Panuku carbon emissions data and targets

Eke Panuku is part of the Climate Leaders Coalition (CLC) acting on the climate emergency.

We are a Toitū carbonreduce certified organisation committed to measuring and managing our greenhouse gases, and publicly reporting them.

We have set a science-based target to reduce our direct emissions by 35% by 2030. This is consistent with the CLC commitment to reduce carbon to stay within a 2-degree global temperature rise.

Our emissions are audited and reported on annually by Toitū Envirocare, these reports are below:

Emissions are classified into the following categories:

  • Direct GHG emissions (Scope 1): GHG emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the company.
  • Indirect GHG emissions (Scope 2): GHG emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, heat and steam consumed by the company.
  • Indirect GHG emissions (Scope 3): GHG emissions required by the Programme that occur because of the activities of the company but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company.

Our emissions inventory for 2021 shows an increase in total gross GHG emissions by over 18% from the base year of 2018/2019 and around 30% from last year.

Overall, Scope 1 and 2 emissions have both decreased significantly. Scope 1 emissions have decreased by over 30% from our base year and nearly 34% from last year. Scope 2 emissions have decreased over 8% from our base year and over 30% from last year.

The increase in total gross GHG emissions is due to an increase in Scope 3 emissions. This included emissions from waste associated with deconstruction of the America's Cup bases. Additional emissions came from waste in our building and energy use on marina berths that is on-charged to customers. The additional energy use is due to increased usage of these berths over the America's Cup period and due to boats that had extended stays at Westhaven due to COVID-19-related issues such as border restrictions.
