Minimising environmental impacts from properties


Most of our direct environmental impacts occur within our own properties, particularly through energy use and carbon emissions, so our aim is to reduce these as far as possible.

Priorities

  • Resource efficiency: We aim to minimise the energy, materials and water used within our operations

  • Renewable energy: We aim to maximise our use of renewable energy

  • Climate change and GHG emissions: We aim to minimise our contribution to climate change and manage the impacts, risks and opportunities that will affect our business and supply chain

Highlights

  • We sourced 90 per cent of our electricity from renewable sources in 2019

  • We reduced our emissions by 5.5 per cent this year, bringing the five-year total reduction to 29 per cent

  • We expanded our scope 3 emissions reporting to include air travel emissions

"Our property programme continued its focus on energy efficiency and carbon reductions in 2019. Our lab energy efficiency delivered significant reductions once again and we reduced our carbon emissions for the fifth year in a row."
