We will achieve net zero carbon operations by 2030
We plan to reduce our direct carbon emissions (known as Scope 1 and 2 emissions) by at least 75%.
We will reduce our total energy consumption by 50% by 2030
While we already use 100% renewable electricity, we still need to reduce the amount of power we consume overall to support the UK in meeting an increasing demand for renewable energy.
We will maintain travel emissions below 50% of pre-COVID-19 levels
We want to embed the reduced levels of commuting and business travel emissions we saw during the pandemic – and support our colleagues to switch to low carbon modes of transport.
We also have broader environmental ambitions for our own operations, which focus on reducing waste and improving water efficiency. These include:
We will reduce our operational waste by 80% by 2025, from a 2014/15 baseline
We will reduce water consumption by 40% by 2030, from a 2009 baseline
