22’ Carbon Measurement
At John Good Group, we believe in the power of collective action to create positive change for our planet. Our commitment to sustainability runs deep, and we are driven by an unwavering passion to support the longevity of our environment. It is with great enthusiasm that we embark on a journey to make a real difference and drive tangible change.
Central to our sustainability efforts is our Carbon Neutrality Plan, which embodies our sincere commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. However, we understand the importance of credibility and accountability. That’s why we have partnered with RSM, a reputable external third-party, to conduct audits and ensure the integrity of our strategies and actions.
In our quest to protect the planet, we have developed a comprehensive strategy that forms a cornerstone of our operations. By clearly delineating our current position, we lay the groundwork for progress, providing us with a genuine cause to rally behind and support the continuous improvement of our environment.
To gauge our progress and identify areas for improvement, we have diligently measured our carbon emissions across our operational companies and the entirety of John Good Group. Our comprehensive carbon measurements encompass Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of a sustainable future.
By analysing these measurements, we gain valuable insights that inform our decisions and guide our efforts towards meaningful carbon reduction. Through transparent reporting and a steadfast dedication to sustainability, we aim to set new standards within our industry and inspire others to follow suit.
FY22 Measurement Table
Let’s dive into the world of emissions and understand the definitions of scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.
Emissions are the direct emissions owned or controlled by a company. These emissions originate from sources directly managed by the organization. For instance, if our fleet of vehicles burns fuel (excluding electric-powered vehicles), the emissions generated fall under scope 1.
Emissions, are the indirect emissions caused by a company. Scope 2 emissions stem from the production of energy that the company purchases and utilizes. Consider the emissions produced when generating the electricity we consume in our buildings; these would fall within the scope 2 category.
Emissions encompass the emissions not directly produced by the company itself. They result from activities related to assets that the company indirectly influences along its value chain. A prime example would be when we purchase, utilize, and dispose of products from our suppliers. Scope 3 emissions encompass all sources that are beyond the boundaries of scope 1 and 2.
