Carbon Reduction Plan

  Chubb is committed to making the world a safer place through fire and security solutions and sustainability initiatives to reduce environmental impact to zero whilst driving a more equitable and inclusive value chain. Our goal is to reduce total Greenhouse Gas emissions in line with a below 2°C future by 2030. Our ambition is to become net zero by 2050. Our Carbon Reduction Plan centres on 4 areas:

  • Fleet
  • Waste
  • Energy and Utilities
  • Supply Chain


  The fleet strategy is to change diesel vehicles to electric/hybrid vehicles by 2030 which will have a significant impact on carbon footprint reducing CO2 emissions by an average of 65%. Lightfoot (a driver aid system) is proven to reduce fuel consumption by 10% which results in reduction of CO2 by 10% for both diesel and hybrid vehicles. Lightfoot was deployed in 2020 across our field-based engineering team. The reduction plan is based on actual CO2 emission data for 2019-2020 across the fleet. Our data is based on changes made as per the categories below:

Waste – Design for Sustainability

  New product development includes analysis of material choices and applications to ensure that any new product adopted into Chubb’s Supply Chain does not result in the need to land fill at the end of its life. Chubb’s aim is to be able to recycle 100% the product and packaging, ongoing development of its core products will include change to recycled materials, less polluting products and processes. Long standing products will be reviewed, and value engineered with our supply chain to ensure that products and spares can be environmentally friendly sustainable. The reduction and withdrawal of single use plastics is a goal within Chubb’s Supply Chain. Chubb recognises the requirements of REACH and work with suppliers to ensure that our products are registered, complaint and will communicate with our customers to ensure that they are receiving a sustainable product and service.

Environmental Recycling Unit (ERU)

The “ERU” Extinguisher or Environmental Recycling Unit operates from the Hams Hall Distribution centre and processes on average 1100 extinguishers a day. 100% of the extinguisher can be recycled into either a renovated extinguisher or broken down and all the parts reused or reprocessed into something else. The remaining small components are used in Waste Energy Recovery.

Energy and Utilities

  Chubb plays a part in de-carbonising the UK energy system by choosing renewable energy. Under our agreement with our electricity supplier, 100% of the electricity supplied to Chubb offices comes from renewable generation sources including wind and solar. The electricity and REGO (Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin) allocation process is independently certified by The Carbon Trust enabling Chubb to report zero carbon emissions for the electricity supplied from 2022. The graph below shows a decrease in our Greenhouse Gas Emissions over the years:

Supply Chain

Warehouse and Distribution at Hams Hall

  At Chubb, we review our Logistics Operations in line with any wider operational changes to the organisation. This is to ensure that we optimise logistics routes in support of GHG reduction. Hams Hall in the Midlands is our current National Distribution Centre and has been mapped against a potential alternative Blackburn location closer to our operational UK HQ. The data showed that the central location is the most optimum to run our national operations. In addition, our 3rd party logistics provider ensures optimum load utilisation using a dedicated mapping software.

Supply Chain – Carbon Offset

We have partnered with our travel company, Agiito, to offset the GHG, created through travel and accommodation.
