Commit to only occupying assets that are net zero carbon in operation by 2030, achieving maximum embodied carbon reductions and compensating for any residual upfront embodied emissions where applicable.
Measure energy consumption plus scope 1 & 2 operational carbon emissions against the quantified baseline and publicly disclose them. Identify performance gaps and opportunities to reduce carbon emissions while improving energy productivity. Disclose whole life carbon emissions for new or renovated assets, if applicable.
Implement a decarbonisation plan and emissions reduction strategy throughout the life cycle, to reduce emissions across occupied assets based on the quantified baseline, including energy efficiency measures where possible, continuing to procure 100% Green Power and offsetting any residual emissions.
Verify data and targets by seeking net zero certification via Climate Active. Verify embodied carbon using prevention strategies and WLCA calculations.
Advocate for net zero operational and embodied carbon built environment through industry engagement, communications and client education. Encourage the uptake of net zero commitments across the industry via the following initiatives: Engineers Declare, Thought Leadership pieces, Industry engagement, Living Building Challenge projects. Pursue net zero operations across business, covering scope 3 missions including travel and waste.
