Description

  • Commit to a 1.5ºC sciencebased  target across our own operations by 2030, reducing our emissions by at least 42% in this time period (vs. FY20 baseline).
  • Engage with 67% of our suppliers by emissions, covering purchased goods and services and capital goods, with the objective of them having science-based targets by the start of 2026.
  • Our ultimate aim is to achieve net zero emissions across our value chain by 2050. We recognise we cannot do this alone, so will collaborate and partner with our suppliers, vendors and customers to work towards a net zero future.

Priorities for the next 12 months:

  • Make the switch to 100% renewable energy suppliers.
  • Complete roll out of LED lighting and Building Management Systems across our estate, looking to identify and act upon new energy efficiency measures.
  • Engage with suppliers to gather more data on their emissions, educate them on the importance of reducing emissions and support them in setting their own science-based targets.
  • Develop a set of sustainable procurement criteria for all tenders and decisions.
  • Preparation for reporting against the TCFD framework.
