Carbon Reduction Plan
A Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP) is a strategy or set of actions an individual, organisation, or government takes to reduce and mitigate the environmental impact of carbon emissions. Carbon emissions are primarily produced by burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, which release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to global climate change. By implementing a Carbon Reduction Plan, entities can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, lower their carbon footprint, and promote sustainability. The plan may include energy-efficient practices, adopting renewable energy sources, and implementing waste reduction and recycling programs.
Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP)
Effective Date June 18, 2022
Carbon emissions data at Datasumi Ltd is reported at the company level only. It is therefore reported in Carbon Reduction Plans (CRP) using a calculation based on the entity’s turnover as a proportion of Datasumi Ltd’s turnover: the percentage is then used to calculate the entity’s emissions as a proportion of Datasumi Ltd's emissions. In June 2022, Datasumi Ltd set science-based carbon emissions reduction targets for energy use and business travel in line with global ambitions to limit warming to 1.5°C. All targets referred to in CRPs are derived from Datasumi Ltd targets.
CRPs are prepared for PPN06/21 per its mandated requirements and are not intended to represent Datasumi Ltd’s robust approach to reducing its carbon footprint.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Carbon Reduction Plan? A Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP) is a strategy that outlines how an organisation will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. This plan typically involves energy efficiency improvements, renewable energy projects, and other actions that reduce the organisation’s carbon footprint.
What are the benefits of a Carbon Reduction Plan? By implementing a Carbon Reduction Plan, an organisation can reduce their environmental impact, save money on energy costs, and improve its sustainability. A CRP can also help an organisation meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate its commitment to environmental stewardship.
How can an organisation create a Carbon Reduction Plan? Creating a Carbon Reduction Plan begins with assessing the organisation’s energy usage and emissions. This assessment should include a detailed analysis of the organisation’s energy sources and opportunities for reducing emissions. After the evaluation, the organisation can develop a strategy that outlines specific actions to reduce its emissions.
What types of actions can an organisation take to reduce emissions? There are many actions an organisation can take to reduce emissions, such as improving energy efficiency, transitioning to renewable energy sources, investing in green technologies, and implementing energy management strategies.
How can an organisation measure the success of its Carbon Reduction Plan? An organisation can measure the success of its Carbon Reduction Plan by tracking its greenhouse gas emissions. This can be done by comparing the organisation’s emissions before and after the plan's implementation and monitoring the reduction in emissions over time.
What is the difference between a Carbon Reduction Plan and a Climate Change Plan?
A Carbon Reduction Plan focuses on reducing an organisation’s greenhouse gas emissions, while a Climate Change Plan focuses on mitigating the impacts of climate change. A Climate Change Plan typically includes strategies to reduce emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change.
What are some challenges associated with implementing a Carbon Reduction Plan? Implementing a Carbon Reduction Plan can be challenging due to the costs associated with improving energy efficiency and transitioning to renewable energy sources. Additionally, organisations may need more stakeholder support due to the changes required to reduce emissions.
What types of organisations should create a Carbon Reduction Plan? Every organisation can benefit from creating a Carbon Reduction Plan. However, organisations operating in heavy energy sectors, such as manufacturing and transportation, will benefit the most from having a CRP.
How often should an organisation update its Carbon Reduction Plan? An organisation should review and update its Carbon Reduction Plan at least once a year. This will ensure that the organisation is on track to meet its emissions reduction goals and that any energy usage or emissions changes are considered.
How does an organisation communicate its Carbon Reduction Plan to stakeholders? An organisation can communicate its Carbon Reduction Plan to stakeholders by developing an outreach plan, including presentations, webinars, and public meetings. Additionally, the organisation can create a website or other materials that provide information about the project and its progress.
