Climate Change Position
DBI acknowledges the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the impacts of global warming. We support the objective of finding a pathway to limit global warming to less than 2°C, aligned to the Paris Agreement. DBI has committed to target net zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions from DBT operations by 2050.
In 2021, DBT secured arrangements for 100% of its electricity requirements to have 100% renewable benefits in the form of renewable electricity largescale generation certificates (LGCs) for the period from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023 (the PPA). The surrender of LGCs will help underpin DBI’s commitment to target to achieve net zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with DBT’s electricity emissions representing approximately 98% of DBT’s Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions each year.
In addition to the PPA, DBI, alongside the Operator, has developed a Climate Change Strategy that will consider climate change risk and resilience, energy consumption, efficiency and a net zero roadmap for the terminal for reduction in its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions. DBI and the Operator will seek to implement a staged approach to deliver on that road map over time.
