Becoming Carbon Positive


As part of our science-based target commitment, we seek to reduce absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions 100% by 2030, against a 2015 baseline, then move to carbon positivity, meaning our carbon capture is greater than our carbon emission.

  • SCOPE 1 (STATIONARY AND MOBILE): All direct emissions from those activities under our control. Including fuel combustion on-site such as gas boilers and service fleet emissions.
  • SCOPE 2: Indirect emissions from electricity purchased and used.
