Working with the ESA

Ricardo is supporting the Environmental Services Association (ESA) on its net-zero journey. Having evaluated the different carbon accounting methodologies, we are now producing the first comprehensive sector emissions baseline to help the ESA gain a better understanding of the waste sector’s Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

Through a working group, we are providing support to help the ESA draft its net-zero strategy, which will be based on our proven five-step roadmap to net zero. Our roadmap is helping clients across diverse sectors (such as the NHS, water companies, emergency services, local authorities and waste companies) to achieve their net-zero goals.

The five-step process is:

  1. Understanding your current emissions
  2. Setting targets and pathways
  3. Net zero feasibility
  4. Carbon management plan
  5. Funding and implementation
