Pledge to Net Zero

Pledge to Net Zero

Company, General info

The latest IPCC report clearly demonstrates that urgent action is required in order to keep global warming due to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to less than 1.5˚C. As a sector, one of Consulting Engineering’s core roles is to advise clients to manage and deliver on environmental challenges and signing up to Pledge to Net Zero is a clear way for as a member of the sector to show leadership in this area.

We have registered for this commitment, and we will demonstrate our actions as leaders in the field, making a real difference within our own operations, as well as continuing to provide world class advice on sustainability and environmental concerns to clients.

The first part of the commitment is to calculate our own carbon footprint and set a target that we need to achieve (short-term and long term).

We have calculated our footprint and set the following target:

46% absolute reduction of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 2030 and 90% by 2050. For Scope 3, a 28% absolute scope reduction by 2030 and 90% by 2050 from a 2019 base year.
