  • This is how WSP’s PACT scheme works
    • A VOLUNTARY personal carbon trading scheme for staff.
    • Designed and delivered on a highly professional basis
    • We set a 5 TONNE ANNUAL carbon “allowance”
    • Staff track their DIRECT emissions on a quarterly basis on www.wsppact.com
  • Data is managed through a web-based portal
  • Area 1 – home energy consumption
  • Area 2 – cars and vehicle use
  • Area 3 – Commute to work – if it’s on public transport
  • Area 4 – flights, boats, trains, buses
  • This gives a quarterly snapshot of carbon performance
  • This is how WSP’s PACT scheme works
    • A VOLUNTARY personal carbon trading scheme for staff.
    • Designed and delivered on a highly professional basis
    • We set a 5 TONNE ANNUAL carbon “allowance”
    • Staff track their DIRECT emissions on a quarterly basis on www.wsppact.com
    • Staff who are under their allowance receive a bonus payment of 5p per kilo up to £100. Staff who have used more than their allotted share of carbon pay into the scheme.
    • The scheme is based on TRUST - we do not audit the results
    • We’re now establishing a series of PREFERENTIAL AGREEMENTS to help staff reduce carbon at home
  • The Results
    • 1048 staff taking part in the scheme in 2010 in seven countries
    • Staff like it
    • Average 10% reduction in participants’ footprint
    • £1.4 million in advertising value equivalent media coverage in 2009
    • PACT has made a huge difference to WSP’s CR profile in the industry
    • Pioneers’ Group now extending the concept further
  • 1048 staff taking part in the scheme across the world today “ It was initiatives like PACT that made me want to work for a company like WSP – they actually practice what they preach and care about sustainability issues.” Julian Elsworth, Senior Consultant “ As a result of PACT, I was able to see how much carbon I was using on my car. I decided to stop driving to work and I took up cycling instead.” Marie Jones, Consultant “ At home I bought a real time energy meter. This gives me better information on where the energy is actually being used. I am also thinking more about the impact of flights that I take.” Louise Wood, Senior Consultant
  • The Results
    • 1048 staff taking part in the scheme in 2010 in seven countries
    • Staff like it
    • Average 10% reduction in participants’ footprint
    • £1.4 million in advertising value equivalent media coverage in 2009

  • The Pioneer’s Group
    • Established on a not-for-profit basis
    • A ‘CSR programme in a box’. Rolled out in eight weeks
    • We work with you and provide
      • Scheme rules
      • The launch marketing materials
      • Access to the tracking tool
      • Ongoing marcoms support over the year
      • A helpdesk for administrator questions
  • The Learning Points for similar schemes?
    • It’s thinking differently that adds to value
    • Don’t be afraid to take action
    • You won’t have all of the answers to start with – start small and grow the scheme
    • Make it interesting, engaging, and long lived.
  • PACT and other innovative programmes
    • Are well received by staff – and clients.
    • Without a doubt differentiate your company from all the ‘me too’ programmes
    • Make a practical difference
