We were delighted to win two awards at the Carbon Disclosure Project UK Results event last year. The awards recognised how we improved our performance and enhanced our disclosure of our emissions-related information.
Energy use is the main cause of our emissions. Our Property Management team has developed an energy-saving plan. This seeks to optimise our buildings' heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, and invest in energy-efficient devices, such as lighting.
Throughout 2015, 100% of the Group's UK electricity was purchased on a green tariff.
