Re:Cognition Health are global experts in the diagnosis, treatment and care of Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive impairments. Across six centres in the UK and the US, doctors provide the highest standard of care to patients using cutting-edge technology and equipment. Re:Cognition came to Minimum to learn more about the environmental impact of their centres and how it could be improved, particularly in-relation to the operating of energy-hungry medical equipment like MRI scanners.
Re:Cognition Health uses Minimum's self-service office tool to calculate and monitor their carbon footprint across of each of their six centres. After only 20-30 minutes of data collection and input, Re:Cognition received a full breakdown of their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions across each of their centres and areas of business operations. What's more, by noting any changes in their emissions data each month, Re:Cognition tracks how changes in their business activity is reflected in their footprint.
As anticipated given their heavy-duty medical equipment like MRI scanners, electricity usage was a key contributor, making up 71% of total emissions. This provided Re:Cognition with a clear direction for their emissions reduction strategy, coupled with the ability to measure the impact of any new initiatives.
To take care of their remaining emissions, Re:Cognition offsets with Minimum's balanced portfolio of best-in-class carbon removal and prevention projects. Our portfolio is meticulously constructed in-line with the Oxford Principles and comprises only of the most highly certified projects, uncompromisingly selected using data-driven criteria. As a result, Re:Cognition has complete assurance that their offsets have long-lasting, positive impact that satisfies the most stringent environmental guidelines and regulatory requirements.
