UN SDGs

Greenhouse Gas Emissions And Energy Efficiency

Why does it matter?

We recognise that greenhouse gases (‘GHG’) are a major contributor to global warming and with CO2 being the most significant of these. We are committed to managing and reducing the Group’s carbon emissions to support the Paris Agreement and wider world objective to limit global warming.

How will we measure progress?

While our longer term commitment is to achieve net zero by 2040, we will measure our near term progress through both reduction in our carbon intensity ratio and the number of tonnes of CO2 removed. Our near term targets are set out below:

Intensity Ratio
