Group Environmental KPI performance
Although the pathway to the absolute targets is not linear we will continue to report our data on a year-on-year basis, to track progress.
During 2019, the three SDA ‘intensity’ metrics (i.e. emissions per million passenger kilometres) made good progress towards reaching the 2025 goal. Traction energy use, traction carbon emissions and total Scope 1 & 2 emissions all reduced against the 2018 baseline year driven by our ongoing fleet improvements.
Scope 1 & 2 buildings emissions show a 2.24% reduction between 2018 and 2019 partly driven by projects such as switching electricity contracts to fully renewable sources in the UK.
The reduction in waste to landfill demonstrates the efficiency of our recycling programmes. The increased water consumption figure is largely down to continued improvement in accuracy of information, with the amount of estimated data progressively decreasing year on year.
