The 2013 CO2e numbers shown on this page are actuals and have been restated from the estimates published in the 2013 report. The 2014 CO2e numbers are subject to an adjustment as some of the actuals for the last quarter of 2014 were not available at the time of publication and have been estimated based on 2013 data. The non-financial figures reported in these tables have been reviewed by independent external assurance provider Bureau Veritas. For details of the scope of work and opinion on the accuracy of our stated performance, please see the full assurance statement.

What we include when we report

  • We report our greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) from the sources required under the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic Report and Director’s Report Regulations 2013). We have used the GHG reporting protocol to calculate our GHG emissions for 2014, based on data gathered to fulfil our requirements under the CRC Energy Efficiency scheme and on emission factors from the UK Government’s GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting 2014.
  • We report on Scope 3 emissions from the following sources:
    • Business travel data is provided by Portman (our travel partner) which is responsible for booking and tracking all rail, air and hotel base travel. Travel data from Canada is obtained from our travel booking partners.
    • Rail travel – emissions calculated using total distance travelled.
    • Air travel – emissions calculated using data for three separate categories (domestic, short-haul and long-haul flights) showing distance travelled.
    • Hotel stays – emissions calculated based upon a standard hotel stay of 48kgCO2 per person per night.
    • Paper use – emissions calculated from total kg paper purchased and multiplied by CO2 factors provided by paper supplier.
    • Water – emissions calculated based on data showing total volume of water used.
    • Hire cars – emissions calculated based on miles travelled and litres of fuel consumed.
    • Electricity and gas WTT – emissions calculated based on kWh.
    • Electricity line losses – emissions calculated based on kWh.
