Carbon emissions data is gathered and reported every quarter by our independent energy department. Information gathered includes fuel, travel and energy consumption. Electricity and gas data is based on half-hourly meters or taken from invoices using meter readings, and is reported in kWh. Road vehicle fuel consumption is measured at pump and reported to Carillion from the fuel card providers. Plant fuel data is based on expenditure and unit costs.

We currently gather data for scope 1 and scope 2 emissions, as defined by the UK Government’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol. Scope 3 covers indirect emissions from construction materials and their delivery to sites, facilities management services in client properties, and waste and water-related emissions from contracts.
