Why this matters template_carbonv3


 Targets_small header

1. Reduce the carbon emissions rate (normalised by turnover) by 20% by 2022 (2015 baseline)
2. Reduce all vehicle fleet carbon emissions by 40% (normalised by turnover) by 20% by 2022 (2015 baseline)
4. Reduce ISS estate energy use (normalised by floor area) by 80% by 2022 (2015 baseline)
5. 100% renewably sourced electricity for all ISS buildings (where we procure)

 

Performance update

• Against our ThinkForward@ISS 2015 baseline we have made a 29% absolute reduction in our carbon emissions to 15,160 tCO2e.
• We have achieved our overall 2022 20% carbon emissions rate reduction target four years early.
• Vehicle fleet fuel use continues to dominate our carbon footprint with 92% of scope 1 & 2 emissions.
• The ISS Estate continues to see increased sustainability performance with a 50% reduction in kWh/m² between 2017 and 2018. 

ISS UK Carbon Reduction Rate

The divestment of our Landscaping division in June 2018 was a key factor in the significant reduction of carbon emissions this year. Landscaping was an intensive user of fuel within our vehicle fleet and in their use of equipment, together contributing to almost half of our overall fuel use in the business.

Our vehicle fleet continues to be the main contributor to our carbon footprint. We were delighted to be awarded the top Gold rating by Masternaut – our telematics provider, for efforts to reduce fleet carbon emissions in 2018.

By deploying tracking devices in our vans, we have been able to monitor and improve aspects of driver behaviour such as excessive idling and harsh acceleration. This enabled us to achieve a 5% reduction in year-on-year carbon emissions and the Gold rating.

The programme was led by David Butler, Asset Planning and Engineering Support Manager at ISS UK, who commented:


ISS estate emissions deriving from gas and electricity use remain at 6% of our carbon footprint. In 2018 we saw a 24% reduction in energy use (kWh) in our estate. The removal of properties within the Landscaping portfolio proved a key factor in the energy reduction. Nevertheless, achieving a 50% reduction in kWh/m² in the same period shows increased energy performance within the ISS estate.

Energy Saving Opportunities is a new element of our continually improving ISO50001 Energy Management System.The element provides an online tool for our estate to identify, develop and implement energy innovations.
