UK-based Speedy Hire is to publish a carbon net-zero roadmap that will outline how it aims to achieve net-zero across all scopes by 2040, ten years ahead of the government deadline.

The roadmap, which will be launched in July as part of its ‘Decade to Deliver’ strategy, will outline clear steps to reduce Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 50% and Scope 3 emissions by 42% by 2030, according to the company.

Amelia Woodley, ESG Director, Speedy Hire said: “The announcement of Government support for the CO2nstructZero net-zero roadmap from Minister of State Nusrat Ghani on Monday 6th June is a welcomed critical step towards decarbonising the industry. 

“It is important that the industry collaborates and agrees on concrete and actionable steps to drive the sustainable and technological ​revolution within the sector.  

“At Speedy, we are accelerating product innovation and decarbonisation solutions in collaboration with our partners, prioritising the long-term vision of sustained net-zero. This is why we have set Science Based Targets to bring us substantially closer to meeting The UK Government’s 2050 net-zero ambitions, in-line with the CO2nstructZero net-zero roadmap”.  

According to Speedy, it is the first company in the hire sector to publicly sign up to science-based net-zero targets. Earlier this year the company was also awarded a Grade B on the Carbon Disclosure Programme (CPD) accreditation.
