Welcome to our dedicated page on sustainability at Rentokil Initial. Here, we delve into our journey towards a greener, more sustainable future, highlighting our achievements in 2023 and our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship.
Andrew Stone, our Managing Director for the Pacific region, opens our sustainability narrative with a powerful message. Drawing inspiration from New Zealand's rich cultural heritage, he underscores the importance of respecting indigenous wisdom in shaping sustainability practices. As we face what might be the hottest year on record in 2023, our resolve to combat climate change has never been stronger.

As a world leader in pest control, hygiene solutions, and interior landscaping, our mission extends beyond service delivery. We're committed to creating healthier, safer environments, a commitment that's deeply embedded in every aspect of our business.
Innovation is at the heart of our sustainability drive. Our Pest Connect system re-engineered Hygiene Services and commitment to indoor greening are testaments to our sustainable approach. We don't just add sustainability as an afterthought; it's woven into our business decisions and innovations.
This year, we have marked a pivotal point in reaching Net Zero by 2040. We've successfully reduced our emissions intensity by 9.6%, moving closer to our 20% reduction target for 2025. Our fleet transitions in the UK and Europe are progressing well, and we've introduced our first renewable energy contracts, setting a new standard in our industry.
Our future targets are ambitious yet achievable. We aim for a 70% reduction in emissions from fumigation, a complete transition of our fleet to ultra-low emission vehicles and 100% renewable energy usage on our properties.
Our sustainability efforts are guided by a robust governance structure led by Andrew Stone and supported by a team of dedicated professionals across various departments. Each team member is crucial in integrating sustainability into our business model.
