This year’s footprint includes emissions from electricity, natural gas, waster usage, business travel (non fleet vehicles, air, rail, taxi), waste disposal and paper used in the offices. The relative carbon footprint in year ending December 2018 was 2.76 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 3%* compared to 2017. Amber’s total carbon footprint was 339 tCO2e, an increase of 25.6%* from 2017. Electricity emissions increased by 5% and accounts for 21% of the total carbon footprint. Business travel emissions increased by 32% and accounts for 77% of total emissions, with air travel being the biggest contributor in travel related emissions and increased by 41% when compared to the previous year.
