(1) The Group’s chosen intensity ratio is energy consumption, emissions and water withdrawal reported above normalised megawatts usage (MWh), tonnes of CO2e, or m3 per £1,000 of revenue. The data has been standardised from the source units in which it was initially collected. The revenue figures used to calculate the intensity ratio include continuing operations under operational control only.
(2) Where renewable electricity is commercially and reasonably available in the relevant jurisdiction.
(3) Target baselined on FY2021 with consideration of HY2022 performance.
