OLM Systems contacted Ecometrica with the desire of beginning to track and report on their greenhouse gas emissions as part of their sustainability efforts. As an organisation, OLM Systems prioritises responsible business practices and therefore required a tool which would assist them in tracking, calculating and reporting on their carbon footprint.
OLM Systems were required to comply with UK legislation, Procurement Policy Note 06/21 (PPN 06/21) as they were bidding on UK government contracts worth over £5 million per annum. This meant that OLM Systems was required to record, calculate and report on their scope 1, scope 2 and select scope 3 emissions (upstream transportation and distribution, employee commuting, business travel, waste generated during operations and downstream transportation and distribution) within a Carbon Reduction Plan. To find out more about producing a Carbon Reduction Plan aligned with the requirements as set out in PPN 06/21 you can read our blog post here.
