Diageo made to pay £12,000 for ETS errors

Diageo has become the latest company to be forced to pay civil penalties for not reporting greenhouse gas emissions

Diageo, the drinks giant behind brands such as Guinness, has become the latest company to be forced to pay civil penalties for not reporting greenhouse gas emissions.

In November, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) issued the company four penalties totalling £12,113 for failing to report 143 tonnes of CO2 under the EU emissions trading scheme (EU ETS) for heating offices in Leven, Fife.

The company did not have to report the emissions between 2005 and 2007, because they were included in the company’s climate change agreement with government. This ‘opt out’ ended in 2008 but the firm forgot to add the emissions to its EU ETS reporting between 2008 and 2011.
