We use 100% Renewable Electricity
One of our main commitments was to switch our reliance on electricity generated from fossil fuels to renewably sourced alternatives. In 2022 we moved all of our sites to 100% renewably sourced electricity as part of our plans to reach our Scope 1 and 2 emission targets of 28% by 2030. Our switch to renewable electricity has enabled us to make a 51% reduction in our Scope 2 emissions.
By making the switch has also enabled us to anticipate achieving our overall Scope 2 target. Even though we have swapped to renewable supply for our electricity and are forecast to meet our science-based targets goals for the future, sites are continuing to focus on continually reducing consumption through performance evaluation against individual site targets. The Omagh site was the best performing site with over 100Mwh reduction in electricity consumption in the most recent two-year period, despite production volumes increasing by 2%.
This was achieved through a combination of measures from refrigeration and plant efficiencies and discipline at department level to turn off all equipment and lights when not in use.
Our Sustainability Strategy is founded on four key pillars and underpinned by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
