As the world unites to tackle climate change, we are committed to ensuring that as our business grows, our environmental impact does not. Our global environmental statement sets out our commitment to enhancing the energy efficiency of our operations, with the focus on reducing our emissions.
We are currently undergoing an exercise to set our long-term ambition, based on science-based net zero principles, to reduce all possible emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3. In the meantime, we continue to work towards our Scope 1 & 2 net zero ambition for 2030 announced in 2021. We are focused on realizing annual emissions reductions across our business to achieve our SBTi approved Scope 1 & 2 50% reduction by 2030 target, against a 2019 baseline. We continue to model and revise our Scope 3 near-term and long-term net-zero ambitions, on the principles of science-based net zero targets.
We’re eliminating carbon emissions from our business in a range of different ways – from “electrifying” our fleet of vehicles for employees and engineers, to sustainable methods of powering our emergency generators and cooling our data centres.
We track the electricity we buy and use in our offices, shops and technical sites and our goal is to get 100% of our electricity from renewable sources. We’re also using new ways of managing electricity consumption and cooling our technical sites with innovative techniques such as the deployment of Artificial Intelligence and ‘free air cooling’.
We are finalizing plans to include Scope 3 within our Net Zero commitment, removing indirect emissions across our entire value chain. We’re asking suppliers to comply with our key sustainability principles and collaborating with them to help make their businesses more sustainable. We continue to enhance the sustainability of our products to minimize waste and energy consumption.
