Net zero re-baselining completed following Bermondsey purchase


Powerday has undertaken our first re-baselining process for our Scopes 1 and 2 net zero target following our acquisition of Economic Skips in 2023.

We announced a target to reach net zero  for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040 in March 2023, relative to a 2021 baseline, with interim goals of a 20% reduction in 2023, 35% by 2026 and 50% by 2030.  We set out a clear roadmap and have been making good progress against this target.  We transitioned six of our sites to renewable electricity tariffs in 2022 and 2023, installed solar panels at Old Oak Sidings, leased, and started operating, our first two electric skip vehicles and introduced electric cars into our company car fleet.  We exceeded our first interim target (20% reduction by 2023) with a 25% reduction by the end of last year.  

In September 2023, we acquired Bermondsey-based company Economic Skips Limited as part of our growth strategy, further expanding our London coverage. Understanding the implications for our net zero strategy, following this acquisition, we undertook a re-baselining process in line with GHG Protocol and Science Based Targets guidance.  As a result of this, we have incorporated the Scope 1 and 2 carbon footprint of Economic Skips into our baseline and ensuing years, and have started to include this in our carbon reporting. 

Edward Crossan, CEO, Powerday says: “We have ambitious growth plans yet we don’t want this to be at the cost of the planet.  We fully recognise the climate emergency and the urgent need for climate action.  We are ensuring that our efforts to reduce our carbon emissions, and report on these, are in line with best practice.  Our team has completed this re-baselining process, with external support, in line with this.”

We have developed a clear re-baselining policy in line with best practice and created a record of our re-baselining decisions (this information is available on request).  We purchased our eighth site, at Croydon, also in 2023 but, as this represents organic growth, this falls outside of our re-baselining policy.
