We are committed to reducing carbon emissions and the adverse affect of it on climate change.
Energy data continues to be captured and consolidated centrally. However, due to changes in our investment profile we have had to revise our boundary criteria for reporting purposes. The boundary criteria includes all UK projects where John Laing provide operational management and/ or John Laing Integrated Services provide facilities management.
The absolute carbon footprint associated with John Laing projects for the period July 2011 to June 2012 was 153,595 tonnes of CO2e. The increase in emissions on the preceding 12 months reflects the additon of new operational projects in 2012. Please click here for further information.
The carbon footprint for John Laing business travel and commuting over the same period was 657.5 tonnes CO2e, this compared with 820 tonnes of CO2e over the preceding 12 month period. Please click here for further information.
Energy use at our head office, No. 1 Kingsway, is monitored and staff are encouraged to save energy by turning off lights and work stations when not required. These simple but effective measures have resulted in energy savings and associated reductions in CO2 emissions.
The use of video conferencing has also had a dramatic effect on reducing business travel and associated Green House Gas emissions.
A significant amount of work has been done to quantify our carbon footprint which includes the emissions from our investment in infrastructure projects.
