Step 1: Understanding Our Carbon Footprint
To know where we need to go, we first have to understand where we stand. That’s why Forge Lift Services undertaken a comprehensive carbon audit to gauge the breadth and depth of our carbon emissions. This audit, taking into account both direct and indirect emissions, has provided us with a clear baseline from which we can measure our future progress.
Step 2: Setting Our Sights on Sustainability
Using our carbon audit’s insights, we have set ourselves ambitious, yet achievable, carbon reduction targets. These goals, which align with the Paris Agreement’s objective to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, serve as our guiding light in this important journey
Step 3: Charting the Course
How do we reach our carbon reduction targets? Through a multifaceted approach that leaves no stone unturned:
- Energy Efficiency: We’re integrating energy-efficient technologies and practices throughout our operations, including the incorporation of efficient lift components.
- Renewable Energy: We’re investing in renewable energy sources, reducing our reliance on traditional, carbon-intensive energy.
- Green Fleet: We’re upgrading our vehicle fleet to include electric and hybrid models, reducing emissions related to transportation.
- Waste Management: We’ve implemented robust recycling programs and are committed to reducing waste in all areas of our business.
- Employee Engagement: We believe every member of the Forge Lifts family has a role to play in this transition. We’re engaging our employees in carbon reduction initiatives and educating them about the vital importance of sustainability.
Step 4: Offsetting Our Impact
We recognize that not all emissions can be eliminated, so we’re committed to offsetting those that remain. We’re investing in certified projects that reduce, avoid, or remove greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a healthier planet.
Step 5: Keeping Ourselves Accountable
We’re committed to complete transparency throughout this journey. That’s why we’re keeping a close eye on our progress, reporting regularly on our achievements, and having our results independently verified.
Step 6: Continuous Improvement
Our journey doesn’t end when we reach carbon neutrality. We believe in continuous improvement, in always striving for better. We’ll constantly seek new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and adjust our plan as needed.
