Real estate advisor Avison Young has announced a goal to reach net zero in its UK buildings by 2030.
The firm said it aims to inspire and lead the transition to net zero carbon buildings and communities and notes it has also signed up to the World Green Building Council’s (WGBC) Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment.
It is now in the process of developing and implementing a decarbonisation roadmap, which includes the acquisition of new premises, the retrofit of existing structures and strategies for renewable energy procurement.
Jason Sibthorpe, President UK at Avison Young, said: “The climate crisis requires immediate action and Avison Young is committed to leading the way. We believe that the most successful companies realise profits are inextricably linked to social purpose.
“Taking action on climate change is a key part of this. Our UK business is at the forefront of this trend by making this commitment to transform our workplaces to net zero carbon, instilling carbon literacy throughout our workforce and helping our clients achieve their own net zero carbon ambitions for the benefit of our wider communities.”
