Performance vs Objectives

2011-2015 Objective1

5% reduction in energy consumption and GHG emissions from building sources (use of electricity and natural gas) by 2015, using 2011 as a baseline.

2011-2020 Objective2

8% reduction in energy consumption and GHG emissions from building sources (use of electricity and natural gas) by 2020, using 2011 as a baseline.

Performance

7.2% reduction in 2015, using 2011 as a baseline.

(Based on 2011 baseline; in tonnes of CO2 equivalent)

GHG emissions from electricity and natural gas use<sup>3</sup>

3 The increase in GHG emissions from electricity and natural gas use from 2014 to 2015 was mainly due to increased natural gas consumption as a result of a colder than normal winter and a change in building equipment.
