Putting our net zero goal at the heart of everything we do
Our vision is to put mitigating climate change and the promotion of healthy, inclusive and economically resilient businesses and communities at the forefront of our activities.
Our vision is to put mitigating climate change and the promotion of healthy, inclusive and economically resilient businesses and communities at the heart of everything we do. In 2020, we launched our net zero carbon strategy, Our Goal: Net Zero, which outlines how we will cut our total carbon impact by 50% by 2030.
To achieve this, we will focus on three core areas: cutting energy use in buildings by a third; reducing the embodied carbon intensity of our developments by 50%; and cutting the carbon intensity of purchased goods and services by at least 60%.
Our net zero carbon aims form part of a wider strategy for delivering social benefit that was also launched in 2020. This includes 25 targets to reach by 2025, ranging from developing sustainable buildings to introducing urban farming initiatives across our portfolio. This was rolled out to our employees during World Green Building Week, with a series of workshops and training sessions to equip them with the knowledge and skills they require for implementation.
