Where an In-Scope Organisation has determined that the measure applies to the procurement, suppliers wishing to bid for that contract are required at the selection stage to submit a Carbon Reduction Plan which details their organisational carbon footprint and confirms their commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2050.

Carbon Reduction Plans are to be completed by the bidding supplier1 and must meet the reporting requirements set out in supporting guidance, and include the supplier’s current carbon footprint and its commitment to reducing emissions to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050.

The CRP should be specific to the bidding entity, or, provided certain criteria are met, may cover the bidding entity and its parent organisation. In order to ensure the CRP remains relevant, a Carbon Reduction Plan covering the bidding entity and its parent organisation is only permissible where the detailed requirements of the CRP are met in full, as set out in the Technical Standard2 and Guidance3, and all of the following criteria are met:

  • The bidding entity is wholly owned by the parent;
  • The commitment to achieving net zero by 2050 for UK operations is set out in the CRP for the parent and is supported and adopted by the bidding entity, demonstrated by the inclusion in the CRP of a statement that this will apply to the bidding entity;
  • The environmental measures set out are stated to be able to be applied by the bidding entity when performing the relevant contract; and
  • The CRP is published on the bidding entity’s website.

Bidding entities must take steps to ensure they have their own CRP as soon as reasonably practicable and should note that the ability to rely on a parent organisation’s Carbon Reduction Plan may only be a temporary measure under this selection criterion. The Carbon Reduction Plan should be updated regularly (at least annually) and published and clearly signposted on the supplier’s UK website. It should be approved by a director (or equivalent senior leadership) within the supplier’s organisation to demonstrate a clear commitment to emissions reduction at the highest level. Suppliers may wish to adopt the key objectives of the Carbon Reduction Plan within their strategic plans.

A template for the Carbon Reduction Plan is set out below. Please complete and publish your Carbon Reduction Plan in accordance with the reporting standard published alongside this PPN.

Luye Pharma Ltd is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050. 

Baseline Emissions Footprint 

Baseline emissions are a record of the greenhouse gases that have been produced in the past and were produced prior to the introduction of any strategies to reduce emissions. Baseline emissions are the reference point against which emissions reduction can be measured.

Baseline Year: 1 July 2022 – 30 June 2023

Emissions reduction targets

Luye Pharma Ltd is an expanding business with new products and employees planned which will be a challenge initially in carbon reduction. Luye are committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050 and will work towards limiting carbon emissions during this expansion.

Carbon Reduction Projects

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented prior to the 2022/23 baseline.

Scope 1

Company Facilities: Luye Pharma Ltd are a homebased Company with office space leased on The Surrey Research Park who have prepared a sustainability plan and target of Carbon Net Zero by 2030.

They continue to improve their facilities this includes the list of interventions below;

  • The installation of LED lighting
  • occupancy/motion sensors
  • air source heat pumps (ASHP)
  • heat recovery and the removal of fossil fuel heating systems.

These interventions have helped achieve the improved performance of their buildings to 85% now achieving an EPC rating of A-C.

Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) charging points are available on site.

This data would be reported by The Surrey Research Park and will be excluded from this to avoid double reporting.

Company Vehicles: we do not have any company vehicles, so there are no
emissions from this category included in our emissions data

Scope 2

Purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling for own use: we don’t purchase
any of the energy needed for our buildings as they are all leased and are covered
by the landlord.

Scope 3

Category 4 and 9 upstream and downstream distribution

Over recent months we have reviewed Supply forecasts with intention to consolidate deliveries of product to pre-wholesaler going forward for current and new product launches.

We have been working with main wholesaler to maintain minimum stock levels and to optimise deliveries from pre wholesaler. 

An ESG statement from our pre-wholesaler is current in progress for future CRP’s. 

Category 5 waste generated in operations 

All outers/shippers/shrink wrap is recycled by Pre-wholesaler. 

Pallets are reused by pre-wholesaler unless damaged, any damaged pallets are returned to their supplier to be recycled. 


Folding box and leaflet: no recycled paper is used 

Label: the pulp for this paper comes from FSC® certified forest management. 

Category 6 business travel – 2 employees + 2 contractors 

Meetings are held via Teams/Zoom with face to face meetings kept to a minimum. 

Travel is via road and air with some hotel stays mainly within the UK with occasional European. 

Category 7 employee commuting – 2 employees 

Luye Pharma Ltd are a homebased Company with office space leased on The Surrey Research Park. Travel to the office is limited with team meetings 6 – 9 times annually. 

Travel is via car. 

In the future we hope to implement further measures such as: 

Scope 2: 

Encourage employees /contractors to use 100% renewable electricity energy suppliers. 

Scope 3: 

Category 4 and 9 upstream and downstream distribution: 

Consolidate supply chain to reduce product shipments to pre wholesaler. 

Continue to work with main wholesaler to maintain/increase minimum stock levels and optimise deliveries from pre-wholesaler, extend to other customers. 

We will continue to partner with logistics suppliers who prioritise their own environmental impact including GEODIS who have an option to adopt their Air & Sea Sustainable Fuel solution 

Category 5 waste generated in operations: 

Integrate sustainability into product packaging and design. 

Category 6 business travel and Category 7 employee commuting 

Maintain Home Working model, where possible limit business travel and commuting, including continued use of video conferencing, to achieve sustainable long-term reduction of our CO2 emissions. 

Employee learning and behaviour change 

Luye Pharma will continue to raise environmental awareness with all employees/contractors; suppliers and customers, encouraging better energy use and reduced waste.
