Carbon Reduction Plan

Supplier name: IDNA Genetics Limited t/a Anglia DNA Services
Publication date: 12.02.2024

Commitment to achieving Net Zero
Anglia DNA Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2035.

Our path to net zero carbon has been developed as part of our continued commitment to the environment and building a sustainable business. Our approach to achieving net zero follows a four-step process:

In 2023, following easing of restrictions brought about by the global pandemic and with the business returning to pre-pandemic levels after a sizeable increase in laboratory testing, we undertook to review all carbon emissions reporting processes and data to form a robust baseline from which to set interim targets.

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: 2023
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations
Our organisation has not previously assessed or reported emissions, and therefore our baseline year will be our first reporting year. In addition, 2020, 2021 and 2022 were skewed years terms of our carbon footprint as we conducted a significant number of laboratory Covid-19 PCR tests with marked increase in staff, and we have since undergone substantial organisational change and restructuring.
Baseline year emissions:
Scope 1 7.04
Scope 2 35.21
Scope 3 45.49
Total Emissions 87.73

Current Emissions Reporting

Reporting Year: 2023
Scope 1 7.04
Scope 2 35.21
Scope 3 45.49
Total Emissions 87.73

Emissions reduction targets
In order to achieve Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets. We have targeted a 15 tCO2 e annual reduction, and therefore project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 12 tCO2e. This is a reduction of 86%.

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

Carbon Reduction Projects

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented recently and the measures will be in effect when performing the contract.

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

We actively encourage staff to carshare where possible and several of our employees are located within the local area and opt to commute with zero emissions, and several more opt to commute via public transport. Other initiatives include:

At Anglia DNA, we are committed towards achieving net zero across all three greenhouse gas emission scopes. The targets we have set ourselves are ambitious, however we are resolved to achieving them through making real reductions in carbon without placing significant emphasis on offsetting, and instead focusing on energy reduction and energy efficiency measures. We are exploring the creation of an offsetting standard that ensures our business reflects our efficiency commitment and only offsets carbon within UK borders using credible and transparent schemes.
Anglia DNA also hopes that future technological advances in energy saving and reduction schemes, will positively impact our Net Zero ambition

Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard and uses the appropriate Government emission
conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting. Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.

This Carbon Reduction Plan has been reviewed and signed off by the Management Team in Anglia DNA.
