Aqua Comms carried out a full review of scope 1 and scope 2 (tCo2e) use to enable emissions to be calculated on a site by site basis in 2021. In 2021 our scope 1 & 2 emissions intensity was 217 C02e/GWh and 42.15% of our energy consumption was from renewable sources. In 2022 Aqua Comms is reviewing its energy providers and looking to transition to renewable energy on targeted sites.
