5.1 THE ENVIRONMENT
ENERGY CONSUMPTION (CONTINUED)
Our Total Direct Energy Consumption (Scope 1) increased
by 24% in 2017. This follows a 2% increase in consumption
of Total Direct Energy in 2016. The increase in 2017 is
primarily a result of an increase in on-site solar generation in
our US centres and increased natural gas usage in our UK
centres.
