We’re committed to being a socially responsible employer and reducing our carbon footprint.
We recognise we have our part to play in tackling global climate change, and we’ve pledged to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions IMR (intensity measurement ratio - tonnes of CO2e per £m revenue) by at least 40% by 2025/26.
The past year has undoubtedly been challenging in many ways, but there have been some environmental benefits. At AQA we’ve seen significant reductions in our overall greenhouse gas emissions resulting in a 38% reduction in our IMR since 2018. This equates to 54% actual reduction, or 1013 tonnes CO2e, and is made up from:
While this level of decline is significant, we're making further improvements to reduce our impacts on the environment:
Nick Stevens, AQA’s Director of Finance and Corporate Services, said:
“Sustainability is a real passion at AQA and we’ve been working on a number of initiatives for some time, like installing solar panels on our buildings and increasing our recycling rate.
“But we want to raise our game even more with these further improvements, and are committed to making a positive impact and cutting our carbon footprint through outstanding environmental sustainability.”
