We're commited to make change and have been working towards net zero for some time, with examples including the introduction of hybrid vehicles to our fleet, battery powered tools, HVO and GTL fuel, LED lighting and much more efficient plant, but we have a long way to go yet.
Decarbonising our business isn't easy, in fact, it's going to take a lot of hard work. Our commitment to Carbon Net Zero by 2050 and a 50% reduction in emisions by 2030 will take planning and require us to capture as much data as possible.
In order to become net zero, we're taking action by the following dates:
By 2030: We will reduce our own carbon emisions by 50% compared with a 2020 baseline.
By 2040: We will reduce our own carbon emisions by a further 50% compared with the 2030 baseline.
By 2050: We will be net-zero for our own carbon emissions. This includes switching to LED lighting, changing our entire vehicle fleet to electric and offsetting any rogue emisions.
As well as becoming net-zero, we will be working with our supply chain from 2022 to start the process of also becoming carbon net-zero. This will be but not limited to the use of electric vehicle fleets or HVO fuel replacements, elimination of single use plastics, offsetting projects for material supplies, utilising closer distributors and combined deliveries to site.
"As a company we know we must recognise what good looks like, understand where we're going and always challenge our thinking, in order to deliver sustainable infrastructure for the long term. We will continue to do what we can, where we can to ensure we always heading in the right direction for the sake of everyone involved" Matt Selby
