21 Completed Carbon Reduction Projects Case study 1: Retrofit/Office Refurbishment Actions: We have replaced the standard roofing with an advanced Trisomet trapezoidal roofing system and upgraded existing lighting to LEDs. Outcome: Alpha’s offices had total emissions of 13.86 tCO2e from electricity consumption in 2021-22, down from 23.42 tCO2e in the 2018-19 financial year. This is a 41% decrease in electricity usage. the following emissions; CO2, CH4, N20, HFCs, PFCs, SF6, and NF6. The baseline GHG emissions footprint for the 2021/22 financial year is presented below. Our carbon footprint for the 21/22 year calculated 3959.92 tCO2e. This works out at 159.65 tCO2e per employee, and 55 tCO2e per £million in turnover. Scope 1 Emissions Alpha’s sources of direct emissions are company vehicle travel, fugitive GHG emissions (Refrigerants) and Natural Gas. Our Scope 1 totalled 30.49 tCO2e. Scope 2 Emissions Alpha’s energy indirect GHG emissions (Electricity) contributed a total of 13.86 tCO2e. Scope 3 Emissions The Scope 3 emissions, which make up 98.9% of total emissions are equivalent to 3914.26 tCO2e. Categories included in scope 3 calculation are as follows: purchased goods and services, well-to-tank, waste and water, business travel, employee commuting and homeworking.
