Electricity consumption

Our aim is to continually improve energy efficiency and to decarbonise our energy supply to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Once implemented our net zero programme will provide the framework to accelerate reductions.

During 2022, our top ten largest sites accounted for 42% of our total energy consumption. By these sites setting energy reduction targets, they have the biggest influence in reducing our energy use and, in turn, our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions.

Water and waste

Abstracted water volumes have decreased compared to 2021 consumption due to the three-yearly fluctuations in production / operational activities at one of our UK locations. Recycled water volumes have decreased compared to 2021 due to reductions at sites in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Hazardous waste volumes have decreased largely due to reductions at one of our US sites.

Biodiversity and natural capital

Nature loss and degradation poses a major risk to both the environment and society. We are undertaking surveys and assessments to better evaluate how our facilities and operations impact the surrounding natural habitat.
Operationally, significant aspects of biodiversity are addressed via our environmental management system (EMS) which includes protecting natural habitats, conserving protected species and the management of invasive species in and around our sites.
Our sectors have established a number of initiatives to support their local ecosystems from installing bat roosts, removing invasive species, planting wildflowers to attract bees, cleaning up water courses and restoring underwater environments. 
Across major UK sites, we also undertook a lifecycle environmental assessment for our products to understand our nature-related impacts, supported by natural capital evaluations carried out by third parties across major UK sites.
We are monitoring the progress of the Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures.
