Speedy maps out net-zero route

Speedy Hire is to publish a carbon net-zero roadmap as part of its Decade to Deliver strategy in July. 

The company was the first in the hire industry to publicly sign up to science-based net-zero targets, as reported on the blog in January, and has set a deadline to achieve net-zero across all ‘Scopes’ by 2040, ten years before the government’s deadline.  

The roadmap will set out clear steps to reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 50 per cent  and Scope 3 emissions by 42 per cent by 2030. (The Scopes were explained in an earlier item on the blog here.) 

Amelia Woodley, Speedy’s ESG Director, said: “The announcement of government support for the CO2nstructZero net-zero roadmap from Minister of State Nusrat Ghani on 6 June [as reported here] 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,” she added.
