Our path to net zero

IIC’s overarching aim as an organisation is to minimise its carbon footprint as far as practicably possible. We have set 2030 as a deadline for Scope 1 and 2 emissions with Scope 3 emissions for 2050 - this feels like a long target, however, IIC will seek to eliminate or reduce emissions as soon as possible.

Baseline reporting

We are pleased to be able to report on our carbon use for Q1-Q2 for financial year 2021 / 22 – which will be our baseline year. We are calculating staff and contractor home working energy use as well as carbon emissions associated with the website. We are also reporting on travel and attendance at COP26 in Glasgow. A carbon impact assessment will be included in the full year report to cover the office move, online events, and publications. Where calculations are based on assumptions these are clearly indicated.
