Skip to main content

We understand the significant impact that our operations can have on the environment and as such, are committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2040.

We are proud to announce our new carbon reduction plan, which outlines our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable practices. Our plan includes a range of measures encompassing direct greenhouse gas emissions, energy indirect emissions and other indirect emissions that are because of our actions.

By implementing these initiatives, we hope to not only reduce our own carbon emissions but also inspire our customers and service partners to follow suit. We believe that by taking proactive steps towards sustainability, we can make a meaningful difference in protecting our planet for future generations.

Commitment to Achieving Net Zero

DMA Maintenance is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2040.

Baseline Emissions Footprint

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

Scope 1 – Direct GHG Emissions

Includes emissions from activities owned or controlled by DMA that release
emissions into the atmosphere. Examples include emissions from combustion in
owned or controlled boilers, vehicles.

Scope 2 – Energy Indirect Emissions

Includes emissions from own consumption of purchased electricity, heat, steam
and cooling. These are a consequence of the company’s activities but are from
sources not owned/controlled.

Scope 3 – Other Indirect Emissions

Emissions that are as a consequence of our actions, but the source is not owned or
controlled, and which are not classed as Scope 2 Emissions, i.e. business travel in
private cars.

Emissions Reduction Targets

In order to continue our progress to achieving Net Zero, we have adopted the following carbon reduction targets.

We project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 143.88 tCO2e by 2027. This is a reduction of 14.39%.

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

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

No environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2022 baseline as this has only just been completed. In the future we hope to implement further measures such as:

Our 5-year plan contains initiatives to reduce CO2e emissions across scopes 1, 2 and 3, in addition to measures to improve the accuracy of our emissions reporting and forecasting.
