Net Carbon Reduction

What is it?

Reducing carbon
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


OUR AMBITION: Be operationally net zero carbon by 2025 and fully net zero carbon by 2040
