Prudential plc-Greenhouse Gas Emissions Statement
We have compiled our global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in accordance with the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic and Directors' Reports) Regulations 2013. GHG emissions are broken down into three scopes; we have included full reporting for Scope 1 and 2, and select Scope 3 reporting as best practice.
Scope 1 emissions are our direct emissions from the combustion of fuel, fugitive emissions and company owned vehicles. Scope 2 emissions cover our indirect emissions from the purchase of electricity, heating and cooling. We have reported our Scope 2 emissions using both the location and market -based methods in line with the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance. Our Scope 3 footprint includes UK booked business travel, global water consumption and waste generated from our investment properties with operational control, UK and US occupied properties. We continue to work with our Business Units to review the extent of our Scope 3 reporting and increase coverage where practicable.
Please refer to our Basis of Reporting and supplementary reporting online for further detail on our methodology, reported consumption and drivers of variation.
