As our main business is the distribution of LPG from terminals to our customers, 84% of our emissions are transport related. The rest is split between filling plants and overheads, with a small part attributable to storage.
The overwhelming majority of transport related emissions are caused by road vehicles. Emissions related to rail or barge transport represents just over 2%.
Transporting cylinders generates 53% of emissions. Transport of bulk LPG accounts for one-third of our footprint. Overheads and filling plants1 each account for just over 5%, with storage (in terminals and depots) accounting for the remaining 3%.
Figure 4 shows the relative contributions of primary and secondary transport of bulk LPG and cylinders.
