Carbon, Energy, and Water

We measure and report on our Electricity, Gas and Fuel consumption annually. Our Carbon Management Plan, published in 2010, sets out a 10 year plan to reduce our Carbon Emissions by 23% by 2020.

Our Carbon Management Strategy supports the Carbon Management Plan and describes the methodologies used to achieve the required emissions reduction targets. The Strategy is in turn supported by the Utilities Measurement, Monitoring and Reporting Procedure and the Energy and Water Management Action Plan.

Since the target was set we have worked hard to improve efficiency, incorporate renewable energy sources and ensure new buildings meet strict energy consumption criteria. We are currently on track to acheive and even exceed the target.
