Net Carbon Reduction
What is it?
To help achieve the global goal to stop average temperatures rising less than 2 degrees, the UN wants everyone – from individuals to global corporations and governments – to decrease the amount of harmful carbon emitted to our planet.
Why it’s important to us
Need to change
The building and construction industry account for around 40% of the world’s carbon emissions. Government, local authorities, partners and customers have expectations and targets which must be met or exceeded but a step change is needed.
How we can have an impact
- Target ongoing carbon reduction at a business unit and Group level
- Embrace design principles that deliver long-term, low-carbon and low-carbon-enabled buildings
- Integrate into business policies
