Climate Journey

During the course of the last year we have discovered, shared and developed a great deal in regards to our climate journey. Our recent Carbon Neutral PAS 2060 certification from the Carbon Trust is testament to this effort. Moving forward we are continually assessing our ESG commitments and strive for increasingly more sustainable approaches to our work.

  • Carbon Neutral

    alinea consulting LLP is now a Carbon Neutral Organisation.

    We have worked closely with the Carbon Trust to assess our Scope 1, 2 and Scope 3 emissions (business travel, employee commuting, waste generated in operations and home working), footprint in accordance to ISO and have offset through Climate Care’s Gold Standard programme.

    alinea consulting LLP commits to reducing it’s footprint to maintain carbon neutrality for the whole firm in accordance to PAS 2060 for the period until we achieve Net Zero emissions which we have committed to achieve by no later than 2050.

  • Our assessment took account of our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 (Business Travel, Employee Commuting, Waste in General Operations and Homeworking)

    We have offset our footprint with the following programmes, which we are proud to support:-

    • Aqua Clara Project Kenya,
    • GS Renewables,
    • Gyapa Stoves Project, Ghana
    • Akbuk Wind Project, Turkey
