The main greenhouse gases (GHGs) that Apogee generates from its direct business operations are carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide. These are from fleet fuel (mainly diesel and petrol), and from buildings energy such as natural gas, electricity, and heating oil (red diesel). GHGs from fleet fuel accounts for about 83% of total emissions, whilst GHGs from buildings fuel accounts for 17%.
Apogee has set ambitious targets to eliminate all direct GHG emissions (scope 1 and scope 2) by 2025; and indirect GHG emissions (scope 3) by 2030, based on 2019 GHG emissions. This is also in line with the Net-Zero strategy of the business; hence, the business is in the process of aligning its GHG targets with the Science Based Targets Initiative.
Meanwhile, various initiatives have been introduced to reduce the GHG emissions of the business. Some of them are as follows:
