Measuring & reporting our carbon footprint

Carbon footprintWe’re dedicated to understanding how every aspect of our operations contributes to our carbon footprint. We’re also committed to reporting our impact in the most transparent and robust way possible. We set out the boundary of our footprint and previous year’s performance within our annual report.


Verification and performance

We want our carbon footprint to be as robust and transparent as possible. Since 2007, our greenhouse gas inventory has undergone independent, third-party verification by Achilles Group to meet the specifications of the Certified Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme (CEMARS). This includes compliance with the international carbon reporting standard ISO14064, Part 1.

We incorporate recommendations we receive during CEMARS verification audits into our business processes.

We continue to benchmark our performance against several global indices, including CDP, and we share our carbon footprint annually with our regulator Ofwat as part of the water industry-wide regulatory return process.
