Greenhouse Gas Emissions
WEL has undertaken an initial assessment of its greenhouse has emissions with a view to reducing the relative impact of its emissions over time.
WEL has used the 2018 - 2019 financial year as the baseline against which future appraisals will be compared. All measurements will be validated by Toitū Envirocare. Emissions from vehicles, staff travel and energy consumption form the majority of WEL's emission profile.
