Commit owned and developed assets to operate at net zero carbon, achieve maximum reduction of embodied carbon for new developments and major renovations by 2030, and compensate for any remaining residual operational and upfront embodied emissions.
Continue to measure, verify, and publicly disclose annual asset energy demand and carbon emissions (related to scope 1 and 2) through ISO 14001 accredited EMS. Publicly disclose predicted energy demand, carbon emissions in operation and disclose embodied carbon in new construction for developments. Continue to disclose to the annual GRESB survey.
Minimise energy demand in the design, construction and operation of assets, including the installation of renewable energy solutions and 100% renewable energy procurement. Publish building and portfolio level Energy Use Intensity (EUI) targets as part of FORE’s decarbonisation pathway and asset plans. Set targets to maximise embodied carbon reductions and plans to minimise occupier emissions (scope 3) to cover whole building emissions.
Demonstrate enhanced energy efficiency, reduced carbon emissions and progress towards net zero carbon buildings through third party verification in line with greenhouse gas reporting protocols. Set and report science based targets, verified annually and adopt Display Energy Certificates to demonstrate asset performance in use. Verify progress towards embodied carbon reductions using preventions strategies, WLCA calculations, and offsets.
Recognising the imperative to harmonise social and environmental outcomes within the urban system, FORE will act as a catalyst for change by advocating for a transition that is both smart and just. ‘Smart’ will focus on biodiversity, finance, and authentic offsetting strategies. ‘Just’ emphasises jobs and skills, community resilience, and empowerment through technology.
