1. Commit

Commit to reducing operational carbon emissions from assets under their direct control and compensating for all operational carbon emissions through investments in credible carbon offsets by 2030.

Corgan will compensate for any residual upfront embodied carbon from 2030 onwards.

2. Disclose

Corgan will measure and disclose annual energy consumption and operational carbon emissions, including whole-life carbon emissions when applicable, to be shared in their annual report.

3. Act

Corgan will develop a climate action plan for their operations with a target to become carbon neutral for all their operational carbon (Scopes 1 and 2) by the end of FY 2025. Corgan will reduce carbon emissions by implementing energy use reduction strategies across their offices and procurement of renewable energy where feasible. Furthermore, Corgan will lay out a strategy to reduce embodied carbon (Scope 3) emissions in alignment with SBTi.

4. Verify

Corgan will verify their carbon emissions by accounting annually through the SME self-assessment pathway, procuring a third-party entity for an independent audit every three years.

5. Advocate

Corgan will continue to engage with the design and construction industry to advance knowledge and tools to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment. Corgan is also a signatory to the AIA 2030 Challenge, for which it records and shares performance data for its projects. Corgan will continue to work with their clients and assist them in creating a path to minimising both operational and embodied carbon emissions in its projects.
