Our journey to addressing climate change
Our commitment to science based targets
We contribute to eight of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and operationalise principles of the UN Global Compact and in October 2021 we formally committed to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Our commitment is:
- Reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions 46.2% by FY2030/31from a FY2019/20 base year.
- Increase annual sourcing of renewable electricity from 74% to 90% by FY2025/26
- Reduce absolute scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions 27.5% by FY2030/31
Scope 3 emissions have been measured for verified for the first time in FY 2021/22 and we have already achieved a 44% reduction in scope 1 and 2.
For disclosure about our greenhouse gas emissions, please refer to our to 2019/20, and 2021/22 annual reports.
