Greenhouse Gas Emissions

‘We aim to play a leading role in the industry’s environmental progress by minimising our greenhouse gas emissions and working towards carbon neutrality.’
Our 2022 goals:
- Determining our Corporate Carbon Footprint across our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions sources across each of the regions in which we operate. This means that we will track and report the emissions we are directly responsible for eg through the operation of our buildings, as well as the emissions we are indirectly responsible for eg through the buildings which are built for us, and the goods and services we purchase from others.
- Evaluating setting a Science Based Target and Net Zero Target aligned with the 1.5 degree C pathway. This means developing a comprehensive plan outlining how we transition our portfolio onto a pathway consistent with achieving a reduction in emissions aligned with what climate science tells us is required.
- Reviewing and revising our Technical Requirements Documents, which means from around Q2 of this year we will have a new set of technical specifications for the new buildings which are built for us, setting out strict environmental criteria and standards to which new and retrofit buildings will be built.
