The carbon story - interested in waving money?

What's the story so far on progress? Are our targets too ambitious? If we don't take a lead as the Environment Agency who will? We are looking at all parts of our business and for some time have reported on our CO2 emissions associated with how we manage our fleet and facilities. Our pumping activity accounts for a third of our footprint and we are embracing the use of national data sets to map rainfall data to our asset base to establish non-weather dependent measures of efficiency. As an industry we are charged with reducing our GHG emissions by 50% (cf 1990 levels) and we are working with our delivery teams and supply chain to drive a change in culture and behaviours to put low carbon assets as a top priority thus saving carbon, money and the planet!

So how do we compare with the rest of industry? We are sharing our work with other organisations through the Green Construction Board. What are you doing? How do you compare to the rest of industry? Are you playing your part in helping us to meet our joint industry target?
