Note: Data has been provided for individual countries where there has been relevant energy consumption.

  1. Most of our electricity consumption happens in our head office in Edinburgh (77% of our total electricity consumption in 2015), followed by London and Stavanger (both 9% of total). Electricity consumption for the Edinburgh, London, Dakar (<5% of total) and Rabat (<1% of total) offices is taken from meter readings. London office figures were taken from October 2014 to October 2015 because the fourth quarter figure for the London office is not yet available at reporting time. Electricity consumption for the Stavanger office is calculated as a proportion of the overall building.
