Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Normalisation Metrics 2018
The metrics of £m revenue and employee headcount can be used to normalise the emissions data.
The graph below shows how these two intensity metrics have varied between 2016 and 2018. As can be seen these trends mainly demonstrate a gradual reduction in emissions intensity over time and therefore an improvement in the energy efficiency of our estate. The notable increase in the tCO2e per £m revenue in 2018 is mainly attributed to a reduction in overall revenue as opposed to an increase in GHG emissions. The GHG footprint of the estate has improved despite the reduction in revenue and an increase in employees.
