Commit to operating all new and existing buildings within organisations’ direct control at net zero carbon, achieving maximum reductions of embodied carbon and compensating any residual emissions in new developments and major renovations, by 2030. Support all Group companies to achieve the same.
Annually measure, assess, and disclose Group portfolio energy consumption and carbon emissions, to include scope 1 and 2. For any newly built asset or major renovation, Dar Group will complete whole life cycle analysis for embodied carbon reduction.
Implement a decarbonisation roadmap that outlines a reduction first approach, improving energy efficiency and securing renewable energy. Maximise the reduction of embodied carbon for any new developments or major renovations, compensating for all residual upfront embodied carbon emissions.
Support Group companies in implementing energy conservation measures; procuring renewable energy and offsets; and procuring low-carbon materials for new assets or major refurbishments under direct operational and financial control.
Undertake independent third-party verification of energy performance and associated carbon emissions for assets and portfolio under direct financial and operational control. For the whole life cycle carbon, verify embodied carbon reduction to market baseline requirements upon building a new asset for own use or undertaking any major refurbishment to existing assets under direct control.
Advocate in client engagements by promoting a low embodied carbon approach and net zero carbon pathways; internally through the efforts of Dar Group’s Sustainability Council; and with industry partners by advancing thought leadership on sustainable infrastructure.
