Our efforts aim to enhance our positive impact for our people and communities where we operate and reside. We will develop our plan towards Net Zero in 2045. The initial focus is to reduce total scope 1 and 2 emissions by reducing fleet car emissions, further replacement of lighting with low energy units, the roll out of smart electricity and gas meters, and purchasing electricity generated from renewable sources. As we progress, we are constantly refining our approach to our net zero strategy, especially as we gather more data to support our plans. We acknowledge that achieving our net zero targets involves numerous variables and uncertainties that are outside of our influence, such as policy makers, governments, and suppliers.
