If we are to slow down climate change, the entire construction sector must make great changes. By working smarter and looking at the whole-life perspective of these spaces, we can help people and the planet by creating more sustainable buildings and infrastructure.
We see through experience how low carbon/zero-carbon solutions benefit businesses by driving efficiencies and reducing long term costs. Within our own operations, we’ve reduced carbon emissions by 28 % compared to the base year, 2015. During this period, the Group's revenues have increased. In other words, revenue and focusing on sustainability are not conflicting ambitions, but quite the contrary. 100 % of our external funding for our own projects come from either green bonds or with green requirements.
There’s a shift happening as more and more clients, particularly public clients from which we gain 60 % of our revenue, are requiring sustainable impact. Incorporating sustainable procurement further enables us to work with increased focus and transparently share sustainable performance and measurements.
