In partnership with our parent company, we are excited to report a 36.11% absolute reduction in emissions from animal proteins, following our first 18 months of targeted climate action, equating to a reduction of 88,388 tCO2e for the business. This achievement has contributed to a significant 187,084 tCO2e absolute reduction in emissions (-20.37%) reported in the wider business’s food and drink emissions alone (Scope 3, Category 1) between FY19 (our baseline year) and FY22.
Animal proteins are a key carbon hotspot for us (20.58% of our FY19 baseline footprint) and the positive outcome achieved in this area is the combined impact of significant reductions achieved in emissions-intensive subcategories such as dairy and cheese (-46.64%) and meat (-28.39%).
The importance of successfully targeting animal proteins is underlined by evidence shared in the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the substantial decreases in greenhouse gas emissions possible through a shift to plant-based diets.
