How to build a carbon neutral strategy

Alex Mozaffari, Director for Sustainability, shares his advice for businesses at the start of their journey to net zero carbon and how to set up for success by getting the right strategy in place.


What are Scope 3 emissions and why are they important?

Reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions, those under the direct ownership and operational control of the business is usually the first target in a company’s carbon reduction strategy. However, to become truly carbon neutral, Scope 3 emissions, which are indirect emissions released upstream and downstream in a company’s value chain, need to be prioritised too.

Nature-based solutions for offsetting

In the pursuit of net zero, offsetting is increasingly used to help companies balance their unavoidable carbon emissions. And whilst not the perfect solution, if done responsibly, offsetting can help you reach net zero and meet key project requirements such as biodiversity net gain at the same time as protecting and restoring ecosystems.

Measuring Embodied Carbon

To decarbonise the built environment, we need to reduce the greenhouse gases that are emitted during the construction of our assets - the Embodied Carbon. Understanding where these emissions are generated, and reducing them accordingly, is critical if we want to deliver net zero assets.

Kester Purslow, Senior Director gives an insight into how we tackle embodied carbon when delivering low carbon design solutions on behalf of our clients.

What are Science Based Targets?

You're ready to commit to net zero carbon and want to reduce your company’s carbon footprint to play your part in the fight against climate change. But where do you start?

Your journey should start with a strategy driven by Science-Based Targets (SBTs). But what are SBTs and why should you focus on them?
