Provide is delighted to have joined forces with their new Carbon Partner Auditel to deliver their objective of reaching net zero by 2045.

Provide is a Community Interest Company delivering a broad range of health and social care services in the community. We work from a variety of community settings, delivering more than 40 services to children, families, and adults in communities with a total population of more than 4.5 million people.


Provide aim to be a leader in our industry by implementing sustainable practices throughout our operations and value chain, while delivering innovative and environmentally responsible products and services. As a major supplier to the NHS in the communities in which we operate, Provide will assist the NHS in meeting their net zero targets and becoming the world’s first net zero national health service.

Provide – Carbon Targets

  • Achieve net zero by 2045, 5 years ahead of the government 2050 target and aligned with the NHS net zero target date.
  • Reduce our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 50% by 2030 and to zero by 2035.
  • Reduce Scope 3 emissions by 50% by 2035 and to zero by 2045

Philip Richards, Group Chief Finance Officer, comments, “We have been working with Auditel for over a decade so when Lee told me they were offering carbon solutions it seemed to good an opportunity to miss. Knowing the quality of the work Lee has produced for us over the last 10 years gave me every confidence they would be able to deliver the emissions work we required, help develop our Green Strategy and keep us up to date with the ever-changing reporting landscape.”

Auditels Carbon Specialist Lee Freeman comments, “As a major community services supplier to the NHS in Central Essex and beyond, Provide CIC are in a unique position to help the NHS achieve its own net zero target as well as proceeding on their own net zero strategy. It is great to be working with a client who is really looking to make a difference and achieve its own net zero targets. ”
