Historical GHG emissions data

The environment and climate change
The greenhouse gas emissions data is reported in line with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard ‘Operational Control’ method, and emission factors for fuels and electricity are published at www.gov.uk/government/collections/government-conversion-factors-forcompany-reporting. 
For the 2019 reporting cycle, the 2019 emissions factors have been utilised as opposed to the 2018 factors. In previous years the emissions factors used for the Group’s greenhouse gas emissions reporting have been a year behind, mainly due to the factors not being released in time for half-year assurance (for example, 2016 emissions factors used for 2017 reporting cycle). Going forward, the emissions factors used will coincide with the year of the reporting cycle as these are the latest factors available for the majority of the Group’s reporting period.
