Carbon Emissions and Carbon Reduction Plan

Sysmex understands that global environmental issues such as climate change require a high-priority response. Our planet faces unprecedented challenges from climate change, and it's imperative that we all play our part in reducing carbon emissions. Sysmex Corporation has also been selected as one of the 2024 Global 100's Most Sustainable Companies in the World, a ranking conducted by Canadian publisher Corporate Knights using approximately 6,700 leading companies across the globe. This is the fifth time that Sysmex has been ranked among the top 100. Sysmex was third in the Health Care Equipment & Supplies sector of the selection.

In order to understand our impact on the environment we must first measure our Carbon Emissions and how they are being produced. Sysmex have followed the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and collate our emissions as per Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions.

Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions

Scope 1 emissions

These include emissions which are produced directly by a company, such as using gas on site or company owned / leased transport.

Scope 2 emissions

These include emissions released into the atmosphere associated with an organisation’s consumption of purchased electricity, heat, steam and cooling.

Scope 3 emissions

Emissions that are indirect activities such as commuting, transport in the supply chain, business travel (including hotel stays), energy used by products sold by a company, treatment of waste generated by a company

Carbon Reduction Plan

In line with PPN06/21 Sysmex UK have compiled and published a Carbon Reduction Plan. This defines our commitment to achieving Carbon Net Zero and outline our strategies, initiatives, and goals aimed at reducing our emissions. The Sysmex UK carbon reduction plan maps out the route to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2040. The company project that carbon emissions will decrease over the next five years to 396 tCO2e, a reduction of 85%. Management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2020 baseline have already achieved reductions that equate to 2,174 tCO2e, an 82% reduction. Emissions have been reported and recorded in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the GHG Reporting Protocol corporate standard and uses the appropriate Government emission conversion factors for greenhouse gas company reporting. Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions have been reported in accordance with SECR requirements, and the required subset of Scope 3 emissions have been reported in accordance with the published reporting standard for Carbon Reduction Plans and the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard.
