Future Carbon Reduction Project Waste Disposal Alpha uses sustainable alternatives, recycled and plastic free products whilst also committing to recycling as much waste as possible. Alpha continuously reviews existing materials and packaging to reduce and replace where possible with more sustainable alternatives. The type and quantity of waste produced from Alpha’s operations will be monitored and recorded to ease the introduction of waste reduction measures. Electricity Generation Alpha Laboratories intends to harness renewable energy through the implementation of various technologies, including the installation of solar panels (2023). This will reduce electricity emissions as well as reliance on the national grid. Alpha has invested in Electric Vehicle charging points as well as the addition of an E-transit Van (2023) to cover local deliveries, reducing the reliance on fossil fuel-based courier services. Case study 2: Phasing out fossil fuels Actions: Alpha installed a new, more efficient boiler and the proactive electrification of current systems. Outcomes: Our natural gas accounted for 14.33 tCO2e in the 2018-19 financial year and has been reduced to 5.72 tCO2e in the 2021-22 year. This is a 60% reduction is natural gas usage. 22
