This record of the greenhouse gases has been produced based on the past and before the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions.
As the leading independent fire and security business in Ireland, our response to mitigating negative impacts on the environment is to responsibly measure progress for continuous improvement. In 2024, we will undertake a deep dive into calculating our carbon footprint as per the base year and review successes and challenges to update our annual commitment.
