Our next steps

We’re building decarbonisation and environmental sustainability into our work plans. Here are some of our planned initiatives for 2023 to 2024:

Our energy use and office space

From July 2023, all our electricity will come from 100 per cent renewable energy tariffs.

From April 2024, we’ll be reducing our office space by 50 per cent reflecting the success of our hybrid working policy.

Our travel and carbon offsetting

From July 2023, our new staff travel policy will prioritise greener forms of travel. Our unavoidable travel and subsistence carbon footprint will be offset by buying carbon credits to support Welsh woodlands.

In September 2023, we will launch a zero-carbon car leasing scheme for staff.

Our supply chain

We will finish moving all our ICT systems to the cloud and reduce our use of external professional advisors.

Our research work

To support the social care sector with decarbonisation and to provide evidence and data around how the sector is responding to the climate crisis, we’re looking into potential research topics in this area.

These include:

  • climate adaptation in social care
  • how social care is responding to the challenges of climate change.
