Little Havens Garden

Environmental Impact

The Havens Hospices Climate Change Strategy will capture our commitment to reducing our emissions of global warming gases and provide a framework for managing the changes needed across the entire organisation. Every action will deliver results for our community, the environment and the planet.   

Our ambition is to achieve nett zero carbon emissions by 2030 

The charity has a dedicated group of colleagues who come together regularly, to discuss ways we can make energy savings and has ownership of the Climate Change Strategy.  

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) 

Under the Companies (Directors’ Report) and Limited Liability Partnerships (Energy and Carbon Report) Regulations 2018, Havens Hospices is mandated to disclose our UK energy use and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As a minimum Havens Hospices is required to report those GHG emissions relating to natural gas, electricity and transport fuel, as well as an intensity ratio under the Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) Regulations.

The period covered under the report for the purposes of the Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting Regulations is the last Havens Hospices financial year, 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.

Scope of report

The scope covered under this report includes:

  • Permanent premises-related energy use – natural gas consumption (scope 1), UK electricity (scope 2) and energy-related transmission & distribution (scope 3).
  • Transport – Fuel purchased for rented vehicles by Havens Hospices (Scope 1) and private staff and volunteer business mileage paid through expenses (Scope 3).

Quantification and reporting methodology 

Havens Hospices has complied with ESOS Phase 3 and has established internal methodology for collating energy and transport usage data. In assessing which GHG emissions to report on for the purposes of SECR, Havens Hospices has followed the 2013 (updated 2019) UK Government environmental reporting guidance and has used the 2019 UK Government GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting in the calculation of reported figures.

Energy efficiency actions and targets  

Havens Hospices continues to pursue energy saving initiatives such as investing in LED lighting whenever practical.

The electricity supply at both Fair Havens and Little Havens had previously moved to 100% renewable sources from October 2021 and January 2022 respectively. The charity has now also moved its gas supply at Fair Havens to 100% renewable sources from August 2022.
