*1 GHG emissions scope 1 TCO2e
The production of gas at the Corrib gas field is now declining and we are increasingly reliant on our compressor stations in Scotland. These compressor stations increased our fuel gas requirements in 2020 and 2021 and caused an increase in carbon emissions. We have implemented a number of initiatives to improve our energy performance of our compressors and as part of our sustainability strategy several decarbonisation options are being appraised to further reduce our emissions and achieve our Low Carbon Pledge commitments.
*2 GHG emissions scope 2 TCO2e
The reductions in electricity use is partly due to improved energy efficiency measures across our operations and offices.
*3 GHG emissions scope 3 TCO2e
Our scope 3 emissions have increased slightly from 2020 to 2021 due to increased scope and accuracy of GHG reporting by suppliers and increased traveling by staff following COVID restrictions in 2020.
