vThe scope of this presentation can be seen on this slideWill briefly ask the question why organisations address carbon Then move on to a series of case studies 2Why address carbon? Addressing the challenge climate change through reducing emissions is largely driven by risk:

CommercialResponsibilityReputationCompliance Innovation OpportunityCost saving EfficiencyInvestmentReporting

vThere are many reasons organisations chose to address carbon emissionsA headline list of reasons is listed hereIn the case studies following we shall see how each of the organisations was responding to one or more of these3Global Fund total climate change impactsSimilar to any large organisation the Global Fund operations are not without environmental impact. Outline estimates* indicate:

Total Global Fund climate change impact /carbon pollution: 6,479,000 tonnes of CO2e per yearSocial cost of carbon: $194 million of climate change damage is incurred with each year of GF disbursement

*based on studies in three country settings, and 17 Malaria, HIV and TB grants including recent grants under the NFMvBut firstly a summary of the UNDP-GF workTwo studies covering three countries and three disease programmes; Studies undertaken in 2013/2014Taking base grant/programme data and pro-rata upwards shows that the GF is responsible (like any large organisation) for a significant climate change impactThis sits largely in the supply chain it deploys4NHS England: Scale of the challenge

NHS England CO2 Emissions Baseline and Climate Change Act TargetsLargest employer in Europe / annual budget many 10s of bnWhat does the organisation have to do to support a UK carbon reduction of 80% by 2050; + organisational hotspot analysisThe first case study is the NHSHere the drive was a combination of regulation, compliance, responsibility, and drive for efficiencyImportant is also the national context where there is a legal requirement for UK to meet an 80% reduction of carbon emissions by 2050 against a 1990 baselineThe study assessed the carbon footprint of the whole organisation including its supply chainA times series assessment was undertaken and project forward with scenarios for reducing emissions5Priority areas for NHS carbon reduction

Less than a quarter of the carbon budget is running the estateProcurement is 50%Pharmaceuticals the largest contributorKey findings where that the majority of the organisations footprint was in its supply chain (some 60%)The estate and travel where the two other primary contributorsThe production of pharmaceuticals were a major contributor6Strategy for the futureProject looked at potential strategies to meet an interim 26% reduction target in 2020Informed a number of subsequent strategies, i.e. International pharmaceutical and medical device guidelines for carbon footprintingNHS England annual emissions MtCO2eYear

An interim target of 26% reduction by 2020 was establishedInterventions in a range of themed areas were identifiedThus creating a plan for reducing emissionsKey outcomes like developing the pharma and MD guidelines for carbon footprinting have transpiredCreating partnership with the supply chain, action, and innovation7

Highways Agency Carbon Routemap

In this case study we are looking at the English national highways authority: Highway Agency8Working contextCorporate GHG emissions measurement and reportingDeveloped a climate change carbon accounting frameworkCalculator toolsLeadership on supply chain carbon emissions measurementCarbon data analysis and verification review undertaken

# The HA has a robust approach to addressing the challenge of GHG emissionsIt reports emissions corporatelyHas a framework for calculationSupporting toolsWants to lead its supply chainSeeks verificationBut until now the organisation had not really understood the footprint of its entire supply chain, nor did it have a plan to reduce emissions into the future including short, middle and long term targetsThis project established a low carbon Routemap for the HA to 2050



Recommendations report

Strategic carbon Routemap modelling tool

# Project delivered a strategic carbon route mapping toolOver 400 interventions were covered across the estate, the supply chain, and customers (highway users)Recommendations reportPlease see details online10Communication tool

# Reporting and communicating outcomes were also a very important outcome for the HA11Carbon is proxy for use of material and energyReducing carbon has a bigger effect on cost than trying to reduce cost directly!

Carbon reduction is good business sense

Graphic courtesy of Anglian Water Capital Programme#In this final slide we can see how a water utility (clean water provision/ sewage management) has shown that but seeking its suppliers to address both cost and carbon they have delivered projects of small impact and reduced costsThe lessons were that carbon is a proxy for material and energyCarbon reduction acts as a bigger driver on cost reduction rather than just focusing on costIn inspires stakeholders to look at things differently and encourages innovation 12Preliminary investigations completedFirst generation carbon footprint tool for GF-NFM in placeMore details at the Brown Bag talk
