This means reducing our scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions through energy management and efficiency measures and using high-quality offsetting solutions to counteract the remaining emissions.
We have also set a target of reducing the carbon intensity for revenue by 10% over the next three years from FY22 to make sure that we are improving our efficiency as we grow.
To make this happen, we’ve measured our global Scope 1 and 2 emissions, which you can find in our FY22 Annual Report. This is the first time we’ve expanded our measurement to our global (not just UK) emissions. This is our first step in our long-term carbon reduction process. We are planning to set further targets as we build on the measurement of our scope 3 emissions.
The UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (COP26) demonstrated the need for scaled up and ambitious action from governments, companies and individuals. At GBG we are committed to reducing our environmental impact.
