Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Our Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Targets

Currently all of our medical equipment deliveries are made based on the most economical carbon-neutral basis (if possible, depending on volume and delivery expectations) by using underbelly availability of flights already scheduled. Air freight indeed must be used for the urgent transportation of medical supplies due to its speed. However, shipping by sea can be a more cost-effective option for less time-sensitive shipments, especially if clients plan ahead and are organised. It allows for larger quantities of supplies to be transported at once, reducing transportation costs. Additionally, shipping by sea has less impact on the environment compared to air freight.
By 2030, we pledge to work closely with our clients to plan and organise any regular deliveries effectively, so that all regular shipments can be made via sea freight. Saving our clients money, and saving the planet along the way.

As a company, Kudu Spectrum has already switched to working on a fully remote basis after the pandemic with no reduction in performance. This has completely cut our employee commuting emissions. We pledge to continue this type of working style, and not return to an office. We will make use of online video conferencing means where possible, and only travel where necessary.

Scope 1

Direct emissions from the combustion of fuel in assets that a company operates, such as fuel emissions from company-owned cars, diesel generators, gas boilers and air-conditioning leaks.

Scope 2

Indirect emissions from the generation of energy purchased from a utility provider, such as heating, cooling, steam, and electricity.

Scope 3 

All indirect greenhouse gas emissions that do not fall under scope 2 – upstream and downstream. We have included upstream emissions from purchased goods and services, capital goods, upstream transport and distribution, and business travel, calculated from our expenses.
