For the fifth year in a row, the Bank of Lithuania has assessed the carbon footprint generated by its activities. As the coronavirus pandemic ended and the daily activities of the Bank of Lithuania returned to normal, the total carbon footprint per employee (1.42 t of CO2 equivalent) also followed the upward trend in 2022, compared to 2021 and 2020, but was lower than before the pandemic in 2019 (3.57 t of CO2 equivalent).

“Contribution to the fight against climate change is one of the strategic goals of the Bank of Lithuania, and reducing the carbon footprint of the organisation’s activities is one of the five goals of the Green Strategy of the Bank of Lithuania. We constantly monitor our carbon footprint and implement measures that reduce the impact of the organisation’s daily activities on the environment,” says Tomas Garbaravičius, Head of the Climate Change Centre of the Bank of Lithuania.

In 2022, the total amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the Bank of Lithuania, including Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions, stood at 934,215 t of CO2 equivalent. Consumption of heat energy accounted for 41% of this amount, flights – 24%, use of cooling agents – 25%.
