Carbon Reduction Policy Statement

Supplier name: TP Transcription Limited

Publication date: 01/12/2022

Commitment to achieving Net Zero

TP Transcription Limited is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2025. 

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.

Emissions reduction targets

We will be monitoring and measuring all emissions activity. We are a growing business but will be continuing to look at ways to offset any carbon emissions as we expand. We will review the position again in 12 months’ time against our 2021 baseline.
