Total greenhouse gas emissions directly attributed to our activities were 649,608 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Total greenhouse emissions relating to distribution network line losses decreased by 5% to 627,129 tonnes of CO2e. Emissions from our vehicle fleet decreased by 8% compared to 2009–10 while emissions from electricity consumption increased by 12%.
Throughout 2010–11, Endeavour Energy continued to implement and monitor energy efficiency projects to reduce emissions. These projects included:
Reflecting community perceptions of the environment and the desire for affordable electricity, Endeavour Energy will review the organisation’s climate change position statement and voluntary target. The objective of this review will be to establish a position that reflects stakeholder expectations and achieves cost-effective reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. As a result of this review, carbon offsets have not been purchased for the 2010–11 financial year.
