Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions data for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 are set out in the table below.
Notes to the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data
This disclosure includes all of the emission sources required under the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Directors’ Report) Regulations 2013. These sources fall within our consolidated financial statement and we do not have responsibility for any emission sources that are not included in our consolidated statement.
During the reporting period, the annual quantity of energy consumed by the company was 64,294,472 kWh. This figure presents the underlying global energy use data that was used to calculate the GHG emissions and is calculated in kWh. Where information has been converted to kWh from other units (e.g. litres of fuel), the 2021 UK Government’s Greenhouse Gas Conversion Factors for Company Reporting have been used for the required conversions.
This inventory of greenhouse gas emissions has been verified by SGS to a limited level of assurance, in accordance with ISO 14064-3:2006, as meeting the requirements of The Greenhouse Gas Protocol – A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. Click here to view our verification statement.
