www.alphalabs.co.uk/sustainability www.alphalabs.co.uk/sustainability At Alpha we continuously work towards reducing our direct emissions and are actively engaging with our supply chain to further reduce our Scope 3 emissions. With our commitment of reaching operational Net Zero by 2040, we have implemented several carbon reduction projects across our operations. We began by conducting energy efficiency audits across our site to identify opportunities where we can improve the sustainability of our operations and reduce our emissions. We have focused on improving the energy efficiency within our buildings and ensuring the transition to a fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles. Our Commitment to Net Zero Alpha Laboratories is committed to achieving operational Net Zero Carbon emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2), by 2040 or sooner. The company is also focused on reaching Net Zero Carbon for its broader organisational emissions (Scope 3), by 2045 or sooner. Alpha Laboratories’ Carbon Reduction Projects Include: Retrofit/ Office Refurbishment Installation of skylights in our warehouse to reduce the need for artificial lighting and upgrades to LED lighting across our site. Building refurbishment includes new roofing and cladding, this greatly improves the insulation of the building, increasing energy efficiency. Business Travel Our fleet contains strictly Electric and Hybrid vehicles, including the purchase of an E-transit Van. We published a new company policy on Sustainable Business Travel, this helps review the needs and methods of our business travel, opting for more sustainable options when possible. Waste Disposal We continuously review all our packaging materials and investigate potential sustainable alternatives, where we can reduce or replace materials. We work to reduce our reliance on paper as we move to incorporate more electronic based processes. Renewable Energy The installation of solar panels reduces our dependency on the National Grid, we are hoping to generate up to 98% of our consumption in the summer months. We maintain a Green Tariff for any remaining electricity consumption, supporting the progress of renewable energies. Refrigerant Gases Continue to monitor and maintain systems to minimise refrigerant gas leakages. We review opportunities to replace current gases with those with lower Global Warming Potential (GWP).
