Their Story

Demonstrating a commitment to environmental stewardship, Phoenix Energy is driving its Carbon Reduction policy forward. The company has set clear and achievable targets to attain Net Zero goals for Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, including those embedded within their supply chain. Moving from spend based method in 2021 to Improved hybrid and specific methodologies in 2023, Phoenix Energy is leading the way in supplier engagement and accuracy of reporting.

The carbonfit software and platform play an important role in achieving near-term goals and the overarching Net Zero target. This comprehensive solution provides both expertise and technology to streamline data gathering, track progress, and implement effective carbon reduction strategies.

An initial carbon footprint assessment covered all company sites and operations, accounting for Scope 1, 2, and upstream Scope 3 emissions. In collaboration with Phoenix’s sustainability team, staff and suppliers were engaged to ensure clarity and cohesion on carbon reduction targets. Certification and verification processes were successfully completed, establishing the company's baseline carbon footprint.
