Our targets are to be Carbon Neutral for Scope 1 and Net Zero for Scope 2 emissions by the end of 2021. We’ll achieve these targets through focusing on the following areas:
Reduction in emissions
We will reduce our emissions through energy efficiency and demand reduction measures.
We will source credible renewable energy arrangements to ensure Scope 2 emissions are removed.
After proving we have reinforced our emissions as much as possible we will offset any residual emissions.
Looking further into the future we will look to further reduce our emissions by tackling our Scope 3 operational emissions through the following actions:
Goods and Services
Working with suppliers to eliminate the emissions in the products and services we buy
Reducing the waste we generate and the emissions arising from their disposal.
Encouraging colleagues to commute to our premises using low carbon means of transport.
Making sure our colleagues pension investments are ethical and consistent with the climate agenda.
Our ambition is to be totally carbon neutral by 2040, but there is much work to do to achieve this goal, in particular working with the Government and utility providers to enable home owners to make their properties more energy efficient. We’re committed to providing our members with products to help them make this transition as well as offering resources which help our customers make decisions on what energy efficiency options make most sense for them.
