Commit to minimise embodied carbon emissions and operational energy consumption, achieving net zero upfront carbon for all major development projects and net zero carbon in operation for areas of direct control by 2030.
Measure and publicly disclose energy consumption and scopes 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions annually through ESG reporting. Measure and disclose the whole life carbon of all construction activities.
Develop a decarbonisation roadmap including minimum targets for all development projects covering upfront embodied carbon, whole life embodied carbon and operational energy intensity. Implement refurbishment works for existing assets focused on fabric improvements, elimination of gas heating systems and the installation of onsite renewable energy generation.
Verify energy performance and emissions data via an independent third party to ISO14064-3 standard.
Engage with tenants to implement carbon saving initiatives and introduce green lease provisions to support energy efficiency. Reduce scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in line with a science-based reduction target. Advocate for wider industry change, using the net zero roadmap to innovate and share learning with the wider market.
