32% reduction since 2010
Scope 1 + 2 emissions
If we were still using the same amount of energy as we were in 2010, we would be spending...
...more a year on energy.
We are saving 5,413 tCO e a year
. This is equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of around 540 UK households
All major building projects follow
our sustainable building specification. Developed in line with
BREEAM outstanding
Programme Beveridge continues to focus on sustainability - aiming to achieve the
