Progress towards 2030 interim GHG reduction targets Our business has grown significantly since 2019, but we remain on track to meet our 2030 GHG reduction target (Figure 9). The delivery of key energy-efficiency projects and increased use of renewable electricity in FY22 led to a 46% reduction in GHG emissions compared to the previous year, with FY22 Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 13% below 2019 levels. As of June 2022, two- thirds of our electricity needs were being sourced from renewables. This is enough renewable electricity to power 30,000 homes. By market, our electricity mix comprises: • Sydney: 80% renewable since July 2021 (excluding NorthConnex) • Brisbane: 80% renewable since January 2022 • Melbourne: CityLink 50% renewable since January 2022, anticipated to increase to 100% from January 2024 • Greater Washington Area: 0% renewable (grid only, with renewable energy options being explored) • Montreal: grid electricity comprising around 99% renewables.

Our renewable energy use will increase as new renewable electricity contracts mature and we transition to renewables in the US. To increase the visibility of our commitment and progress to net zero, we embraced the opportunity to volunteer for the Clean Energy Regulator’s pilot of the Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency (CERT) reporting scheme. We provided information about progress towards our net zero commitment and science-based GHG emission reduction targets, GHG emission data (Scope 1 and 2) and renewable energy use for FY21. The Regulator released the FY21 pilot year report in July 2022 ahead of the start of the official program for FY22 reporting onwards later this year.
As part of our efforts to meet our Scope 3 reduction targets, we have introduced GHG reporting for our major suppliers. Supplier progress is monitored through their participation in CDP Supply Chain reporting, providing greater transparency and confidence that we can achieve our 2030 targets. We also continue to work with our delivery partners on major projects to reduce projects’ impact on the environment and increase their use of low-carbon construction materials. In FY22, GHG intensity across Scope 3 emissions sources continued to be a focus and supplier engagement with our CDP supply chain program reached 70%. Further supply chain engagement information can be found on page 62.

In addition to working with our supply chain to reduce Scope 3 emissions, our next steps towards our net zero target include setting contractor targets for fuel efficiency and transitioning contractor operations, maintenance and incident response vehicles to zero-emission vehicles by 2030. We are continuing our lighting upgrade and ventilation optimisation programs and investigating renewable energy opportunities for our North American assets.
