Severn Trent's carbon footprint

Severn Trent reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 March 2021 at 164 Kt (-96 /-36.9% y-o-y). At the same time, carbon intensity increased marginally to 107,896,331 t (+800,750/+0.7% y-o-y).

No public disclosure of Scope 3 emissions has been found for Severn Trent at the moment.

The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 46% by 2030 from a base year 2019, which translates into the estimated reduction of -2.1 Kt per annum over the period of FY2022 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.

Severn Trent also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Severn Trent commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 46.2% by FY2031 from a FY2020 base year.* Severn Trent commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from use of sold products 13.5% within the same timeframe. Severn Trent commits that 70% of its suppliers by emissions covering purchased goods and services, capital goods, upstream transportation and distribution and waste generated in operations will have science-based targets by FY2026. *The target boundary includes biogenic emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks.
