In our Carbon Management Plan we have set a single target for reducing our carbon emissions.
|Target reduction ||Baseline year ||Deadline |
Carbon Management Plan target
|20% ||2009–10 ||March 2020 |
We also set an interim target to help guide our performance towards the main target:
|Target reduction ||Baseline year ||Deadline ||Achievement |
Carbon Management interim target
|15% ||2009-10 ||March 2015 ||14.2% |
Our carbon footprint includes electricity use, direct fuel use (gas and oil), waste, business travel and fleet activity, water use and our Marine operations. We detail our performance in these areas in our annual report.
These targets apply specifically to the areas where we have the best opportunities to make improvements that can be sustained. Therefore our measured footprint excludes our Marine Scotland research and surveillance activities.
