Committing to Group-wide net-zero carbon targets
In 2019 we announced our most ambitious environmental targets ever across the entire Group. We committed to achieving net-zero carbon operational emissions from all of our directly managed buildings globally, by 2030, and to work towards all buildings across our portfolio, directly and indirectly managed, being embodied and operationally ‘net-zero’ by 2050.
Signing up to the World Green Building Council’s (WGBC) Commitment to accelerate action across the Group’s international businesses and help mitigate climate change, the commitments are aligned with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol emissions scopes which underpin the WGBC’s Commitment.
To achieve these targets, we will eliminate carbon emissions under our control and sustainably design, construct, operate and invest in net-zero-ready buildings. We will advocate and work towards the same goals with third parties and tackle embodied carbon, while enabling occupiers to reduce or eradicate carbon emissions from their own operations.
