We are all directly responsible for determining the future of the environment on which we, and all other forms of life, depend. What we do in the next decade to limit emissions will be critical to our future, as climate change directly impacts people, businesses, governments and the natural environment.

As a responsible business partner and employer, ElectraLink takes climate change and our commitments under the Pledge to Net Zero seriously. These are non-negotiable targets that we must all work together to achieve for the good of our planet and future generations.

ElectraLink commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year. ElectraLink also commits to reduce absolute Scope 3 emissions by 30% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.

Dan Hopkinson, CEO

In 2021, we established a project team to look at how we, as an organisation, can achieve net zero targets, implement decarbonising initiatives and raise awareness among colleagues on actions we can all take to reduce emissions and protect our planet.

Certified Carbon Neutral


As of March 2023, we are officially carbon neutral for a second year – as certified by Carbon Neutral Britain.

Our Emissions

As an SME with well-rehearsed remote working capabilities and high standards for our site facilities, our emissions primarily come from business travel and office electricity consumption. For full accountability of our operating emissions volume, on top of these sources, we have captured data on carbon emitted directly from commuting and home-working.


The Pledge to Net Zero encourages signatories to set targets in line with the Paris Agreement using science-based methods. Based on analysis of our emissions, we were able to achieve net zero emissions in March 2022 and will continue to reduce our emissions hereafter.

In addition to this, we commit to:

  1. Set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C (encouraged) or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum.
  2. Publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against this target each year.
  3. Publish one piece of research/thought-leadership each year on practical steps to delivering an economy in line with climate science and in support of net zero carbon. Alternatively, signatories may choose to provide mentoring and support for smaller signatory companies in setting targets, reporting and meeting the requirements of the pledge.

Based on data from our suppliers and employees, ElectraLink set science-based targets in 2022 in line with the Paris Agreement’s aims. As of January 2023, we are ahead of our annual reduction target.

Reaching Net Zero

ElectraLink works with internal and external stakeholders to implement a plan of action for reaching our net zero goals across all business areas. Carbon Action – a carbon services consultancy – provided the knowledge and resources we needed to deliver a net zero plan.

All our emissions management complies with ISO14065 and the GHG Protocol.

Based on best practice and data-led assessment of the whole business, we have established a plan with two key approaches:

Our dedicated Net Zero team have established three core principles for our net zero efforts: Reduce, Educate and Improve. These apply in our offices and while employees are working from home.
We will continue to transition to carbon neutral product and service providers, further reducing emissions in our supply chain.
To offset our carbon emissions since 2020, we are supporting several organisations operating in countries including India, Chile and Mongolia to support the global effort to reduce, capture and store carbon. These organisations provide support, training and funding, and engage with governments, local authorities and communities.
