Sustainability

Kromek is committed to reducing its environmental impact to the bare minimum, and establishing sustainable practices, including the dramatic reduction in carbon emissions.

Kromek has established a permanent Sustainability Team to create a concrete Strategy to bring the company to net zero and minimise its impacts wherever possible. In the meantime, the company has made a commitment to net zero no later than 2050, with plans being made to bring this date forward.

We are looking at our facilities, travel habits, supply chains and commercial partners to identify and reduce our environmental impact wherever we can, using the latest technology, and by changing our practices. We are building a business; every part of whose practices are grounded in sustainability principles. We are always looking inside and out for ways to be better, and we engage with our employees to do this.

In the near future, we hope to be able to update this space with information about on-site electricity generation, the reduction or removal of gas-fired systems at our buildings, and much more.

We believe that creating a business which is not only financially sustainable but environmentally sustainable is a necessity for the company and for society. We view sustainability as a fundamental principle on which to build our future business.

Working towards Net Zero carbon emissions

Kromek is committed to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions no later than 2050. We are reviewing this target and will bring it forward in time once we have a sufficiently detailed plan to have confidence that we can achieve a more ambitious goal.

In 2021, Kromek Ltd’s carbon emissions were 985 tons, using all available data. This does not include some aspects of our activities, but covers the majority of our emissions. By 2023, we had managed to reduce this to 845, a reduction of 14%, despite our revenue increasing by 65% over the same period. In addition, this reduction does not account for the fact that we have also started contracts to purchase 100% certified renewable electricity, which reduces our emissions by 522 tons, or a further 53%.

We are continuing our programs to reduce our carbon emissions, and expect to reduce our emissions by a third over the next five years, on our way to net zero.
