1.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: 2022
Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
Ovidius Medical Ltd has no prior scope emissions reporting. 2022 will be the baseline report – with an annual review
Baseline year emissions:
Ovidius Medical Ltd are a third-party distributor and therefore do not own any machinery for production purposes.

In the Company’s mission to be an energy efficient Company our employees are remote workers and Ovidius Medical Ltd do not own facilities nor vehicles.

Therefore, no data is required for submission for scope one.
As a third-party distributor Ovidius Medical ltd does not produce indirect emissions from the generation of heat, steaming or cooling from manufacturing plants and/or offices.

Energy used to power the third-party warehouse are included as part of the lease agreement and so cannot report these.

Electric and heating for the remote and work from home employees – laptops, computers, and phones, as well as lighting, food and drink preparation equate emissions.

Total estimate CO2 1.5 t per annum calculated using the examples of energy consumption in the “How to measure the carbon impact of working from home report”.
Scope 3

Indirect Emissions from Other sources
As a third-party distributor we do not produce or own any capital equipment, nor the waste associated with these business activities.

Remote working eliminates the need for the daily commute so Ovidius Medical Ltd is not reporting any emissions for commuting.

Waste generation in operations. We do not have specific data on waste generated as an organisation as this is managed as part of the lease agreement with the warehouse facility.

As a medical device distributor, we utilise third party courier for transportation of goods. This is calculated at: CO2 32t per annum in 2022, this is inclusive of upstream and downstream transportation.

For business travel for employees the emissions in 2022 are calculated at CO2 29.5 t

As a third-party distributor we import goods from global suppliers, currently do not have visibility to the upstream production emissions of our suppliers.
Total Emissions
63 tCO2e

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

The following environmental management measures and projects have been completed or implemented since the 2022 baseline.

· Ovidius Medical Ltd is a paperless Company, we no longer provide any customer brochures, and all customer communication is electronic. All internal documents and communications are also paperless.

· Plastic reduction – employees that travel on customer visits take water bottles and reusable coffee cups to reduce the number of emissions from producing plastic.
