We've set ambitious targets and are implementing strategic measures to decarbonise our own operations and empower our suppliers to do the same.

Leading by example

If we want to encourage and influence others to play their part in achieving net zero, we must lead by example. While our own operations and supply chain are a small percentage of our overall carbon footprint, they form a crucial part of our plan.

We are clear on what we need to do to reduce emissions across our operations and supply chain.

We are proud to have already achieved our Scope 1 and 2 2025 emissions reduction targets for our own operations, three years ahead of schedule.


Our operations

To achieve our operational net zero targets, we have developed an operational carbon reduction strategy to manage our carbon emissions that follows the best practice Eliminate-Reduce-Substitute-Compensate model. This model supports our financial planning, decision-making and spending on activities to manage the carbon footprint of our operations. In practical terms this largely means a combination of purchasing renewable energy, investing in energy efficiency measures, encouraging sustainable behaviours and some buildings consolidation.

Our supply chain

Our supply chain emissions are concentrated in a small number of large suppliers. Our initial efforts have centred around improving our supply chain emissions data and encouraging key suppliers to commit to robust emissions reduction targets, which 94% have done.

Over the next few years, we will introduce sustainable sourcing and procurement policies which will encourage greater action from our suppliers.

Our journey to net zero

We continue to build, refine and share our net zero plans, considering the evolving landscape and the latest guidance. While the journey ahead is by no means a straightforward one, we are taking action now to achieve net zero and help create a sustainable future for us all.
