Reducing our carbon footprint
We have a robust approach to carbon reduction and mitigation. We monitor our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions through a proprietary carbon dashboard, and pay particular attention to business travel, which accounts for over 85% of our total footprint.
Our short-term target of reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 46% by 2029/30 is approved by SBTi and we are well on track to meet this; and to meet our voluntary, more ambitious target of reducing total emissions by 50% by 2024/25. In 2022/23 we invested funds raised by an internal carbon levy in verified carbon removal credits to neutralise 100% of those emissions which we cannot yet reduce.
Our carbon reduction plans are accredited by the Science Based Targets initiative.
