Blackstone Pledges To Net-Zero


Blackstone Pledges To Net-Zero

Blackstone Recruitment is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050.

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.

Baseline Year: 1st April 2019 – 30th March 2020

This is Blackstone Recruitments' first report on emissions. The baseline year of 2019/20 was set to more accurately reflect energy use, given the effects of the pandemic, on working practices over the last two years.

Emissions reduction targets

In line with this data and positive alterations, consumption has reduced alongside emission factors.

Committed to working towards Net Zero, Blackstone Recruitment anticipates that it will have completed its Net Zero plan by December 2024 and anticipate being Net Zero by 2050.

We predict that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 55 tCO2e by 2027.

This is a reduction of 25%.

Progress against these targets can be seen in the graph below:

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2019 baseline. The carbon emission reduction achieved by these schemes equates to 73.70 tCO2e, a 21.9%ge reduction against the 2019 baseline and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

Completed carbon reduction projects

·         Flexible working and working from home arrangements made available to the workforce.

·         Changing personal cars by moving to low-emission diesel or electric vehicles.

·         Actively promoting environmentally friendly changes within the office.


In the future, we hope to implement further measures such as:

·         Build awareness amongst our workforce of the impact of their decisions on our journey to net zero.

·         Reduce business travel by air, rail, and road through effective measurement and a sustainable travel policy.

·         Work with Octopus Energy to support employees to switch to electric vehicles.

·         Actively quantify carbon emissions from commuting and working from home and use this as an opportunity to decrease scope 3 emissions via employee engagement.
