Commit to only occupying assets that are net zero carbon in operation by 2030. Commit to addressing embodied carbon for new and renovated assets under direct control through maximising emissions reduction and offsetting any residual upfront embodied carbon by 2030, as appropriate.
Measure and publicly disclose annual energy consumption and carbon emissions, including whole life carbon data if appropriate, within annual reporting.
Implement a decarbonisation plan to reduce carbon emissions and increase renewably sourced energy of occupied assets. Maximise embodied carbon reductions of any major asset renovations through undertaking of Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), utilisation of low carbon materials, construction processes and compensation of any remaining residual upfront emissions, if appropriate.
Verify energy consumption and carbon emissions data annually via Planet Mark certification.
Advocate for industry transformation by only working with suppliers who uphold high ESG standards and educating clients from the properties they manage on the importance of net zero carbon. Form carbon reduction working groups with occupiers in the buildings they manage and encourage them to work together on the net zero journey, including joining the Commitment. Sign up to the Planet Mark Certification to join a like minded community of businesses to advocate more effectively.
