This year, we announced our commitment to achieve net zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, from assets owned and controlled by the GTAA, by 2050. Known as scope 1 and 2 GHGs, this commitment to net zero forms a significant part of our Environmental Policy.
We’ve come a long way on our environmental journey, and Pearson was recently awarded the 2020 Environmental Achievement award for our GHG reductions, and the winner of the 2021 #race2reduce CREST Award in the Performance Leadership - Landmark Building category for our energy conservation efforts.
Continuing our support for GHG reduction, the GTAA continues to invest in energy conservation and greenhouse gas reducing technologies, including:
- piloting the use of electric boilers in terminal spaces during off peak hours, to preheat water in order to save energy/gas
- replaced over 20 electric GSE charging stations
- invested in replacing over 2,100 LED inset lights for our movement and maneuvering areas to generate the benefits of upgraded visibility and reduced energy usage
