RIIO-2 Environmental Report Guidance Document

Alongside our RIIO-2 formal Licence Drafting Consultation, we are also consulting on proposed drafts of a number of Associated Documents. These are documents created under the licence conditions that supplement those conditions and are subordinate to them.

We would like your views on our draft of the RIIO-2 Environmental Reporting Guidance document, which is an Associated Document of Special Condition 9.1 of the gas transmission (GT), electricity transmission (ET) and gas distribution (GD) licences. SpC 9.1 requires the licence holder to publish an Annual Environment Report (AER).

The proposed draft Guidance has been informed by the feedback we received from the gas transmission, electricity transmission and gas distribution licensees in nine working group meetings held over September and October 2020 on environmental reporting. This draft is a working draft of the reporting requirements for the RIIO-2 Annual Environmental Report and the content is in line with our Final Determinations. We will ensure that all comments received as part of this consultation will be considered before we finalise the Guidance.

We welcome views on our proposed draft of the Environmental Reporting Guidance document and in particular your comments on the areas listed below.

Do you have any comments on:

  1. the general requirements for the publication of the AER that is proposed in the draft Guidance?

  2. the structure of the AER that is proposed in the draft Guidance?

  3. the content of the AER that is proposed in the draft Guidance?

  4. the environmental impact measures to be included in the Dashboard that are proposed in the draft Guidance?

  5. the type of information about the licensee’s implementation of their EAP commitments that is proposed in the draft Guidance?

  6. any of the environmental topics to be included in the AER that are proposed in the draft Guidance?

  7. any of the specific metrics to be included in the AER that are proposed in the draft Guidance?

  8. the proposal that licensees report on the life cycle impact of supply chain categories where data is available?

Do you have any suggestions for including any additional environmental topics or other metric/measures on environmental impact of the networks?
