We are committed to reducing our emissions with the aim of halving our emissions by 2030. From the initial audit, it’s clear which areas need the greatest attention:
- Travel contributes the most to our overall emissions
Travel includes business travel, commuting, hotels etc. (Inc. employee flights)
- Procurement is our second highest contributor
Procurement includes both goods & services, and capital goods
- Property is also a significant contributor
Includes energy consumption and waste
We have identified several initiatives and the potential impact they may have on our emissions. More details and the initiatives identified, can be found in our carbon reduction plan, here.
In addition to reducing our own emissions we are also working to reduce the impact of the teams that join us on expedition. A big first step in brining emissions down was the announcement to remove avoidable aviation - including internal, domestic flights here in the UK.
