This publication offers a short addendum to, and should be read in conjunction with, The States of Jersey Group 2022 Annual Report and Accounts.
As part of our sustainability work, we have been reviewing the way that we collate figures on our energy consumption, emissions and spend and official air travel. For this reason, our usual emissions data for the year was not available at the time The States of Jersey Group 2022 Annual Report and Accounts was published.
As part of this report, 2021 and 2020 data has been restated as corrections were identified during the preparation of the 2022 report.
Overall, Government and non-ministerial departments’ 2022 energy consumption (property, vehicles, plant and equipment) dropped by 14%, and associated core organisational emissions were down 22% on 2021.
Against the 2019-2021 baseline, this represents a drop of 19% in core organisational emissions (target -8%). This is likely largely due to a milder winter and high energy costs meaning people were more careful, however, it is also in part due to the decarbonisation work started across the estate and the massive progress that fleet have made during this time.
