Greenhouse gas emission
|119 KtC02e||117 KtC02e|
Greenhouse gas emissions - This measures our annual net greenhouse gas emissions in ktCO2e.
We are targeting a reduction from 133 ktCO2e in 2015-16 to 119 ktCO2e in 2019-20 compared to a performance of 148 ktCO2e in 2014-15. As a large proportion of this is driven by the CO2e emissions from grid electricity, a factor that is outside our control, there is no financial ODI associated with this measure.
For 2019-20 greenhouse gas emissions were 117 kilotonnes carbon dioxide equivalent, which is better than our target of 119 kilotonnes carbon dioxide equivalent. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint: key examples in recent years include the preventative aspects of catchment management, extensive energy efficiency work, and investment in food waste digestion which provides electricity consumed by regulated activity.
We have met this target for the last four of the five years of this regulatory period, which puts us in a good position to work towards the industry target of net zero operational carbon emissions by 2030.
