Achieving sustainability in energy supply and operations
CO2emissions from business operations
Since 2015, CO2 emissions from our business operations are measured as per the method that is generally used across the industry, i.e. based on the Energy Balance method excluding supply chain emissions. CO2 emissions are made up of three components:
The percentage of recycled material incorporated into goods procured and the percentage of material that is recyclable at the end of the useful life. The percentage of recyclable material is determined based on resource passports issued by the supplier. The scope comprises primary assets: LS & MS cables, gas pipes, distribution and power transformers, and legacy and smart electricity & gas meters.
